Welcome to the Monkees.Net Alert Newsletter!

Here is a special offer for our readers, please support this newsletter!

Monkees fans, I (Brad) personally use a program called WebMiles to earn
free airline flights by making normal daily purchases on the web, eating at
restaurants, and using the optional credit card. I have earned 3 free
flights already (short local flights).

It’s a totally free program to join and costs you nothing to be a member! I
get up to 5 WebMiles for every dollar I spend at their partner stores.
What’s more, these miles are better than frequent flier miles because I can
redeem them for free or discounted travel on any airline with no blackout

All you have to do is click on this link to join:

WebMiles will give me 100 miles just for referring you to join! Then you
can refer your friends, it’s totally free and you can get the flights free.
Please try this program, and thanks for your support for this newsletter!!
I really appreciate it.



Today (Friday August 10) The Monkees (Micky, David, Mike) will be guests on
Laugh In – a show being rerun complete for the first time since the 1960’s
on the channel Trio on DirectTV digital dish television.
