A few weeks back United Airlines announced a deal with social media marketing company Bckstgr which will allow customers to earn and redeem points by participating in various social media activities. The first of those opportunities is now live. The front page of the bckstgr site is now offering 1,000 MileagePlus points for signing up.


I only earned 400 points for enrolling and I’m guessing the other 600 come in 200 point increments from linking a Twitter, Facebook and FourSquare account to their tool. We’ll see.
