Whether you are the type who likes to pick up some fancy Valentine’s Day presents, or just the kind who needs to order some coffee beans or dog food in the next couple of weeks, there are likely to be some Valentine’s Day themed shopping miles and points bonuses that you may want to know about.
Today the United MileagePlus Shopping site has kicked off a Valentine’s themed bonus of 500 or 1,000 miles that will run from January 30 – February 14, 2017.
You can earn one bonus based on your cumulative shopping through the site and their 100’s of popular retailers during that time period by hitting one of the following spending thresholds:
- 500 miles for cumulative qualifying purchases of at least $125
- 1,000 miles for cumulative qualifying purchases of at least $250 or more
As always this bonus is in addition to the miles you earn specifically from your retailer of choice + the miles/points you earn for paying with a rewards credit card. I’ll update if/when some similar online shopping sites follow suit with bonus miles of their own!
Terms and Conditions:
During the “Valentine’s Day Bonus” bonus campaign, which runs from 01/30/17 through 02/14/17 at 11:59:59 pm ET (the “Bonus Period”), Member will earn a one-time bonus of up to 1,000 MileagePlus® bonus award miles on qualifying purchases, in addition to the standard MileagePlus miles earned from shopping online through the MileagePlus® Shopping mall. This one-time bonus award will be determined using one of the following tiers, based on Member’s cumulative qualifying purchases made during the Bonus Period: Tier 1 bonus: 500 miles for qualifying purchases of at least $125; or Tier 2 bonus: 1,000 miles for qualifying purchases of at least $250 or more. “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. Please see the MileagePlus® Shopping mall site for details on product eligibility and other restrictions. Please allow 8-10 weeks after the Bonus Period for bonus award miles to post to your MileagePlus® Shopping account. The Tier 2 bonus provides the maximum number of miles that will be awarded. Void where prohibited by law.
