United is offering a new fall promotion for users to earn up to 1,500 bonus miles when you make purchases through the United MileagePlus Shopping portal.

The Autumn Bounty promotion begins Monday, Oct. 1, and runs through Oct. 15. You'll earn bonus miles, based on how much you spend in the following tiers:

  • Earn 500 bonus miles when you spend $150
  • Earn 1,500 bonus miles when you spend $350

For both tiers, the bonus miles you receive are on top of the miles you'll earn based on each dollar spent with a specific retailer. So if you spend $400 at Sephora, which has an earn rate of 3 miles per dollar spent, you'll get 1,200 miles for spend plus an additional 1,500 miles as part of this fall promotion. In total, you'll get 2,700 United miles, which are worth $38 based on TPG's most recent valuations.

According to the terms and conditions of this promotion, the bonus miles will be awarded based on cumulative spend — it doesn't have to be a single purchase.

Shopping portals are one of the best ways to earn bonus airline miles without actually having to fly. If you know you’ll be making an online purchase, be sure to make it directly through a shopping portal in order to earn the bonus miles.

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.
