Earn 2,500 United Mileage Plus miles per stay through June 30, 2010 in 19 cities with Red Lion Hotels in the western states. There are 44 Red Lion Hotels and at least half are participating in this bonus miles promotion. Portland, Spokane, and Seattle have multiple properties if you feel like mattress running for miles.
The Mileage Plus promotion lists only 18 cities for participating Red Lion Hotels, so I assume one city in some state has been left out. Come on you United Express aficionados, which city is missing?

It’s easy to earn 2,500 miles
Here’s what you have to do to get bonus miles:
- Join the Red Lion R&R Club
- Select the “500 air miles per stay” and “United Mileage Plus” radial buttons and enter your Mileage Plus account number when you set your Red Lion R&R Club settings.
- Reserve a room, go to www.redlion.com and use the promotion code UNITED.
You’ll earn the usual 500 miles per stay, plus an additional 2,000 bonus miles for a limited time.
I haven’t looked closely at the Red Lion loyalty program in the past couple years. There are some good benefits if you are a west coast traveler.
For example, Red Lion R&R Platinum members (25 nights) earn both points and miles for hotel stays. Platinum members earn 15 points per $1 and a free night is only 10,000 points at any Red Lion Hotel. That is one free night for every $667 in hotel spend. Not bad.
