This is probably the sweetest deal out there. Dare I say, this is the high fructose corn syrup of deals. This is the glazed Krispy Kreme with chocolate icing and custard filling donut of deals. This is the diabetic coma of… You get my point. I have never seen a deal like this and I am over 30. This is even more rare than Ed Begley, Jr. burning tires in his back yard. Which does happen…
Open a Chase personal checking account and get 25,000 Frequent Flyer miles – which is enough for a free round trip ticket, on Continental. “But Chip I never fly on Continental.” I doubt I’ve ever flown on Continental either. And soon, no one will because they are merging with United. And so will your Continental FF miles.
You can also open a Chase business checking account and get 25,000 more Continental FF miles. “But Chip, I don’t have a business…” Trust me. You might.
I did this and in 21 days, I went from having zero frequent flyer miles on Continental to 45k FF miles. A month later I got the remaining miles for a total of 50k FF miles. Now guess who‘s flying Continental slash United?
The 50K FF miles can get you two round trip coach tickets or one round trip first class ticket, with miles left over. Or use the miles to fly internationally. Check Continental’s website for availability. If you are watching this at my website, ChipsMoneyTips.com, there is a link to Continental right below this video.
I opened TWO accounts. This whole process took me an hour and 15 minutes. From obtaining a Continental Frequent Flyer number online, going to the bank to opening TWO accounts, and making the required purchases on the debit cards. And those of you who know me, know that I am the kind of weirdo to put a clock on it.
I don’t know that I have ever flown on Continental in my life, but I will now. Or, I can use the miles to buy a ticket for a friend or family member. If you don’t fly, that makes a heck of a present. It is also great to have Frequent Flyer miles at your disposal in case you have a family emergency and need to fly somewhere on short notice.
