As they did right around this time last year, United and Gilt Groupe (an online luxury retailer that discounts brand-name designer products) have teamed up to offer MileagePlus members who join Gilt 1,500 bonus 1500 United award miles with their first purchase of $50 or more, and 5 miles for every $1 spent during the first 6 months of membership.

Gilt United

Though it says the offer is only valid for new Gilt Groupe members, I was able to join with an email address that I don’t already use with them and entered my United MileagePlus number without an issue, so we’ll see if the miles post, but can’t hurt to try!

Gilt also participates in several airline and hotel shopping portals, and right now you can earn 4 Marriott Rewards points, 2 Ultimate Rewards, 2 American miles or 2 Hilton HHonors points when redirecting to the site through one of those portals.
