United Airlines tweaks frequent flyer program to reward credit card spending
United Airlines has recently announced changes to its MileagePlus perk program that will reward frequent credit card spenders. Specifically, the airline plans to give customers 3 miles per $1 spent on eligible United purchases on their MileagePlus credit card, up from 2 miles per $1. They will also offer 6 miles per $1 spent on hotels booked with the card, up from 5 miles per $1. Additionally, customers can earn bonus miles for meeting targeted spending thresholds, with the potential to earn up to 9 miles per $1 spent. All these changes are meant to incentivize customers to use the MileagePlus card more often, and potentially encourage increased spending. Overall, the new changes should help boost United’s customer loyalty program and make the airline more competitive in the rewards space.
