Earn 1,000 Bonus MileagePlus Miles When You Spend $350.00

Y ou will earn 1,000 bonus MileagePlus miles when you spend a minimum of $350.00 on qualifying purchases just for shopping for your favorite products at the MileagePlus Shopping portal during the Fall Fun & Sports promotion through Friday, September 9, 2016 at 11:59:59 in the evening Eastern Daylight Time — and those bonus miles you earn are in addition to the standard MileagePlus miles earned from shopping through the MileagePlus Shopping portal.

Earn 1,000 Bonus MileagePlus Miles When You Spend $350.00

The bonus 1,000 MileagePlus miles can only be earned once, as the maximum number of bonus award miles that will be awarded to an eligible MileagePlus Shopping account through the summer bonus campaign is 1,000 bonus award MileagePlus miles.

Bonus MileagePlus miles will be issued based on your cumulative qualifying purchases made during the bonus period. Returns, cancellations, shipping and handling, taxes, gift card or other cash equivalent purchases, and certain products are not included in the bonus award Mileage Plus miles eligibility calculation.

Please allow up to ten weeks after the conclusion of the bonus period for the 1,000 bonus award MileagePlus miles to post to your MileagePlus Shopping account. This offer cannot be combined with other offers or promotions.

Other terms and conditions may apply.

Potential Pitfalls: A Reminder

Cartera Commerce, Incorporated is the company which operates the MileagePlus Shopping portal — as well as powers many of the shopping mall Internet web sites for airlines in addition to that of United Airlines — but the company has not had a perfect record with satisfaction amongst its customers.

Chances are that you will not experience problems with this promotion, as I have not encountered any issues in the few recent transactions which I conducted — but be prepared to expect a less than flawless experience, just in case…

…and also be aware that the bonus award miles you earned may not be added to your account for as many as ten weeks; but if that occurs after the expiration date of the miles in your account, realize that the date of the transaction is what counts and not when the transaction is approved. Even still, you might need to contact the frequent travel loyalty program to alert them — with proof, of course — that the miles in your account should not have expired.

Keep in mind that the only indication that you will be earning bonus miles or points is when you actually click on the link of a participating retailer in a shopping portal, which gives an interim message that you are leaving the shopping portal and that you will earn miles or points. Once you reach the official Internet web site of the merchant, you will not find any evidence that you are actually earning those bonus miles or points when conducting transactions for purchases, requiring a leap of faith on your part.


This offer is almost identical to this one recently offered for this past summer — except that that promotion only required a spend of $250.00, meaning that you have to spend an extra $100.00 in order to earn that same 1,000 bonus MileagePlus miles.

Still, if you intend to spend $250.00 anyway this coming week, you may as well earn 1,000 bonus award MileagePlus frequent flier loyalty miles in the process, which should extend the expiration date of the MileagePlus miles already in your account by another 18 months.
