There are two new bonus miles offers available in the online airline shopping portals that I wanted to mention in case there is some online shopping in your future. Remember that these bonus miles are paid in addition to the regular miles you earn by using your rewards earning credit card and in addition to whatever the regular mileage payout is at the retailer you select. For those brand new to online shopping portals, this is a very easy way to earn miles when making online purchases at your favorite retailers just by going through one extra website first.
If you have cumulative purchases in the United MileagePlus Shopping portal from 5/13/15 – 6/15/15 totaling at least $150 then you can earn some bonus miles in the following amounts.
Spend a cumulative $150+ and earn 500 bonus United miles
Spend a cumulative $350+ and earn 1,000 bonus United miles
Spend a cumulative $700+ and earn 2,500 bonus United miles
