The United MileagePlus Shopping Portal is currently offering 6 bonus points per dollar at Staples for United cardholders only (3X for others). They also have JC Penney at 9X, but that (to me) is less exciting)…
Of course, since this is an office supply store, you can pay with a Chase Ink card and earn an additional 5 points per dollar for a total of 11X! To earn even more than 11X, buy e-gift cards to other merchants, then go through a portal to that merchant and buy stuff using those gift cards!
- You do not have to pay with a United credit card to get the 6X points, but you do need to be a cardholder to get this offer
- If you purchase Visa gift cards or Staples gift cards you most likely will not earn portal points. In my recent experience, though, gift cards to other merchants (Sears, Whole Foods, etc.) do earn points.
- It can take anywhere from days to weeks for points to show up from portal purchases.
