Earn Airline Miles for Hurricane Harvey Donations

Article By:


Everyone knows Hurricane Harvey is devastating Texas right now, so I won’t try to be a weatherman and discuss all the damage being done. If you want to help the people of Texas, there’s a couple ways to do so while earning airlines miles in the process.

American Airlines is partnering with the American Red Cross to help fundraise for volunteers and staff to have the resources they need to respond to Harvey. AAdvantage members will earn 10 miles for every dollar they donate now through September 24, 2017. You must make a minimum $25 donation to qualify and the miles should post to your AAdvantage account within 30 days. Be sure to use this Red Cross link.

United is partnering with the above four charities to raise money for Hurricane Harvey relief. In addition to matching the first $200,000 raised through the campaign, United is giving bonus miles to MileagePlus members who donate to any of the above organizations. The mileage giveaway is tiered as follows:

  • Donate $50-$99 and earn 250 miles
  • Donate $100-$249 and earn 500 miles
  • Donate $250 or more and earn 1,000 miles

Donations must be made by September 15, 2017 and you can earn bonus miles a maximum of one time per MileagePlus account. Be sure to use this link when donating to qualify.
