Mileage Plus Dining and Mall- Anyone Use Them?

Jump to last reply

Just out of curiosity, does anyone use United's Mileage Plus dining program or their Mileage Plus Mall? American Airlines has the exact same programs in place, but I, for whatever reason, use United. Incidentally, you can shop in either mall, but you can't be registered for both of their dining programs since they use the same rewards network to track your earning.

In my opinion, the dining one is a no-brainer since it's free and they keep track of everything after you register your debit or credit cards with them. I also like how you could potentially earn miles without even knowing the restaurant is a member of the program, if you're out of town, for example. But with the mall, you have to be a little more cognizant of what you're doing and log-in with your mileage number and then click through to the online sites to get credit for shopping. Still, it's a great opportunity to earn more miles if you're going to be shopping online anyway.

Last year, I earned almost 10,000 miles in the dining program alone, so I think it's a great way to improve your mileage account balance, and also avoid those pesky 18-month expiration limits some have set in place. Plus, you can double-dip a bit if you have an airline-affiliated debit or credit card (i.e. earn miles through the rewards program and also via your affiliated card that you've registered).

Anyone else like/dislike either of these programs, or do you use something else that's similiar and beneficial?
