The United MileagePlus shopping portal is offering 6,000 extra miles that are on top of any miles that you would earn with the shopping portal anyway. Here is how it breaks down:

  • Spend $150, earn 500 bonus miles
  • Spend $350, earn 1,500 bonus miles
  • Spend $650, earn 3,000 bonus miles
  • Spend $1,250, earn 6,000 bonus miles

With many retailers issuing bonus increases during this shopping season, it is not unreasonable to assume you could get an average of 4-5 miles per dollar on retailers through the portal. That means that you would pick up for your spending of $1,250 a total of 10,000 – 12,250 United miles!
