- $100 to $249 – 500 United Airlines miles

To participate, donate by May 15, 2015, at 11:59 pm Central Time. United Airlines says they’ll give out a total of 5 million miles.
And remember, with a US Bank FlexPerks Rewards card, you’ll earn 3 FlexPerks points per $1 spent on charitable donations.
And through May 31, 2015, American Express will rebate the merchant rate on donations made directly to:
- American Red Cross
- CARE USA
- Doctors Without Borders
- International Medical Corps

So you can feel comfortable using your AMEX card to make your donation, because the charity won’t be charged big merchant fees.
