United Airlines announced the launch of the MileagePlus Small Business Network, a program that allows business to earn and redeem miles.  Participating business can earn miles by purchasing goods and services from various vendor partners of the program, which include printing, shipping, credit card payment processing, office supplies, and computing services providers.

Business can use their miles on a variety of options, including purchasing travel awards and upgrades, bidding on experiences through the MileagePlus Headliners auction program, and shopping for merchandise, dining awards, and newspaper and magazine subscriptions.

In addition, businesses can also buy, transfer, or gift their miles, as well as donate their miles to a MileagePlus charity partner.

With the start of the MileagePlus Small Business Network, United is offering a bonus to participating businesses. New members that conduct transactions that earn a minimum of 100 miles will receive 1,000 bonus miles.
