United Months of Miles

Just got an email from United. Apparently 1k miles for completing any 3 partner activities till Nov. 20. The rub is that you can do it again and again.

Anyone thinking what I'm thinking?

$10 minimum on retail purchases, so one itune at a time won't quite do it...

my offer was 1000 miles per two transactions.

I just got it too, but mine is 500 miles for 4 transactions (I'm a 1P). Having a heck of a time finding any T's & C's on this thing.

Where did you see that? I can't find the T&Cs. Also, I was thinking dining.

Yes, I am...

Got the 4 for 500 but a check of the T&C says nothing about doing what I think you're thinking about (and what I am thinking about)...

Same offer.

Could anyone get to the T&C? The link sent me in a loop back to the same page.

3 transactions get 1000 miles...
I can't tell specifically, but does using my MP Visa count as a transaction? It kinda looks like it does, but then this would be far too easy.

At first glance i thought it said 3 transcons gets you 1k miles, which I felt was stupid to send to a midwest based flier. Then I actually read what it said. I still felt stupid, but the mailer made more sense.

I don't see a minimum amount restriction on dining anywhere. Shouldn't be that hard to do $1 each? Problem is that we won't find out till after the promotion.
