Terms and Conditions

* For this promotion, only dollars spent on the "fare" on eligible flights operated by United and United Express will qualify toward meeting spending milestones. Certain specialty tickets, including but not limited to unpublished, consolidator/bulk, group, tour and opaque fares, will not be counted towards spending milestones. Dollars spent on tickets purchased for flights operated by a Star Alliance member airline or a MileagePlus partner airline with tickets issued by United (ticket number starting with "016") will not qualify for this offer. The "fare" is the base fare of the ticket plus carrier-imposed surcharges, excluding any government-imposed taxes and surcharges. For tickets purchased in a currency other than U.S. dollars, we will convert the purchase to U.S. dollars using an industry-standard exchange rate. Please note that the price displayed when purchasing a ticket on united.com includes up to a 7.5% U.S. Federal Transportation Tax on the base amount of the fare on itineraries wholly within the United States. This tax also applies to certain itineraries between the United States and Canada or Mexico. The U.S. Federal Transportation tax will not count toward meeting any spending milestone.

** For this promotion, bonus award miles will be awarded for each spending milestone that has been met, subject to the terms and conditions. Milestone bonuses may be earned only once. Partial bonuses will not be awarded for members who don't reach a certain milestone. All calculations made in connection with this offer will be made by United MileagePlus® in its discretion and considered final.

Only original recipients of this email invitation can register and participate in this promotion.
Registration is required by November 15, 2016. Only tickets purchased and ticketed after registration and within the ticketing dates will qualify.
Ticketing and dates: May 25, 2016, through November 30, 2016.
Dollars earned toward this promotion will count as Premier® qualifying dollars toward MileagePlus Premier status qualification, but do not guarantee status. All other qualification requirements must be met for the applicable Premier® status.
This offer is not combinable with other non-combinable offers.
Bonus award miles will post to your account six to eight weeks after the promotion ends on November 30, 2016. Bonus will be calculated using the originally ticketed fares and/or fare classes, as applicable, and subsequent changes to any fares and/or fare classes as a result of itinerary changes, complimentary or paid upgrades, purchase of travel products (including but not limited to United ClubSM, Premier Access®, Award Accelerator®, Premier AcceleratorSM), irregular operations or otherwise will not be considered.

Qualifying for a higher status level than the complimentary status awarded in connection with this offer requires meeting the published qualification thresholds for Premier status.
The complimentary status is valid through January 31, 2017.

Your new benefits will be reflected in your Mileage Plus account once you log in and you may enjoy Premier benefits on United- or United Express-operated flights by providing your account number when making reservations or at check-in.

Offer is subject to change without notice. Other restrictions may apply.

If you received an Economy Plus subscription:

The Economy Plus® subscription can be used only on flights operated by United and United Express in the 48 contiguous U.S. states (excluding Alaska and Hawaii).

I'd do well if it weren't for the fact most of my travel in that period is already booked & paid for. I might have even stretched to hit the $8k offer (as I have ~$7k booked in that timeframe).
Mine were similar to these. I never qualify, so surprised this time. Only heard if offer from FT, UA never can send me an email.

Just got my e-mail. Not much love.

$3000 for 14K
$3500 for 20K
$5500 for 33K

On the bright side, I'll be booking at least 2 and maybe 4 flights during the period in question, so I should meet the second milestone.

UA is doubling down. I just received a similar "Loyalty Promotion" email:
$1,500 and earn 8K bonus miles
$2,000 and earn 12K bonus miles
$3,000 and earn 20K bonus miles

Email also mentioned/reminded about complimentary e plus access at booking and silver status. I might be naive, but between this offer and Oscar's email, I thought why not. So I booked two r/t BusinessFirst PS flights with them for some trips out to the West Coast. I just I wish I had waited for the promotion; would have cleared the top bonus with one of these two purchases and then some. I guess it also shows, at least in my case, that the spend threshold are in no way predicated on spend with other airlines.

That's what I got when I registered for the offer. I'm a CLE based Silver.

Email also mentioned/reminded about complimentary e plus access at booking and silver status.
Say what? They are giving E+ at booking for Silvers now? That would be great news.

Finally got my email after registering - and after all of the other "promotions" lately this really rubs me the wrong way - I've spent $70k YTD... FWIW - I can buy 45k miles for $855 on my upcoming trip to Tokyo this weekend...

Mine was 40K total miles, with way higher spending: 8K miles at $3K spending, 12K more at $3.5K, another 20K miles at $4.5K.

I'm currently platinum, 35K miles so far this year

No email. My offer is

$5000 -> 13,000 RDM
$6000 -> 19,000 RDM
$8000 -> 23,000 RDM

I am currently at 69K PQM & $8.6K PQD. I can hit the first 2 IF I do another trip to Asia. If not, then no bonus for me.

BMW,

Agree 100%. I hope you will see my post in the Status Bump thread. The gist is that United seems to be wasting time and effort on glitzy targeted offers rather than actually fixing what's wrong.

The fact that neither of us (who probably rank among the higher spenders on this forum) is impressed speaks volumes.
