Before you go out to purchase items you need right away or use your card at a restaurant, check the points earned in eGift cards in the United MileagePlus X app.
Of course, AMC theaters or digital content (Apple Gift Card, Google Play, Nintendo eShop, etc.), and Airbnb, Uber gift cards are also available.
However, before use, in the case of restaurants, the Amex Gold Card earns 4x restaurant points, and Chase Freedom Unlimited, Chase Freedom Flex, and Sapphire Reserve earn 3x at restaurants. If you have the card, if it is 3 times or less in the MileagePlus X app, it means nothing unless you need UA miles right away.
It is, of course, a very convenient way to gift someone.
For example, if you are shopping for TJ Maxx and choose the product you want and there is little chance of return, do not hesitate to open the United MileagePlus X app and purchase a TJ Maxx eGift Card. Choose an amount that is slightly less than that amount.
This is because if you continue to purchase gift cards that are a good deal, you may not be able to use them because you do not have a chance to actually use them, or you may forget to use them.
In addition, as online crime continues to increase, it has become common for gift card balances to disappear one day.
In the case of the TJ Maxx eGift Card, 5 times the amount of miles is accumulated. As soon as you make a purchase, 5x the miles will appear directly in your UA account.
If you are actually planning a trip and you are short of UA miles, the MileagePlus Shopping or MileagePlus Dining programs usually take 2 or 3 days to accumulate after the credit card amount is posted. When you need miles, eGift Cards are the best choice.
To use the eGift card, open the e-mail you received on your smartphone at the counter, click the gift card link, show the barcode to the cashier, scan it, and tell the pin number, and you are done.
