2,000 United Bonus Miles for Using their Shopping Portal
United is offering a bonus for using their shopping portal in honor of the back-to-school season.
- Spend $1,000 and get 2,000 bonus miles
- Spend $750 and get 1,500 bonus miles
- Spend $250 and get 500 bonus miles
All the bonus miles are on top of the regular portal earning which vary by store.
The Fine Print
- Offer runs from 07/21/16 through 08/12/16 at 11:59:59 pm ET (the “Bonus Period”)
- The $250/$500/$1,000 tiers are based on your cumulative purchases made during the Bonus Period
- “Qualifying purchases” do not include returns, cancellations, shipping and handling, taxes, gift card or other cash equivalent purchases, and certain products that are not eligible for bonus miles
Extra 2x on all shopping if you hit the exact tier amounts. This time, they’re kept it simple and offering two bonus miles per dollar in all of the tiers.
After factoring in the extra 2x, that could make the United portal the best deal. Of course, always double check the best rates here to make sure it’s worthwhile.
Keep in mind that the United portal offers .5 miles per dollar on eBay; 1 mile per dollar if you have the United credit card.
