I just received an email - spend $250 get 500 miles, max 2500 miles. I note in the Terms and Conditions - "Now through 12/31/12 11:59 PM EST receive 500 bonus miles with every $250 spent online through MileagePlus Shopping; up to 2,500 bonus miles." Oops! I guess they forgot to update it from last year 'Tis the season - seems most shopping malls have bonus promotions right now, or will have through the holidays. I'm making a list and checking it twice - for the maximum bonus with the online shopping portals!
