United-Continental frequent flyers can earn miles by checking-in to social sites
The new product comes through a United-Continental partnership with TopGuest.
To get the perks, travelers visit MileagePlus.TopGuest.com or OnePass.topguest.com to register their frequent flyer accounts, link them with Foursquare or Facebook, and then use these social networks to check-in at Continental or United airports in the US.
Travelers will then receive notifications in their email about receiving the awards miles plus restaurant, merchant and rental car offers from Avis and Hertz, and others.
United-Continental and TopGuest note that participating partners include hundreds of merchants at Denver, Houston-Bush Intercontinental, Newark Liberty and San Francisco Airports, as well as some 10,000 restaurants involved in the MileagePlus Dining program.
TopGuest website has listed all the airports where where your check-ins will count. Travelers using the service can accrue 50 award miles once daily and it will take six to eight weeks before they post to OnePass and MileagePlus accounts, the airlines say.
