One of the best ways to earn additional miles quickly is through the MileagePlus X app. I usually forget but when you have a chance to check it before purchases it can of great Value especially when you combine it with the United Mileage Plus Explorer Card.
If you are already a MileagePlus Explorer card holder you can receive an additional 25% on your purchase.
Once you have purchased the gift card and use it in store you can achieve your bonus but for a triple dip you can use your gift card on the retailers website through the MileagePlus shopping portal.
Examples Below give you the run through: Recently my Wife and I needed new running shoes and found a great deal at Footlocker!
- Purchase Gift card on Portal $100 Footlocker 500 miles + 25%
- 100 miles on Credit Card Purchase
- Through United Mileage Plus Shopping Portal you earn 1x points for purchase 100 miles
So for a $100 transaction you can score 825 miles!
During many holidays and specials the bonuses within the Mileage X app can be over 10x the points!
This is a great way to boost your United Mileages with normal purchases!
