- You are done, and should see this message “Success! You are now enrolled in Thanks Again Offers. Thank you for joining.”
[Update (7/25/2012): Thanks to a comment from our reader Jasmine, at step 8, make sure you check the boxes on the Visa mobile phone enrollment page when entering your 3-digit code to avoid getting an error message. She also said that using the same cell phone number for multiple accounts worked for her!]
Miles should post to your Thanks Again account within 4-6 weeks and your United Mileage Plus account within 6-8 weeks. Offer expires September 30, 2012.
