When I first had a baby I didn’t realize that they essentially were in “school” from almost the time they were born. Little C is only 19 months old and she already is about to start a new “school year” complete with “tuition” increase! As a kid, the one fun thing about back-to-school time was back-to-school shopping! Maybe I was a freak, but getting new school supplies, and especially new clothes, was tons of fun! As the one on the buying end, it’s now not quite as fun, but here is a deal to at least get your family a few extra points from purchases you were going to have to make anyway!
The United Mileage Plus shopping portal is awarding you 250 extra miles if you spend $100 doing back to school shopping at select retailers. Of course, you can spend the $100 on things other than school shopping! I have had great success in getting most of my miles from purchases made through this portal to post relatively quickly and without incident. What it seems to lack in huge point awards, it makes up with variety of retailers and reliability of points posting.
This is not a “blockbuster” deal, but it is something to keep in mind if you need to do some shopping before August 31st at some of their selected retailers.
Go here to get additional details and to start earning United MileagePlus miles for your online purchases! Now it’s time to get out and go enjoy the weekend!
