What’s the deal with the United MileagePlus X app?

In our Guide to the American Express Platinum credit card $200 Airline Fee Credit earlier this month, we told you that gift card purchases made recently are now not being reimbursed. Reimbursement for gift cards was never an official card benefit, but was often successful, and then readers began to say it just wasn’t working anymore.

However, dugup46’s reddit post now shows many Platinum cardmembers are shopping on Amazon.com with the MileagePlus X app, where purchase transactions are electronic gift cards, and are being reimbursed the $200 Airline Fee.

The app lets you earn more miles with your everyday purchases at many participating stores and restaurants.

How do I get the United MileagePlus X app deal?

If you have already selected United as your preferred airline with the Amex Platinum card, shop for an Amazon.com gift card here on the MileagePlus X app and hopefully you will be reimbursed too.

What else do I need to know about the United MileagePlus X app deal?

It isn’t guaranteed that you will be reimbursed, as some reddit readers are still waiting for it to show on their statements, but if you’re shopping on the app anyway, it’s worth thinking about.
