United has launched a new promotion for its United MileagePlus shopping portal. The deal can net you up to 1,000 bonus miles on purchases through one of the shopping portal's 850+ partners.

The promotion begins today and runs through June 24. You'll earn miles at the following tiers:

  • Earn 500 bonus miles after spending $125
  • Earn 1,000 bonus miles after spending $150

The bonus is on top of the normal miles you'll earn for for shopping through the United portal. So if you spent $200 at Banana Republic, which currently has an earn rate of 2 miles per dollar spent, you'd earn 400 miles for the purchase plus the additional 1,000 bonus miles for a grand total of 1,400 miles.

Note that you don't need to make a single purchase of $125 or $150 to earn the bonus miles; you could make two separate $80 purchases from different stores and still qualify for the bonus.

Even with the bonus miles from United, it could still make sense to go through a separate shopping portal. You can use a shopping portal aggregator to compare the earn rates of stores. And don't forgot to maximize your purchase by using a credit card that earns the most points on non-category bonus spend.

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
