School Bonus

Parents shelling out dollars to their kid’s school can rack up some serious miles this fall. The “United Mileage Plus VISA” is offering two miles for every dollar spent that exceeds $1,000 and is paid directly to schools through the end of this year. This includes tuition for colleges and universities, as well as public and private elementary and secondary schools, school bookstore purchases, season football tickets, school donations and more. For example, parents of college students can earn 25,000 United miles for $12,500 in purchases, enough for a free round trip domestic ticket. The “United Mileage Plus VISA,” issued by Chase, is also offering extra bonus miles though September 30th for back-to-school purchases from Office Max, Banana Republic/Gap/Old Navy, IKEA and Borders.
