Reposting as this is still available, there is a similar offer but that requires a $50 purchase. Others recently received an offer but for only 1,500 miles total.
- Signup for a free MyPoints account (a shopping portal) and receive 750 free United miles
- Use the MyPoints shopping portal to make purchases totaling $25 or more within 30 days and receive another bonus of 1000 United miles (you’ll also earn the regular MyPoints earnings on the purchase)
You can shop at eBay, Groupon, Walmart or any other partner found in the MyPoints shopping portal to get the extra 1,000 miles.
The Fine Print
- Please allow 6-8 weeks after completed qualifying activity for miles to post to your account
- Eligible purchases include any shopping or travel purchases (excluding Amazon.com, MyPoints games, Swappable gift cards and the MyPoints Store gift cards) of at least $25 each (excluding taxes, shipping & handling and special processing fees) made through the MyPoints.com website
- This offer is eligible for new members only
- Purchases must be made within the first 30 days of membership to receive the bonus reward
This offer has been around a few times before, sometimes it’s 1500 miles and sometimes it’s 1750. If you never signed up for MyPoints before, it’s an easy way to net those free points. When I did this deal a while back, I got an instant email confirming the bonus points offer.
