Valentine’s Day is coming up and with it, we are starting to see promotions pop up for extra bonus miles. Right now, if you go through the United MileagePlus Shopping site and spend $200 or more, you will earn 500 bonus award miles. United has over 900 shopping partners including Target, Walmart, Apple, and Sam’s Club so you can even use this promotion on everyday purchases.

Earn Extra Miles With These Retailers

There are even a few retailers who are giving out extra miles per dollar spent over what is usually offered. These are just a few that caught my eye:

  • The Body Shop – 12 miles per dollar (regularly 2 per dollar)
  • Oakley – 10 miles per dollar (regularly 2 per dollar)
  • Bloomingdales – 2 miles per dollar (regularly .5 per dollar)

Promotions like these are one of the best ways to earn miles without flying. It’s even better if you can figure out a way to add value to the purchases you are already making.

Where will you shop to take advantage of this promotion?
