Earn Extra Miles With The United MileagePlus X App

MileagePlus X is a great way to earn extra United miles while you shop. Install the app on your phone then use it to find participating shops and restaurants. Enter your total purchase amount at the register then let the cashier scan the barcode generated in the app. You can easily earn an extra 3-5 miles per dollar spent.


The best way to search for a merchant is by location. Here, you can see nearby merchants that participate in the program.

One surprise participant is Amazon.com. If you were to go through the MileagePlus Shopping portal, you’d see that they are not a part of the program. We love shopping with Amazon and even getting just half a mile per dollar of spend is better than nothing (if you choose to bank miles with United that is – jetBlue actually provides 3x points for shopping at Amazon).

Consider using these credit cards with the app to bank more MileagePlus miles.  More info and links to download the app can be found here.
