What’s the deal with United MileagePlus?

New customers who are MileagePlus credit cardholders can earn 12,500 bonus MileagePlus – and hopefully save dollars on utility bills too – by changing energy suppliers.

NRG Home has offers for residents of Massachusetts and Illinois, where you earn 10,000 MileagePlus after your second month as an NRG Home customer, but if you own a MileagePlus credit card, you get an extra 2,500 miles – totaling 12,500 bonus miles. Customers also earn MileagePlus award miles every month.

NRG serves the following areas, so you may be able to get the offer elsewhere too – there’s no harm in calling to ask:

  • Connecticut
  • Delaware
  • District Of Columbia
  • Illinois
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • New Jersey
  • New York
  • Ohio
  • Pennsylvania

United MileagePlus

Energy Plus is also offering 12,500 bonus MileagePlus with the same format – earn 10,000 MileagePlus after your second month, but MileagePlus credit cardmembers get an extra 2,500 miles, and you earn MileagePlus award miles every month.

Residents of these areas are served by Energy Plus and are eligible for the bonus:

  • Illinois
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • New Jersey
  • New York
  • Ohio
  • Pennsylvania

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

Check out the T&C carefully and compare prices before deciding to switch. If it means you get a better deal, then the bonus miles are a nice sweetener, but it won’t be worth it to switch simply for the miles.
