Earn up to 10X Points with United MileagePlus X App
United MileagePlus X is an app which lets you purchase digital gift cards at hundreds of retailers. You buy the gift card with a credit card and pay the merchant with the gift card. The app will give you bonus United miles on top of the normal credit card points you earn. United is increasing the bonus offer to up to 10X miles per $1 for Black Friday-Cyber Monday.
You could just buy gift cards and save them for future purchases. Some of the 10X merchants include Athleta, Banana Republic, Dave and Buster’s, Dominos, Gap, Nike, Old Navy, and Regal Entertainment. You’ll earn an additional 25% bonus points if you have a United credit card saved to your United account (you don’t need to pay with the United card to get the 25% bonus).
