Northbrook, IL (PressExposure) February 18, 2013 -- Allstate Insurance Company announced that members of United Airlines' MileagePlus program may earn MileagePlus award miles for pursuing Allstate for a new auto or homeowners policy.
Together with United, Allstate has developed this exclusive consumer offer to add value for new Allstate customers and build member loyalty within the MileagePlus program. This relationship is a trailblazer in the insurance industry and is one of the first programs of its kind to offer rewards.
"Allstate is excited to work with United to exclusively market auto and homeowners insurance to MileagePlus members," said James Rosseau, president of Allstate Affinity Solutions. "United is an industry leader and its MileagePlus program provides opportunities for customers to earn and use miles worldwide. Allstate is a leader in our industry as well and offers a wealth of innovative products and services that help protect customers from life's uncertainties. Together, we can take care of people where they live, when they drive and when they fly."

"As we continue to expand the opportunities our members have to earn and use their miles and further enrich the world's leading travel loyalty program, United is pleased to join with Allstate to offer unique new benefits to our mutual customers," said Tom O'Toole, president of MileagePlus and senior vice president of Marketing and Loyalty at United Airlines.
