8 miles per dollar on Apple at United MileagePlus Shopping


On the heels of yesterday’s 4x Apple promotion at the American Airlines shopping portal, today brings an even better payout at 8 miles per dollar at the United MileagePlus Shopping portal!

UA Apple 8x

Note the portal terms for Apple purchases, bolding mine for emphasis:

Not eligible on purchases made with coupon or discount codes that are not found on this site. Not eligible on gift cards, gift certificates or any other similar cash equivalents. Rewards are issued by this site, not Apple. Apple AirPods are not eligible for reward. Newly released products may not be eligible for reward. Additional products not eligible for rewards are gift cards, gift wrap, One to One Membership, Bose products, and shipping. Apple sells and ships products to end user customers only; you may not purchase for resale. Eligible only to a customer for up to five (5) units per eligible product, except iPhone, in which case only two (2) units within a thirty-day (30-day) period are eligible.

I do not know what constitutes a “newly released product”.  Take this into consideration when planning your purchase.

If you do have plans to make a purchase, today is a good day to do it. According to Cashbackmonitor, this is double the highest mileage payout in the past 15 months:

My guess for the newly released product is any product that was released in the last 90 days or less.


Normally when they release a new phone, etc it’s not eligible until stock levels meet demand. In the past the T&C said specific things like “Not eligible on iPhone 7” for example.
