TODAY ONLY: 15 Miles Per Dollar At 15 Stores From United Mileage Plus

I’m liking these 15X “flash sale” mileage offers.  Mommy Points reports on the list of merchants who are offering 15 miles per dollar.  It’s a pretty mainstream list, a lot of folks should have opportunities to take advantage of this for normal purchases:

 

  • eBags
  • Old Navy
  • Banana Republic
  • Groupon
  • Neiman Marcus
  • Nike
  • Shoebuy
  • Coach
  • Under Armour
  • Sunglass Hut
  • Rosetta Stone
  • H&R Block
  • Sleepy’s
  • Saks OFF Fifth
  • Lord & Taylor
Let’s Think About The Math For A Minute

Everyone has different values for their miles.  Some people don’t even really think how much their worth.  It seems like not a day goes by where I don’t tell someone miles are currency.  Just like dollars, pesos, Euro.  For easy math, let’s just say a United MileagePlus mile is worth 2 cents.  Some might argue it’s a bit lower, but let’s use a round number.

That means for every dollar you normally spend at one of these merchants (if they offered 1 mile per dollar), you get a 2 cent “rebate”.  Now, do the math on 15 miles per dollar.  If you can use the miles for award tickets, you’re getting a ridiculous 30% rebate on your spending.  Even if you only thought United Miles were worth a penny a piece, that’s still a 15% rebate on your spending.

Folks who don’t travel for a living need to leverage opportunities like this.  Especially if you’re trying to fly a family of 3 or 4 to Europe for a summer vacation, bonus opportunities are where you can stack up miles in big chunks.

Most of these merchants pay 2, 3 or 4 miles per dollar on a “normal” day through the shopping portals.  Getting 5 or 6 times as many miles is a rare treat.

If you’ve got some shopping at these merchants, today is the day to do it.
