Today Only: Earn 8x United Miles at Apple!

Apple is one of those stores that rarely has very high of a payout in any of the miles and points or cashback online portals, but today is an exception to that general rule.

Today only (3/10/17), you can earn 8 United miles per dollar for your purchases if you first start your purchase from the United MileagePlus Shopping site! This 8x miles per dollar rate can add up pretty quickly, especially since many Apple products aren’t especially inexpensive!

If you are ordering something expensive like a computer or iPhone, remember to pay with a credit card that has some built-in purchase protections in case something goes wrong and you break it, lose it, etc. I have made use of that sort of protection more than once myself!

Remember this is a today-only increase and the 8x miles per dollar ends at 11:59PM Eastern on 3/10/17.

  1. Caution tho, it says NEWLY released products may not be eligible and my new MacBook Pro was not. 🙁 They can pick what they want and they are opting out of all new stuff.

    • How did you know it wasn’t covered? I’ve been looking at getting a new 15″ MBP. If this would work it would be a great deal. Bummer.

  2. Why would anyone still want united miles? I tried to redeem all my mileage for an ipad with united but they do not ship out my order. They keep saying Apple is pushing back the shipment. Tried to book a hotel with mileage, when you get to the hotel the hotel does not have your booking information. It is just ridiculous!!
