See the World Sweepstakes: Your Chance to Win 100,000 MileagePlus Miles
T he See the World Sweepstakes from the United Airlines MileagePlus frequent flier loyalty program and eShopping has provided you with an opportunity for your chance to win 100,000 MileagePlus miles and $2,500.00 as a grand prize; or you could be one of three winners — each of whom will receive 20,000 MileagePlus miles.
You may receive a total of 706 entries during the promotion period by combining the methods of entries listed below. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same MileagePlus membership account number.
You may only receive one entry during the promotion period — which ends on Monday, October 31, 2016 at 11:59 in the evening Eastern Daylight Time — by becoming a member of the MileagePlus eShopping mall; or simply by registering for the sweepstakes if you are already a member.
Additional entries for a qualified purchase are limited to 25 per day or five qualified purchases; and you may receive additional entries into the sweepstakes by taking the following actions:
- Subscribe to receive MileagePlus eShopping mall marketing communications. After you register, you may be asked to sign up to receive marketing communications via e-mail message. If you agree to receive these communications and — or if you do not “unsubscribe” from e-mail communications if you are already receiving them — you will receive five additional entries into the sweepstakes as long as you remain opted in as of Monday, October 31, 2016 at 11:59 in the evening Eastern Daylight Time. You will only receive five entries during the promotion period for subscribing to communications via e-mail messages.
- Purchase items via the MileagePlus eShopping mall on the Internet. Visit the official Internet web site of the MileagePlus eShopping mall and execute a qualifying purchase as defined by the terms and conditions of the MileagePlus eShopping mall program with a participating merchant where the total cost of the item or items purchased — excluding shipping and taxes — is at least $50.00. Multiple items purchased during one day with a single merchant — regardless of whether purchased in one or multiple transactions — are deemed a single qualifying purchase and must meet the minimum value of $50.00. You will receive five additional entries into the sweepstakes for each qualifying purchase by you. Gift cards may not count as a qualifying purchase. There is no limit on the number of purchases effected by you. You may only earn entries for five qualifying purchase per day during the promotion period; but each qualifying purchase must be with a different merchant; therefore, there is a maximum of 25 entries per day.
- Earn additional entries without purchase or opting in to marketing communications. If you do not wish to subscribe to receive marketing communications via e-mail messages or purchase an item from a merchant, you can mail in your entry and earn five entries for each mail-in entry received by following these steps:
- Hand print on a 3″ x 5″ piece of paper your:
- Day and evening telephone numbers
- E-mail address
- MileagePlan membership account number

…and if this sweepstakes sounds familiar, it should: the exact same sweepstakes was offered by eShopping and both the American Airlines AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program with the Latitude Adjustment Sweepstakes — that sweepstakes had already ended — and the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan frequent flier loyalty program with the Miles to Anywhere Sweepstakes, which ends on Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 11:59 in the evening Eastern Daylight Time.
By the way — if you were wondering about the valuation of miles — according to the terms and conditions of all three sweepstakes, the approximate retail value of 20,000 United Airlines MileagePlus miles is $400.00; the approximate retail value of 20,000 American Airlines AAdvantage miles is $398.00; and the approximate retail value of 20,000 Alaska Airlines MileagePlan miles is $387.00 — meaning that each MileagePlus mile is worth two cents; each AAdvantage mile is worth 1.99 cents; and each MileagePlan mile is worth 1.935 cents.
