United offers for shopping online?

Has anyone seen any current offers from United shopping portal for bonus miles when using their portal. It seems for a while whenever American did it, the United followed closely.

They had a number of specials right around Christmas and New Years, but I haven't seen any new ones since then.

Interesting timing - this morning I had a 500-mile bonus offer in my inbox: Spend $200 by May 26.

They tend to come around certain events. Back to school, Christmas, etc. Most of the ones lately have been pretty low-ball.

AA and UA both use Rewards Network - explains why the offers are similar if not identical.

ebags is currently at 15 miles for every $1, which is about the highest I have seen it - Usually 6 or so. I have purchased from them many times with out issue. Great if you need to pick up some luggage.

Macys is at 8 miles for every $1.

I have also been pleasantly surprised with the Shopping portal of late. It now shows a history of what sites you visited, and if you made a purchase. Also getting emails promptly after a transaction, confirming the miles are coming.

Seems much more reliable than in the past.

+1. The posting of miles seems to be much more timely now as well.
