Hey all, long-time lurker, first time poster. Hope you all can offer some sage advice.
My girlfriend and I are in a long-distance relationship. Right now we fly Delta because it's the only direct. However, a new job in the fall means we'll fly UA much more. Getting ahead of the ball, I was going to sign both of us for dividend miles now, and try to accumulate some points for the fall. However, at sign-up I saw there's a promo code space. I've scoured the internets and found no active promo code that awards points just for signing up now.
My two-fold question is this:
(1) Is there a valid promo code for signing up right now?
(2) If there is not, and I don't intend to fly UA until September, should I sign up now or stand pat in the hopes they release a sign-up promo code soon?
Programs: Delta DM, SPG Plat, Hyatt Diamond, MTA Rust, Hertz Five Star something or other
I don't think there is a current sign-up promo for new members. There was one that was good until September 30, 2010 that gave 1,500 points for new members and they run intermittently, so if you don't need to sign up right now, it may make sense to wait a bit.
If you want some easy miles, you can get 500 points for installing the tool bar.

I entered it during sign up but didn't get a confirmation if it worked or not. As of right now, my miles say 0.
After my miles were created, I connected my already purchased ticket to my dividend miles account and inputted my US Airways frequent flyer number in there. I saw that I could put in my frequent flyer for another airline. Would that mean I would then accumulate points w/ that Airline? If so, I'd rather put my United in. I fly that much more often.
