By: Frank – @dugup46 – The “United MileagePlus® Billion Mile Giveaway Sweepstakes” officially began on August 1, 2016. I have already read over all the terms and conditions for the sweepstakes, and with a little effort, I think we all have a decent shot at snagging some miles!
The contest will award one billion airline miles across 140,100 MileagePlus accounts, using the following prize structure:
Grand prize winners will also receive $7,500 in cash to pay the taxes associated with the value of one million miles (very rare and very thoughtful)!

It wouldn’t be a Loophole Travel post without a loophole, right? After combing through the terms and conditions, I found one. The kicker to this contest is that you can enter the contest an UNLIMITED amount of times online! The overall odds of winning a prize are about 1 in 1,200, but if you have a couple hours to kill during the upcoming months – you could put yourself in a really nice spot to snag some free miles. The real question though, “Is it worth it?” If you have a little time on the couch and could use 5,000 miles, it can’t hurt to try!
