United MileagePlus Online Shopping Bonus 1,500 Miles (Targeted?)


United seems to be pushing their MileagePlus Shopping program a lot lately. They now have a new offer for up to 1,500 bonus miles for three purchases of $25 or more between October 22 and November 11, 2013.


You earn 500 bonus miles for first purchase of $25 or more and an additional 1,000 bonus miles for two separate additional purchases of $25 or more during the promotional period.

Note that the terms and conditions state that this offer would be only available for those that received an email invitation from United. You can access this offer here.


There are very few (none actually) travel related providers beyond Gilt on MileagePlus shopping. Maybe they should extend the number of partners, so that more people (myself included) could take advantage of these offers?

Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:

Offer valid from 10/22 – 11/11/13 11:59:59pm EST. To qualify for the first 500 bonus mile offer, you must make a single purchase of $25 or more with any MileagePlus Shopping online retailer. To qualify for the additional 1,000 bonus miles, you must make two additional purchases with any participating online retailer, for a cumulative amount of $50 or more. The maximum number of bonus miles that can be awarded to each qualifying member through this promotion is 1,500 bonus miles with at least 3 purchases and a total spend of $75 through MileagePlus Shopping. This bonus offer is only available for members who received an email from MileagePlus Shopping. Returns, shipping, taxes, gift card purchases, and certain products are not eligible for bonus; please see site for details on any coupon code details or usage restrictions. Please allow 8-10 weeks for bonus miles to post to your account.
