I was super excited to receive the email below from Chase, informing me that I was a First Prize winner in the Billion Mile Giveaway. I won 25,000 United MileagePlus miles! What?
Billion Mile Sweepstakes? I didn’t remember entering the giveaway, so I browsed on over to the T&Cs and saw that entry in the contest was automatic:
An Eligible Participant will automatically receive one (1) Sweepstakes entry for each eligible purchase made with an eligible United MileagePlus Chase credit card during the Promotional Period at a participating merchant location in the U.S.
Even more amazing since the card was canceled (and credit line used to obtain a new Chase card) within 10 days of the start of the sweepstakes period! The points had already even posted to my account!
Not a bad Saturday morning treat!
