The quest to earn miles has been put on hold, I guess, as everyone is trying to figure out life on a day-to-day basis under lockdown. Given everyone is staying home, this has meant no one is earning miles with flying and so on. We wrote up a guide to making miles from home when you spend on groceries. Check it out if you haven’t already.
Now, some mileage programmes across the world have started promotions to make you earn miles from home. InterMiles, the homegrown rewards programme has also jumped in with at least two different ways to earn InterMiles from home.
Watch Webinars at home and earn InterMiles
T.EDxGateway, which is one of the oldest TEDx talks in town, has launched a series of online webinars, and if you sign up to attend and are an existing InterMiles member, you can earn 500 InterMiles every webinar you attend till May 10, 2020. For instance, here are the two webinars happening on April 25-26, 2020, at 5 PM IST.
To earn these InterMiles, InterMiles members must register for the TEDxGateway webinars via any InterMiles channel such as the app, emails, social media, intermiles.com and so on. One needs to make sure that they use the same email address and phone number as used for the membership of InterMiles. One needs to attend at least 15 minutes of the webinar to receive the miles. The InterMiles post within seven days of registering and attending the webinar. Also, there are specific webinars where this promotion applies, which InterMiles will decide. These webinars are hosted on Zoom, so if you have any concerns on that, make peace with them beforehand. Members from outside India cannot take part in the promotion.
Stay at home with the InterMiles app.
The second promotion, which has been ongoing since earlier this week, is InterMiles offering you miles for downloading their app and keeping it on 24×7. You also need to give the app access to your location settings. For every calendar day, you keep the app open in the background, you get 100 InterMiles.
The InterMiles app launched very recently, at the end of February 2020, almost around the time the CoVid19 pandemic was in its element. So, this is an excellent way for InterMiles to get people to download and use the app while being at home, and they perhaps hope people will explore many of the functionalities of the app as well in the process. This promotion is on from April 16 till May 3, 2020. The end date is related to the lockdown end date. However, the T&C does not expressly mention if the lockdown extends, does the promotion also extend accordingly. Again, the promotion is only valid for those in India.
I started to participate from April 17 onwards, so I hope I will get 1600 of the 1700 miles on offer. Miles will be credited within ten days.
So, if you are up for earning some InterMiles while sitting at home, here are a couple of ways to collect them.
