United MileagePlus shopping has been running a back-to-school shopping promotion where the more you spend thru the MileagePlus shopping home, the more bonus miles you can earn – up to 2,000 bonus miles.
From the terms and conditions:
*7/14/14 through 8/31/14 11:59 PM ET receive 500 bonus miles with every $125 spent online through MileagePlus Shopping; up to 2,000 bonus miles. Returns, shipping and taxes are not eligible for bonus. Please allow 8-10 weeks for bonus miles to post to your account. The maximum number of bonus miles that can be awarded to each qualifying member through this promotion is 2,000 bonus miles. This offer cannot be combined with other bonus offers. Increased earning opportunities are for a limited time only and at the discretion of each individual merchant. Please check site daily for updates to increased earning opportunities.
While this isn’t an amazing points promotion, it is a good way to get a few hundred to a few thousand extra MileagePlus miles, especially if you were planning on doing some internet shopping this week at their participating on-line retailers.
