United has launched an award adventure game that has daily prices but more importantly you may qualify for merchandise award discount of up to 50%.
You need to play this game for 3 to 4 rounds before your individual merchandise award discount in unveiled.
You can access this game on United’s website here.
Note that the merchandise award discount is not dependent how well or bad you do in the game.
I played the game on my own account that got the 15% discount and family member’s one whose discount was capped at just 10%. Using United MileagePlus miles for merchandise awards is lose lose proposition and I would only do it if I had more miles that I could ever dream of redeem.
