[Update] Miles App Review: Get Points Automatically for Every Mile You Go [$5 Walmart Cards Available]

0


Update 12/22/20: limited number of $5 Walmart cards available for 5,000 miles. Seems to be targeted so not available to everybody

There’s a new app called ‘Miles‘ which tracks your movements and gives you points for every mile you go. It runs entirely in the background without the need to open it or do anything. It’s currently only available for iOS and is coming soon to Android.

  • .1 miles for each air mile
  • 1 mile for each car mile
  • 2 miles for each carpool or ride-share mile
  • 3 miles for each mass transit mile
  • 5 miles for each biking mile
  • 10 miles for each walking mile

Points can be redeemed for prizes to get discounts at select vendors. Some sample prizes:

  • $5 Vudu credit + free movies – costs 1,200 miles
  • New Wag! customers can get 2 free walks and a free lockbox – costs 1,200 miles
  • 7-day free trial with Coursera – costs 500 miles
  • 20% off your Rhone purchase – costs 600 miles
  • New Silvercar customers: book an Audi for 1 day or more and get a extra day free – costs 1,200 miles

Our Verdict

At launch, they allowed points to be redeemed for gift cards to places like Amazon. That made the app useful for someone willing to give up their privacy. Now that they just have these various discount offers, I doubt it’s worth anyone’s time/privacy.

Most of the offers look like the regular recycled first-time-customer offers you see on various platforms, not something special to the Miles app. There is a $5 Vudu credit for 1,200 miles, so that might be useful to some. Other than that, if anyone notices something good, let us know.

Post history:

  • [Update 1/17/20: They sent out an email blast that “tomorrow at 3 pm PT” (I think that means Friday 1/17/20 at 3 pm PT) they’ll be releasing an Amazon gift card redemption option with limited quantity. If you have Miles points racked up, you’ll want to keep an eye out since the other redemptions aren’t usually that good.]
