Great for anyone planning on spending $2500 at MP Dining restaurants over the rest of the year.

I guess I could eat lunch at La Note every day. I'd probably get sick of croque madames.

How badly will UA screw this promo up?

We had "Months of Migraines" and "Map Your Nightmares." Are we now in for "10,000 Miles of Indigestion?"

This is a Rewards Network promo, not an airline specific promo. It is also targeted. Check out the Dining section of Flyertalk. I didn't get one, some speculation on that forum that if you're VIP, you don't get the bonus offer.

I am VIP member in dining program and received the targeted invitation...so must be some other criteria.

I also added some T&Cs to the first post, in case needed for reference.

I found my copy sorted into gmail's spam folder. So if you use gmail check there.

From the email, I initially got excited that it was 10k for every $250 up to 10 times (for 100k for $2500). Then I read it again, and realized it was not. Won't change my eating habits, but I expect I'll probably end up with 1-2k bonus miles from it. I'll definitely try to pick up the cash and put everything on my card when I go to one of these restaurants with friends and split the bill.

Looks like I am not eligible for either. Found the links on TPG. Ineligible for AA or UA.

Just got the 1500 miles per $250. Don't know if I will go out of my way to get it, but might as well rack up any extra.

This promo is doomed. Don't get caught up in - you'll be disappointed when UA doesn't give you your miles...same story, over and over.

this is a rewards network (mileageplus dining) promo and not a UA promo. the miles will post. spend $250 and get your targeted bonus amount (i was offered 1500 miles). i have found rewards network miles post like clockwork.

it wont change my habits either, but i am sure i will spend $250 at participating restaurants in the next two months.
