United is running a promotion with their online shopping portal where you can earn up to 1,000 miles by taking an extra minute and finding your online retailer through their site first. The spend to earn these miles is really low as well, so earning these miles should be relatively easy. This promotion runs through January 6, 2017.
For those not familiar with an online shopping portal, essentially you go through the shopping portal first (in this case United’s), 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!
