New for small businesses: Earn MileagePlus miles


UPS's partnership with United Airline's MileagePlus Small Business Network offers new benefits to small businesses.

While you're busy growing your business, the packages you ship through UPS can earn you MileagePlus® award miles toward that getaway vacation you're dreaming about or merchandise you've had your eye on, thanks to a new program for small businesses.

The packages you ship through UPS can earn you airline miles. Find out how.

"We're excited to participate in the MileagePlus Small Business Network," says Tom Langa, a UPS small business marketing manager, "because it gives small businesses an opportunity to earn discounts and miles for many things they already do every day."

The MileagePlus Small Business Network UPS Affinity Program offers award miles from United Airlines and up to 26 percent off standard rates for UPS shipping. Bundling your logistics with UPS has numerous additional advantages, including:

  • Use of free UPS shipping systems that save you time
  • Free tracking technology that improves your customers' experiences
  • Free billing systems that make it easy for you to reconcile invoices
  • One driver to rely on for seamless package pickups and deliveries
