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 Certain specialty tickets, including but not limited to unpublished, consolidator/bulk, group, tour and opaque fares, will not be counted towards spending milestones.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.

i usually don't get these promotions and it's funny that i booked about $5,000 in flights just a little bit over 24 hours ago but my promotion is below. I'm currently a 1K who has requalified for 2017 with >20K spend in 2016.

$8,500>37,000 RDM
$10,500>56,000 RDM
$16,000>93,000 RDM

No offense to you, but that makes me a bit angry...

I (also 1K) got:
$7,500- 10,000 bonus award miles
$8,000- 15,000 more award miles
$9,500- 25,000 more award miles

So, I need to spend more money, to get substantially fewer miles :roll eyes:.

Not necessarily against the promotion, but the execution is pretty terrible... United.

$2000 - 10,000
$2500 - 15,000
$4000 - 25,000

I don't fly that much for work any more and certainly don't concentrate on UA, but I should hit the $2500 mark in July without too much trouble.

Stinks that stuff booked *before* signing up for the promotion don't qualify even though we fly after. Any way around that?

$5500 - 9,000
$6000 - 13,000
$6500 - 21,000

I'm moved over to AA, so won't be taking advantage of this.

In total that's 43,000 miles for $6500 = 15 cpm.

Did not receive offer & not eligible when I entered my MP number.

Of course, I have purchased almost all of my commuting fights for this year and they can probably see that.

+1

United wants me to spend $10,000 more dollars with them after a major devaluing of my earned 1K status?

And after booking ~$12,000 already this year?

Someone on Wacker is smoking some serious weed.

$10,000 = 21,000 miles
$11,500 = 31,000 miles
$14,000 = 52,000 miles

If United thinks they are getting $26K from me after kicking me in the teeth, they are really, really, high.

All over the map.

Mine are:

Milestone 1: spend $2,000 and earn 12,000 bonus award miles
Milestone 2: spend $2,500 total and earn 17,000 more award miles
Milestone 3: spend $4,000 total and earn 28,000 more award miles

This is the first offer for anything other than junk and buying miles that I've ever received since the Smisek/Continental takeover in 2012 and seems a clear and strong indicator that Munoz is trying to actually do something.

Interesting also to see the bonus tied to dollars, not miles flown.

However, I was excluded from the status upgrade, as expected.

My offer is

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

Thought it was bad till I read this thread. Interestingly I have a really poor spend to EQM ratio. Currently at $1900 spend with 32k+ EQM. Perhaps targeting people who are frequent flyers on "good deal" tickets? I made Plat last year (and plan to again this year) solely because of cc waiver.

No email but this is my offer...

1 - $1,500 Earn 8,000 bonus award miles
2 - $2,000 Earn 12,000 more bonus award miles
3 - $3,000 Earn 20,000 more bonus award miles

As usual, UA gives the best offers to those with no/low status.

I keep my PQD under $1500 for the year so there's no way I'm hitting those goals!
