4. Mileage accrual process

4.1 As a member of the MileagePlus Program, you will earn MileagePlus award miles from retailers displayed on our Website. We will make every effort to ensure the mileage offers are correctly illustrated.

4.2 You must be signed in to this Website and use our links to the participating retailers' sites to be eligible for miles. You cannot earn miles for purchases that you make prior to signing in the MileagePlus Shopping UK.

4.3 Any goods or services ordered by you give rise to a contractual relationship with the participating retailer and not with us or with MileagePlus. The purchase of goods or services from participating retailers is subject to their terms and conditions of sale. If you have a complaint regarding the goods or services provided to you or regarding any delay or other delivery issue, this is a matter that must be taken up with the retailer in question, not us or MileagePlus. Neither We nor MileagePlus make any warranty with regard to any products or services obtained by you from participating retailers and hereby expressly exclude all representations and warranties including those as to title, fitness for purpose, merchantability and/or satisfactory quality regarding goods and/or services obtained from participating retailers through the MileagePlus Shopping UK Program.

4.4 You become eligible for miles when the participating retailer confirms and approves the purchase. This is something, which is determined entirely by the retailer. Depending on the retailer's returns policy, it takes around 120 days for the purchase to become approved and then miles credited into your account but sometimes it could take longer. Your purchases are subject to the retailers’ terms and conditions.

4.5 If the transaction results in a refund or is cancelled, no miles will be earned.

4.6 Where miles have been posted to your MileagePlus Account, but the transaction is later reversed by the participating retailer or cancelled by you, for whatever reason, miles will be deducted from your MileagePlus Program account. MileagePlus reserves the right to take any and all legal action necessary to collect miles or other amounts owed by you.

4.7 We expressly reserve the right to rescind mileage accrual and to bar further mileage accrual to, or terminate the membership of, any Member that we believe, in our sole discretion, has violated these Terms and Conditions, the MileagePlus Program Terms and Conditions or is or previously has defrauded or otherwise abused the Program or participating retailers, including, without limitation, by engaging in a pattern of returning products after the corresponding miles have been credited, making volume purchases in violation of the spirit of an offer.

4.8 Miles have no equivalent cash value.

4.9 Miles may only be earned on the net value excluding sales tax, all other taxes, surcharges and any additional costs such as shipping.

5. Tracking

5.1 Transactions are electronically tracked and reported back by the participating retailer. We cannot be held responsible if for any reason retailers are not correctly reporting sales to us or reporting back at all.
