United Airlines announced Thursday that it relaunched the United MileagePlus X app, which offers members a unique opportunity to earn award miles for everyday purchases.

“We are excited to launch the new MileagePlus X app, which allows MileagePlus members to earn and redeem award miles in real time for their everyday purchases at hundreds of merchants across the U.S, matching the increased benefits our United Explorer Cardmembers received with the new credit card last summer,” United vice president Luc Bondar said in a statement.

“As mobile payments become more commonplace, it was a natural tie for United to update the features, enable members to make purchases and earn and use miles on the go,” Bondar added.

Other enhancements to the app include the integration of the existing MileagePlus Dining and MileagePlus Shopping programs, as well as the addition of the aforementioned United Visa Rewards program.

Through the MileagePlus X app, members can purchase eGift Cards from hundreds of restaurants and retailers. In addition, primary United Chase Cardmembers earn a 25 percent bonus on miles earned from MileagePlus on eGift Card purchases made through the app.

“Visa and United have been working together for over 20 years,” Visa senior vice president Terry Angelos said. “As digitally-savvy individuals continue to help shape the future of digital commerce, Visa continues to work with United and Chase to bring new ways to reward consumers for their loyalty. At the same time, participating merchants will benefit from Visa Commerce Network’s ability to deliver custom solutions that will help increase their customer base and loyalty, ultimately helping them continue to grow their business.”
