United Airlines shopping portal is offering a one day increased offer where you can earn 15x points by shopping online at select merchants. This is very similar to the Alaska Airlines promotions I wrote about a few days ago, but this time you are earning miles with United Airlines. This offer is valid for all purchases made TODAY ONLY through 11:59pm ET January 22, 2017. To earn the bonus points, all you have to do is start at the United Airlines shopping portal first BEFORE you go straight to the participating merchant. It literally takes an extra few seconds.

- Saks OFF Fifth
- Lord & Taylor
The best part of this promotion is that Neiman Marcus is a participating merchant, again! This is great is because Neiman Marcus has an awesome Amex Offer where you can earn a $50 statement credit with a $200+ purchase. While there is no guarantee that gift card purchases will work, it is definitely worth a try. A $200 purchase will get you 3,000 United Airline miles which is pretty awesome! You can learn more about this Amex Offer here and here.
What is an online shopping portal?
For those not familiar with an online shopping portal, essentially you go through the shopping portal first (in this case United Airlines), search for your online merchant, and you’ll then be taken directly to that merchants online website. At that point, you’ll shop how you normally would as if you went to the merchants site to begin with. It literally takes an extra minute and allows you to earn points or miles on the way. The bonus described above is for cumulative spend and doesn’t need to be in a single transaction.
Enjoy your bonus points!
