Global Traveler magazine is offering up United Airlines Mileage Plus bonus miles for new subscribers. A one-year subscription costs $29.95 and nets you 500 miles, two years is $52.95 for 1,000 miles, and three years at $84.95 will get you the max 1,500 miles.
The magazine caters to high-end business and luxury travelers, and features airline & hotel reviews (think premium cabins and 5-Star properties), as well as news, articles, city guides and other travel-related topics. The subscription comes with a weekly digital eFlyer edition, which is “full of timely travel information,” and you can select either the U.S. or Asia version. Take a look at a little faux pas they made on the mail-in version:
Hmm, United “SkyMiles,” huh? Delta Air Lines is probably amused by the mistake, but they’ve correctly attributed the Mileage Plus program to United on the online subscription form. Also, the $89.95 rate for three years per the card is $84.95 online.
It’s a good magazine and the airline reviews are top notch, although I won’t be subscribing. I fly frequently enough and pick up a copy at United’s Red Carpet Clubs, where it is often the only magazine worth looking at, particularly at LAX. I hope the upgrades United is planning for the clubs includes a better selection of magazines and newspapers!
