Bonus Promo: Earn Up to 5,000 Bonus United Miles Shopping Online

Written by Charlie

Start racking up the United miles with this new portal bonus offer! You can earn up to 5,000 extra miles on top of the miles you earn from the retailers – that is an extra 3.3 miles per dollar on your spending!

This is definitely the season for spending and you can actually earn quite a few miles and points by just starting your online shopping through a portal first. It literally takes just a few extra seconds and you will be getting the same prices you would otherwise but will also earn a lot of miles for that brief stop first.

The first one up today that will let you earn thousands more miles in bonuses is United.

Here are the details of this holiday shopping bonus promotion (remember, these bonus miles are on top of whatever you would earn from each retailer as well).

  • The Holiday Bonus offer runs from 10/29/2018 through November 18, 2018 at 11:59:59PM ET
  • Member will earn a one-time bonus of up to 5,000 MileagePlus bonus award miles on qualifying purchases made through the portal or through MileagePlus shopping in-store offers
  • This bonus is based on cumulative purchases
    • 500 bonus miles for at least $150 spent
    • 2,500 bonus miles for at least $750 spent
    • 5,000 bonus miles for at least $1,500 spent
  • Qualifying purchases do not include returns, cancellations, shipping and handling, taxes, gift cards or other cash equivalent purchase

This is a generous bonus offer since you will earn an extra 3.3 miles per dollar on top of what you get from each retailer! This is really nice when some retailers are already offering some good bonuses now.

United’s shopping portal actually post the miles from purchases pretty quick – I have had them in my account within 5 days. The miles from bonuses like this do take a bit longer (I just received my miles last week from my “back-to-school” promo purchases in August).
