Aside that these are a terrible use of miles (typically 0.3 cents per mile), there are certain T&Cs restrictions
-- are you purchasing from a USA location? Not outside the USA?
-- No other items purchased with miles the same day?

Full T&Cs link at the bottom of https://giftcards.mileageplus.com/

I am in the USA.
No, I am making a purchase for the first time.

Are you a premier? I think (and I could be remembering incorrectly), that at least at one point, gift cards with miles were only available for Premiers go purchase.

otherwise, could just be the standard Ua.com error.

I have been redeeming for gift cards with no issues other than being limited to one card per day.

I am aware that it is a pretty awful use of miles, but I have more than I will ever use and on the verge of retirement,with little future travel, so routine expenses are a priority.
