Earn 500 Bonus MileagePlus Miles by Shopping May 2018 — Plus…

Effective through Thursday, May 24, 2018 at 11:59:59 in the evening Eastern Daylight Time, you can earn 500 bonus United Airlines MileagePlus miles — in addition to the standard MileagePlus miles earned — when you spend a minimum of $200.00 shopping during the Treat Yourself Bonus campaign at the MileagePlus Shopping portal by spending the following minimum amounts of money for shopping for qualifying purchases on your favorite products from hundreds of participating retailers.

Earn 500 Bonus MileagePlus Miles by Shopping May 2018 — Plus…

New to this type of offer is that you can earn an extra 100 bonus MileagePlus miles when you spend a minimum of $50.00 at each of two featured stores: eBags and Kohl’s.

You can only earn the bonus of 500 MileagePlus miles once, as the maximum number of bonus award points that will be awarded to an eligible MileagePlus Shopping account through the Treat Yourself Bonus campaign is 500 bonus award 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 MileagePlus miles eligibility calculation.

Please allow up to ten weeks after the conclusion of the bonus period for the 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.


similar offer is available with the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan shopping portal — except that the two featured stores are Macy’s and Kohl’s. This offer expires on Wednesday, May 16, 2018….

…and a similar offer is also available with the American Airlines AAdvantage shopping portal — except that you earn 400 miles instead of 500 miles; and the two featured stores are Pier One Imports and Kohl’s. This offer also expires on Wednesday, May 16, 2018.

Be aware that the adding of MileagePlus miles to your account as a result of participating in this promotion can take as many as ten weeks; but if that happens after the expiration date of the miles in your account, take consolation of knowing that the date of the transaction is typically what counts and not when the transaction is approved. You may need to take the time to send reminders to the administrators of a shopping portal if your miles or points do not post; and if that is not worth your time or effort, you might want to reconsider participating in one of these promotions…

…but if you intend to spend money shopping anyway before the promotion ends, you may as well earn MileagePlus miles in the process.
