Exclamation United Mileage Plus magazine service.

I found this of interest and thought I'd pass it along being as I had not come across it on the web site.

Basically redeem UA miles for magazines.

Phone 1-800-961-8723. I just keep hitting 0 until i got a human and then I redeemed miles for a subscription to the Economist (3200 for 1 year)

The automated system asks if you have a "form ready". It turns out that this refers to a form that MP sends out to members who's miles are about to expire so they can redeem then for magazines . But anyone can use the service.

Yup. And it's an even better deal if you use Delta Skymiles for this trade instead, since we all know MP miles are actually useful whereas those skymiles.... not so much.

Cash in 3,200 skymiles for one year of The Economist (excellent magazine) or many other mags online here: http://delta.mpmvp.com/magazine/choose.asp

No messy phone conversations needed, and your valuable MP balance doesn't go down. ^
