    You get fewer points if you don’t use all three forms of social media. You also need to complete your profile.

    I used a mailinator account (thanks, Raffles), but no confirmations were sent out. I went back to check my settings within Twitter, Foursquare and Facebook to make sure that the app did as little damage as possible to my accounts/reputation.

    I created a new twitter and 4sq account.

    It seems to be 400 points for signing up for the service (which post to MileagePlus instantly), plus 200 more for each of Twitter, Foursquare and Facebook. When you go through the step to connect to your Facebook profile, probably best to set it so that posts it makes are viewable by ‘only me’, to prevent it spamming your friends. There’s a further 25 points for liking BCKSTGR (what a terrible name!) on Facebook, and nothing to stop you immediately unliking them afterwards.
