United also offers MileagePlus Headliners, a unique program that lets members use their award miles to purchase theater and sporting event tickets and bid on a variety of amazing experiences. In addition, customers can visit the MileagePlus Digital Media Store. A first of its kind in the airline industry, the Digital Media Store gives MileagePlus members the opportunity to use miles for songs, albums, television shows and movies.
