Economy Class: Free Rides

First, earn up to 6,000 bonus miles by joining WorldPerks the program and flying Northwest or any of its 26 global partners by Dec. 15.

Both new and current WorldPerks Visa Card holders can also earn 4,000 bonus miles by charging $1,000 or more on direct Northwest purchases, such as airline tickets, Northwest gift certificates, WorldClubs memberships and through merchandise purchases at Northwest’s WORLDgear stores. You have to register for this one too, by calling 800-508-2000, extension 8472. Apply for the WorldPerks Visa Card at their Web site or call 800-360-2900, extension 895.
