Milestone 1: spend $1,500 and earn 10,000 bonus award miles
Milestone 2: spend $2,000 total and earn 15,000 more award miles
Milestone 3: spend $3,500 total and earn 25,000 more award miles
Start flying toward your spending milestones.
To be eligible, flights must be purchased after registration and flown before November 30, 2016.
Yeah, my milestone 1 was to spend an additional $10,000 (!) with United...after already spending $12,000 with them so far this year.

No way in hell that is going to happen. You only get rewarded by United when you stop giving them money. That is readily apparent.

The best part? They have termed it a "loyalty promotion"...after demonstrating that loyalty means NOTHING to United. Idiots.
