Have your eye on a transatlantic business-class United flight but don’t have the 57,500 miles required to pull the trigger? Well, it’s your lucky day — through MileagePlus Shopping you can fly to Europe with a flat-bed seat for the low low price of just 37 one-year subscriptions to Us Weekly magazine!

That’s right — you can currently earn 45 miles for every dollar you spend at Magazines.com. If you don’t have a United co-brand card, such as the MileagePlus Explorer Card, you’ll earn 40 points per dollar instead. This offer is available today, tomorrow and again on Friday (like the rest of us, it’s taking Thanksgiving off).

And, through the end of today, you’ll earn up to 6,000 additional miles when you reach certain thresholds. $1,250 is a TON to spend on magazines alone, but the MileagePlus Shopping site will tally your earnings from all merchants, making that bonus much easier to attain.

I’ve taken advantage of similar offers in the past, opting to purchase magazines for a local hospital — you can do the same by simply entering the mailing address for a hospital, nursing home or another business in need instead of having them shipped to yourself (unless you want the magazines, of course).
