Here is another great eBags portal deal, just in time for the fall/Christmas travel season and gift giving! There are a couple of elements to this deal, but it is very easy and can get you quite a few miles and money off!
Great Deal: Up to 23 United Miles Per Dollar and $20 Off
Today, the United Airlines Mileage Plus shopping portal is giving out 18 miles per dollar spent. That is a very decent deal by itself, but it gets better. If you spend $200, you should also receive an additional 1,000 miles (this may be targeted, so check your e-mail or MileagePlus portal account). So, that gives us 23 United miles per dollar if we spend $200.
However, there is another promotion going on right now from them as well – if you spend $100, you will get $20 off (this does not work on all brands). That is a good deal by itself, but a great deal when combined with the other deals.
When we put it all together, the math looks like this (for a purchase of $220) – 4,600 United MileagePlus miles + $20 off. When we assign a conservative value to those points, we get something like this – $90 in United miles value + we have saved $20. Combining the discount and value together, we get a net cost of $110 for $220 worth of merchandise, which could be a pretty nice travel bag.
How To Put It All Together
Start At the United MileagePlus Shopping Portal
Go to the United MileagePlus portal and login. Then search for eBags and you should see this:
Note – you cannot use coupons from outside the the eBags website or else you may void your cashback (if an offer is listed on eBags.com, you can use that).
Start shopping at eBags!
Do not forget to sign-up for the eBags reward program to earn an additional 5% in points for future orders!
Now, there may be items that are marked quite a bit higher than other retailers have them listed for. That is definitely not the case with everything, so just make sure you do a little comparison shopping to make sure you have the best price (or at least close to the best price, considering the amount of points you will be earning). The best percentage for this deal is if your order is $220. Just make sure that you do this today as the 18 miles per dollar offer expires today.
There are quite a few items at eBags that present some great deals and would make great Christmas presents or give you a great bag for your travel. Remember, it does not have to be one item but can be a variety of items that equal that $220 number.
