United’s MileagePlus Shopping is a running a promotion until November 24, 2015, which they are calling “Holiday Early Access”. Through this promotion you can earn up to 6,000 bonus United miles when you make at least $1,250.00 in purchases via the MileagePlus Shopping during the promotional period.
Those bonus miles are in addition to the standard bonus miles you would regularly earn for MileagePlus Shopping purchases, hence the opportunity to earn over 10,000 miles. In other words, assuming you spend $1,250.00 and are able to earn on average 4 miles per dollar for your purchases, you will be able to earn 5,000 miles directly from those purchases plus the 6,000 miles bonus.
The terms and conditions of this promotion are the following:
As you can see, even if you are unable to reach the $1,250.00 level in purchases, you can still earn 3,000 bonus miles if you make at least $650 in purchases or 1,500 bonus miles if you make at least $350 in purchases via the MileagePlus Shopping during the promotional period.
As is usually the case, most merchants will be offering increased bonus miles for eshopping purchases this Holiday period, so this is a great opportunity to truly maximize the number of miles you can earn.
