Through a partnership with Vrbo, United Airlines is offering bonus miles for bookings made with the home rental site. There’s also an additional 2,000 Mileage Plus miles thrown in if you book by August 31, 2023, just in time for fall travel.

Here’s everything you need to know about elevated earning rates and bonus United miles on your next Vrbo booking.

Earn 3x United Miles with Vrbo

Only available through the dedicated Vrbo United Airlines website, United MileagePlus members can earn 3x miles per dollar spent on Vrbo bookings.

You must enter your United MileagePlus number at checkout in order to receive your bonus miles. Miles are earned on the rental rate, less any additional taxes or fees, and only on new bookings. You can expect the miles to be deposited into your loyalty account 6 to 8 weeks after completing your stay.

An Extra 2,000 Miles Until August 31

If you hurry and book your stay through the special Vrbo United Airlines website by August 31, 2023, you’ll earn an additional 2,000 MileagePlus miles.

This is a stackable offer. This means that you can earn even more miles when you shop through an online tool like Rakuten. Rakuten currently has a $10 cash-back offer available on Vrbo stays. You can elect to earn 1,000 American Express Membership Rewards points instead.

Although you don’t have to use a United Airlines credit card to make this purchase, you may earn even more at Vrbo with the United Quest℠ Card or the United Club℠ Infinite Card. Each of these cards earns 2x per dollar on all travel purchases.

Vrbo lists more than 2 million homes for rent around the world.

Bottom Line:

You can earn 3x United MileagePlus miles per dollar spent on VRBO bookings when you book through the Vrbo United Airlines website here. Until August 31, you can also earn an additional 2,000 United miles on new Vrbo bookings.

Final Thoughts

Who doesn’t love a way to earn rewards on travel purchases — especially at places that don’t offer “traditional” loyalty programs, such as Vrbo? With United’s current partnership and promotion with the vacation rental platform, there’s an opportunity to earn up to 5x MileagePlus miles (3x + 2x with the right card) per dollar spent, plus an additional 2,000 bonus miles when you book on Vrbo by August 31.
