Is your United MileagePlus account looking a little empty? Check out this promotion through the United MileagePlus Shopping portal, giving you an opportunity to earn an incredible 45 miles per dollar spent on magazines (that’s 2.22 cents per mile). At this rate, it’d take just $1,278 of magazine subscriptions (equal to roughly 47 subscriptions to People magazine) to earn the 57,500 miles required to fly business class across the Atlantic. This represents a significant savings considering the cash price for a one-way fare between Newark (EWR) and Paris (CDG) will set you back a jaw-dropping $7,600.

Act quickly to get 45 miles per dollar when you buy magazines.

While it’s not always the case with shopping portals, you can couple discount coupons with this promo, including a savings of $5 today only when you use the code COLUMBUS and a “surprise sale,” also for today only, when you use the code SURPRISEME. If you don’t want to hoard magazine subscriptions, you can donate them to local businesses such as hospitals, medical offices or schools, while still earning the huge mileage bonus. Act quickly if you’re interested in taking advantage of this deal — we don’t think it’s going to be around for long.
