X and Shopping are two different things

For UA Shopping, does using a registered credit card in store count towards the MilePlay requirement?

I started to make some bookings in line with my offer, including for late May travel. Then even paid F on the dates I was looking at came in about $5 less (before taxes) than the threshold for my offer, and I shrugged, said, "Y is $100 on this route, PZ is available, and why again will I book 4x $250 tickets just to get 5k RDM?"

I suppose if I cancel and refare my May Japan trip (it's now selling for $1.2k less than I paid for it, with PZ outbound and I'm expecting PZ to open on the return in a couple of days--if PZ is there for both, I'll likely cancel and rebook to recoup the big savings in fare), I'll revisit since I'd have 1x of the 4 booked, and still have 2x more flights yet to book in the promo period. Probably not the behavior UA would want to incentivize, though...
