If you had some online shopping to do anyway, this is a great way to get a few extra miles for it! I’ve had better luck with these promotions posting correctly recently than in the past, but do be aware that they don’t always post correctly, so keep track of your purchases and if the bonus miles haven’t posted by mid-September you may have to follow-up to get your missing miles.
There is also contest you can enter (no purchase required) and try to win 100,000 United MileagePlus miles and five $1,000 gift cards from a variety of merchants. Thanks to Michael W Travels for sharing info about the promotion!
