Receive 1,000 United Miles with Shopping Assistant Toolbar
Yep, you will receive 1,000 United MileagePlus miles when you download their Shopping Assistant toolbar.
What’s a Shopping Assistant toolbar? Great question. It sounds like a device my wife would use to hit me with when I’m on my iPhone while we’re shopping. Well, it isn’t. It’s pretty much a search application that is added to the top of your internet browser.
You will earn miles for searches and purchases made through the toolbar. These toolbars are usually an eye sore, so I always end up deleting them once I get my bonus miles, but you can nickel and dime yourself some United miles by using it. You will receive 1 United mile for every 3 searches. Ehhh.
Also, special United offers will pop up from time to time during your searches… not sure how “special” these offers really are.
But all you have to do to receive the 1,000 United miles is download the Shopping Assistant toolbar and perform 1 search. Easy.
The T&Cs are:
- bonus is valid for initial install and download of Shopping Assistant
- offer expires October 31, 2012
- you must be signed into your United account to download & install Shopping Assistant
- System browser requirement are: E 7+, Firefox 5+, Google Chrome 11+ and Safari 5.x+ on Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Mac OS X
In the end, this is an EASY 1,000 United miles. I cherish my United miles, because they are my preferred currency to get over to Europe. Also, since United is a transfer partner of Ultimate Rewards, I can top off my United account with my Ink Bold® Charge Card and Chase Sapphire Preferred.
I’ve also recently added to my United stash by signing up for Netflix (again) for another 4,000 miles. I’m in straight replenish mode since I just burned a wad of United miles on a trip to Europe last month and an upcoming trip to Thailand. Every mile counts!
