It’s a good time to be a MileagePlus member: Earn up to 1,500 bonus miles by shopping through the MileagePlus Shopping mall. This promotion ends on Oct. 15, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern.

To get the bonus miles

You can only receive one of the bonus amounts one time. While this offer isn’t landmark, it’s still a way to earn bonus points that can help you get to your next trip sooner. So if you already have a big purchase in mind, see if you can purchase it through the MileagePlus Shopping mall.

Another way to earn more MileagePlus miles is with a travel credit card, like the United℠ Explorer Card, which rewards cardholders with 2 MileagePlus miles per dollar spent on United purchases, 2 miles per dollar spent on restaurant purchases and hotel stays, and 1 mile per dollar spent on everything else.
