I came across a good deal that could earn you a free flight if you were interested in signing up for or switching over to DIRECTV service. You can now earn 30,000 United miles or 25,000 American miles for signing up with DIRECTV on certain plans that start at $29.99/month plus taxes. Both offers are valid through 10/1/14.
The value of these miles could range from $300 to $600 depending how you would use them. In both United’s and American’s reward program, 25,000 miles will get you one domestic round trip flight (on average $300+ in value) OR a one way flight to Europe or South America (this would be closer to a $600+ value).
I’m not a DIRECTV customer but the prices seem fairly reasonable (especially if you want NFL Sunday Ticket since it is included at no extra charge). I obviously wouldn’t go out of my way to take advantage of this deal but if you already had some thoughts of switching, maybe this is the icing on the cake to do so.
