This is by no means new information but you can earn airline miles through utility partners. For several years now I have been signing up for a utility partner to get bonus miles and earn miles for each dollar spent on my utility bill. Then I would switch to a new utility partner about every 6-9 months to get the new bonus! Might as well get miles for utilities you are going to use anyways right!?! Below are the currently participating partners through various airlines. Many are state specific but favor seems to be given to residents of the great state of Texas!
