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 Certain specialty tickets, including but not limited to unpublished, consolidator/bulk, group, tour and opaque fares, will not be counted towards spending milestones.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

<redacted e-ticket verbiage>

If you received complimentary Premier status:

Your complimentary status is one level higher than the MileagePlus membership status reflected in your MileagePlus account on May 7, 2016. Your status will be not be increased to any other level in connection with this offer.

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.
A Premier membership card and kit will be not issued for the complimentary status period. 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.
During the complimentary status period, you may not have access to all reciprocal Premier benefits with United's partner airlines, including access to Star Alliance lounges.
Members will not receive Regional Premier Upgrades as part of this offer unless the published qualification thresholds for Premier Platinum status have been earned in the current year.
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).

1K, no e-mail, $6500 in PQDs / 69000 PQM so far this year with another $2000 booked:

$9000 -> 12,000mi
$9500 -> 17,000mi
$11000 -> 28,000mi

I'm a solid maybe on the first two between now and 11/30 since my average year is right around $16,000 PQDs - but for 17,000 lousy RDMs who cares??? Who comes up with these numbers?

My wife, Silver, barely any spend this year and one flight booked for July:

$1000 -> 10,000mi
$1500 -> 15,000mi
$3000 -> 25,000mi

For her, it might make sense...

But neither of us got the email (I never seem to. Ever. Other than the offers to buy RDMs at ridicustupid prices) and the terms say offer valid for original recipients of the email only.. Hmm.

Wow, as a GS these numbers have to be easily within reach. 139K RDMs is a great bonus for hitting what must be mid year spend for you.

I got no response. So no, not even bones being thrown - seems like several of us are simply being ignored altogether.

My offer was similar to other GS offers,

Milestone 1: spend $16,500 and earn 43,000 bonus award miles
Milestone 2: spend $18,500 total and earn 64,000 more award miles
Milestone 3: spend $25,000 total and earn 106,000 more award miles


But my son, who was Gold last year but GM this year, got:

Milestone 1: spend $1,500 and earn 18,000 bonus award miles
Milestone 2: spend $2,500 total and earn 27,000 more award miles
Milestone 3: spend $5,000 total and earn 45,000 more award miles


at $.019/mile, that comes out to a ~35% discount at the $5000 level. That's enough to make me cancel a few award tickets I got for him and rebook.

I have no email but was able to register; however, my MM companion was not eligible despite their flying Star Alliance a fair bit and United a handful of times a year. Though they'd be Silver or Gold without my match. Anyway, my offer:


These are your spending milestones:

Milestone 1: spend $11,500 and earn 28,000 bonus award miles
Milestone 2: spend $12,500 total and earn 42,000 more award miles
Milestone 3: spend $17,000 total and earn 70,000 more award miles


Additionally, I've compiled all the data up to and including helvetic. The cpm rates are all over the map -- as low as 5 cpm and up to 20 cpm. You can check out the numbers and a simple graph here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...2k59Gp2aH3mZU/

Didn't get the email but followed the link in OP's post and this is my offer:

$38K = 56,000 miles
$43K = +83,000 miles
$47.5K = +138,00 miles

Total potential = 277,000 miles. I might hit some of this. Too bad previous bookings don't count...

No email, but entering my number turned up:

Milestone 1: spend $2,500 and earn 10,000 bonus award miles
Milestone 2: spend $3,000 total and earn 15,000 more award miles
Milestone 3: spend $4,500 total and earn 25,000 more award miles

This probably will affect my buying, as I have mostly been flying partners and crediting to MP (I'm at 37K PQM on 450 PQD) and I think I can hit the third tier by November. Better MP earnings has been a significant factor in my giving money to LH, NH, BR instead of UA.
