There are already a few shopping promos going on at the moment that can really up the number of miles you earn per dollar spent. These offers include your ability to earn 10x United miles per dollar spent at select restaurants and retailers in the MileagePlus X app and the sitewide “mystery bonus” number of miles available via the AAdvantage Shopping site.
But in case neither of those offers meet your shopping needs, or you simply have already used them as much as you can, there is now another bonus campaign available via the United MileagePlus Shopping site that runs from 6/9/16 – 6/23/17 and awards up to 1,500 bonus United miles for your online purchases.
Earn a one-time United mileage bonus:
- Spend $150+ from 6/9/17 – 6/23/17 and earn 500 bonus United miles
- Spend $350+ from 6/9/17 – 6/23/17 and earn 1,500 bonus United miles
These bonus miles are on top of those awarded from the individual retailer you are utilizing and the rewards you earn by paying for your purchase with your credit card of choice. If you spend right at $350 to trigger the 1,500 mileage bonus, that is like earning an extra 4+ miles per dollar spent, which at some retailers that usually have lower payouts (Apple, Walmart, etc.), that isn’t too shabby.
How are you maximizing your summer purchases?
