Back to school season is about to kick off in the North America and airlines related online shopping malls are launching their seasonal promotions.
United MileagePlus Shopping is offering up to 2,000 bonus miles for spending $500 via the shopping portal retailers between July 14 and August 31, 2014.
You can access this offer here.
You basically earn 500 bonus miles for every $125 spent for up to 2,000 miles after spending $500 cumulatively. There doesn’t seem to be a requirement to register for this offer to take advantage of it.
I always use straight cashback malls over these airline related ones when there are no bonus offers such as this around.
United must have instructed Cartera (company that runs this for United) to exclude most of the travel related suppliers from the MileagePlus Shopping. They are available on other airline shopping portal handled by Cartera such as the AAdvantage Eshopping.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
*7/14/14 through 8/31/14 11:59 PM ET receive 500 bonus miles with every $125 spent online through MileagePlus Shopping; up to 2,000 bonus miles. Returns, shipping and taxes are not eligible for bonus. Please allow 8-10 weeks for bonus miles to post to your account. The maximum number of bonus miles that can be awarded to each qualifying member through this promotion is 2,000 bonus miles. This offer cannot be combined with other bonus offers. Increased earning opportunities are for a limited time only and at the discretion of each individual merchant. Please check site daily for updates to increased earning opportunities.
