United has a new mileage-earning partner: ScoreBig, “the place to save every day on sports, concert and theater tickets without paying any fees or shipping charges for the privilege. All our tickets are below box office price and 100% guaranteed.”
Elsewhere, ScoreBig describes itself as “the live entertainment industry’s first online marketplace for the safe and secure liquidation of unsold ticket inventory.” In other words, a distributor of distressed inventory. What, in the travel world, we’d call a consolidator.
Beginning this week, MileagePlus members earn five miles for every $1 spent on tickets. And through September 30, there’s a one-time 1,000-mile bonus for the first purchase of $30 or more.
Deal or No Deal
Five miles per $1 spent is a decent payout, especially for heavily discounted products, which tend to award a token one or two miles per $1. And the introductory bonus is a compelling one, representing the opportunity to earn more than 30 miles per $1.
Worth a look!
