While lots of folks are happy to do what they can to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey, others are motivated by a little incentive. So some airlines are now offering bonus miles to those who make donations.
United Airlines says MileagePlus members who give to the American Red Cross, AmeriCares, Airlink, or Operation USA via the airline’s fundraising page will get bonus miles, starting at 250 miles for a donation of $50 to $99. The more money you give, the more bonus miles you get, up to 1,000 miles.
American Airlines is also offering bonus miles for Hurricane relief donations. Through September 24, their AAdvantage members will earn 10 miles for every dollar donated to the Red Cross, with a minimum donation of $25.
And if you don’t have cash to give, the Red Cross also accepts donations of airline miles to help transport victims and volunteers. So do what you can to help others in need with what you’ve got. Every little bit helps!
