Via The Points Guy, you can easily earn 1,500 miles + 5 miles per dollar spent with a new account and any purchase at the Gilt Groupe. You just have to sign up through this United link with either your United MileagePlus or Continental OnePass numbers. Hint: If you have multiple emails and both membership numbers, you should be able to sign up and get the 1,500 mile bonus twice.
Gilt has a bunch of different sub-sites that suit a lot of tastes from high end clothing to dining to travel to general shopping. Personally, I went for the cheapest item I could find which is the Sushi Mat from Food Connect, Inc. for $2.95. To find this item, once you sign into Gilt.com, navigate the top menu to Taste and then click Equipment. Scroll down and you’ll find the sushi mat. Shipping was $5.95 so I will earn 1,515 miles for a grand total of $8.90. A very fine rate of 0.6 CPM (Cents Per Mile)!
Going forward, you’ll earn 5 miles per dollar spent at Gilt for the first 6 months after this new registration. That’s not bad so you should definitely add it to your list for some holiday shopping and then some.
