Targeted offer: “MileagePlus Shopping 12 Month We Miss You Bonus”

Share via:


United is targeting MileagePlus members who haven’t made a purchase in at least 12 months with this latest MileagePlus Shopping promotion. Shopping is a great way to earn bonus miles, and in parallel, the Fall Bonus promotion is currently running with earnings of up to 1,500 bonus miles through 10/13 (spend $150 and earn 1,500 bonus miles). Note that the according to the terms, however, this promotion cannot be combined with any other. So hopes of banking 2,500 bonus miles on a $200 purchase might be misplaced. I’ve inquired of Mileage Plus Shopping to determine what happens if I make a purchase of say $200 in the overlapping period of the two offers. Hopefully they respond soon.
