2,000 United Bonus Miles for Using their Shopping Portal

The Offer

Direct Link

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 $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

Our Verdict

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.

anyone get their bonus miles for their may purchases yet/


not yet… upsetting.


No points posted here. From May I did get an email confirming I qualified for some bonus miles (no # given but should be 1000). Did it again in June and haven’t seen even an email after that one.


And the had to announce this right after I finished all my HP Amex offers.. 🙁


Did you use them on GC? Curious if United works for GC/eGC purchase despite terms.


I got an email notification for the first 1000 mile bonus, in early June, that my purchases qualified… but nothing since.. then the 2nd 1000 mile bonus I purchased should have qualified but nothing yet… makes me think twice about jumping on this
