The holiday season is upon us, and for some of us, that means shipping out gifts or merchandise to both loved ones and customers. This recent promotion from United Airlines’s Small Business Network and UPS caught my eye: Triple miles on all UPS shipments this month, along with 600 bonus United miles!
The offer’s highlights:
- Save up to 26% on UPS shipping prices through this program.
- Earn 3 miles per $1 spent on all UPS shipments on your account for any shipments made now through November 30th. (This is not including the base miles/points you would earn when you pay with your favorite miles-earning card.)
- Earn a bonus 100 United miles after your first shipment is completed anytime within 6 months of program enrollment.
- Earn another bonus 500 United miles after your fifth shipment is completed anytime within 6 months of program enrollment.
You can enroll for the program here. It will require you to log into your United Airlines Small Business Network account. If you don’t have one yet, just create a new one for free.
Even if you aren’t planning on shipping out five packages in November alone, you still have 6 months from when you enroll in the program to ship out that fifth package in order to qualify for the bonus United miles. Granted, 600 United miles these days are only worth about $12 (about 2 cents each)–but if you are planning on shipping anyway, this might be a nice little bonus for you.
Or maybe you can find an excuse to ship things out. Perhaps offer to one of your family members, friends, or bosses to ship out some things for them on their behalf. Get creative.
