      Shop with United Airlines MileagePlus award miles

      It’s wonderful when you can apply the MileagePlus® award miles in your account toward a trip that you’ve wanted to take or an event that’s important for you to attend. But you can also use those miles to treat yourself and others to a lot more than travel. For example, you can redeem for name-brand products from companies like Apple®, Bose®, Coach, Garmin®, Keurig®, Michael Kors, Tumi and much, much more.

      You can see all the award items just waiting for you at mileageplus.com/merchandiseawards 

      To start shopping, sign in to your MileagePlus account at the top-right corner of the website. Once you’ve signed in, you’ll see your name and your mileage balance. As you purchase items, your balance will reflect the number of award miles remaining. (Please note that we do not ship to addresses outside the U.S.)

Apple, Callaway® Golf, Canon, Citizen®, Dyson, Keurig, Michael Kors, Ray-Ban® and Toshiba are just a sampling of the brands available to you. Select a logo to access the page featuring awards by that brand.
      If you visit the page often, you can select “New!” to see the most recent items added to our site.
      If you’re looking for an item or category regardless of brand, we’ve got that covered, too. In the Search box located in the upper-left side of the page, enter keywords, select the magnifying glass icon and view results. It’s that easy. What’s great is that you can narrow down your search to correspond to the number of award miles that you have in your account: Choose Search by award miles in the Search box and set a range.

      Whenever you’re looking at a page of awards, whether it’s by category or brand, note that we often have multiple pages of awards. Be sure to view all pages by selecting the page numbers at the top right – so as not to miss anything. Also, when you’re on a category or sub-category page – say, Tablets within Computers & Accessories – you can use the Sort by drop-down menu to show featured items, items by name or items by price.
      Now, choose an award. On the page for that individual award, you can view more detailed information about the product. 
      When you find something you like, press the Buy Now button. You’ll receive an order confirmation by email within 24 hours of placing the order. You can then check the status of your order by selecting the “My Purchases” tab at the top of the page. 

      Buy more miles to get what you want

      What if you have your eye on a specific item but you don’t have enough miles saved up? No problem. You can purchase additional miles by visiting www.ualmiles.com. Personal Miles® cost $35 USD per 1,000 miles with an additional 7.5% excise tax. Note that Personal Miles can take up to 48 hours to appear in your MileagePlus account. 

      MileagePlus Headliners

      If you get a thrill out of online auctions, take advantage of our MileagePlus HeadlinersSM auction program, which lets you bid on unique experiences that we’re continuously updating. Recently, we’ve offered Headliners experiences such as a flight simulator experience in Denver, a trip to the Sochi Olympics including tickets to the Opening Ceremony, an Elton John VIP concert experience in Las Vegas, a private guided tour of the Ferrari factory in Maranello, Italy including business-class airfare, suite nights at sporting events and so much more.

      To access the auctions site, go to mileageplusawards.com/auctions​. You can also access the site by selecting the Auctions tab at the top-right of the MileagePlus Merchandise Awards & Auctions page or by selecting the Auctions menu item at the bottom of the Browse by Category column. Then, go ahead and browse or search for items just like you do with our Merchandise Awards shopping site – using the different options in the left navigation bar. You can also check out Customer Testimonials to see what auction winners are saying about their experiences. 
      Don’t forget to sign in to your MileagePlus account to see all of the auctions available to you.
      Once you select a specific item that’s up for bid, you’ll find all the details related to that item, including description, minimum bid requirements or the current bid, the date the auction ends and a running timer indicating how much time is left for you to submit your bid.
      Miles will be deducted from your MileagePlus account only if you are the winning bidder after an auction closes. 
      If you have award miles in your account, or even if you just want to plan ahead for when you do, go to our MileagePlus® Merchandise Awards & Auctions site and find the perfect gift for yourself or others. Let the shopping – or bidding – begin.
