United and Priority Club (Very Modest) Online Shopping Bonuses

It’s not just US Airways jumping on the mileage mall bonus train, United and Priority Club are offering bonuses, too. Though they aren’t as lucrative as what US Airways has come out with.

Priority Club is offering 1000 bonus points if you spend between $100 and $500, 1500 bonus points if you spend between $500 and $1000, and 2500 bonus points if you spend $1000 or more at their retail partners through the Priority Club shopping mall by September 7. For a $100 purchase that’s a bonus 10 points per dollar, not bad. If you spend $500 it’s a bonus 3 points per dollar. “Meh.” And of course you don’t get any incremental bonus for spending more than the minimum for each level while not reaching the next bonus level. Plus of course the most points you can earn from the offer is 2500… which in Priority Club-land isn’t very many.

United’s Mileage Plus mall will give you 1000 bonus miles for $500 or more in qualifying spend with their retail partners by September 10. Woo hoo!

Neither of these offers require registration, and neither is all that lucrative. But if you happen to be making purchases online anyway, they can add to the kitty.
