  • Offer apparently targeted at UA elites who flew US last year and credited miles to MileagePlus (possibly targeted only at those who bought premium tickets on US and credited to MP). You can only register for a promotion for which you were targeted, so this will only help if you were targeted but for some reason didn't get or lost the email.
  • No offer for people whose primary address is non-US
  • 4 RPU + 4 UC passes

  • Some 1Ks get 4 RPUs + 20K PQM
    http://news.united.com/servlet/formlink/f?JHQSTCTY
  • Some 1Ks get 4 RPUs only, no PQM

Someone phishing for your MP #? This does not sound like something the current UA would do...

be cautious!
copy the offer code and then go on the UA web site (deals and offers page) and enter the code in the registration blank box.

DO NOT click on a link in the email.

Got this too (sightly modified) with no PQM's just the RPU's, very legit. Good to see maybe they realize that people really ARE leaving.

Why not? They have all sorts of marketing efforts.

It sure would be nice if someone would share the offer code, or perhaps info on status etc

Hopefully instead, a positive marketing effort of some sort (although I don't want to make 1K too easy for people!)

PS: You did well on your 2013 upgrades - based on your stats
