United at NewarkShop with United Miles at Newark Liberty this Holiday Season
Flying through Newark Liberty this holiday season? If you’re a United MileagePlus member, you can take care of some last-minute shopping with your miles at United’s novel Miles Shop, a real-life, brick-and-mortar store in which you can purchase items using the balance in your frequent flyer account.

As written by USA Today, the Miles Shop is located in Newark Terminal C and it “carries gifts, electronics, suitcases, books, traveler essentials, such as power adapters and travel guides, and children’s toys and clothing.” Among the examples of items for sale:

  • Apple power adapters — 9,800 miles
  • New York Times travel guides — 4,900 miles
  • Samsung headphones — 10,000 miles and up


Read more about the shop, which is meant to be temporary but may stick around after the holidays, here, and for more travel gift ideas, read my post here.
