I Won 25K United Miles from Chase for a Contest I Didn’t Enter!

by Adam

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?

mp-rewardBillion 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!

That’s petty cool, Adam! 25K is an easy amount, and will surely come in handy.
