Need to add miles to keep FF miles active

I recall, there being a site that "gave" you 1 mile, to FF accounts to keep them active. Anyone, know, if this is still available?

Thank you for the response, but I should have been specific. I need United miles, and this site does not participate?

In that case simply sign up for Mileage Plus Dining and eat something.

Don't you shop? Whenever I plan to order something online I look at my various airline or hotel accounts and link through their websites to earn miles or points. You usually have to register the first time. After that just log in. It takes some stores several weeks to post miles/points.
For United shopping:

I just checked the rules and it still says any "activity" keeps the miles active.
www.united.com/page/article/0,6722,1155,00.html

That means that using miles also keeps miles active. You could donate 1,000 miles to a charity and that would probably do it.

Shop at the airlines' websites " shopping Mall"I buy myself gift cards for stores where I shop frequently. Easy and keeps those miles safe for another 18 months.

Buying gift cards to oneself is an excellent idea HappyTrvle.

Thank you all for the great advice. Now, if, they just get credited in an acceptable timeframe. They expire day after tomorrow.

As kybourbon says, it takes weeks for miles to post. I doubt you'll get them before Friday.

United participates in magsformiles.com. You can get subscriptions online and they might have an 800 number you can call and tell them your situation and see what they say. You can use as little as 400 miles and you are good for the next little bit.
