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 Certain specialty tickets, including but not limited to unpublished, consolidator/bulk, group, tour and opaque fares, will not be counted towards spending milestones.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

Your complimentary status is one level higher than the MileagePlus membership status reflected in your MileagePlus account on May 7, 2016.

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.

This is the first time UA has taken the slightest notice of me since my flying began tailing off in 2013.
I got the same with $0 UA revenue tickets since 2013. Too bad I already have ~$4k booked during the promo period, not sure I will have more to book

I'm GS and spend over $100k in base fares, so not surprising:

$40,000 = 65,000 RDMs
$45,000 = 97,000 RDMs
$50,000 = 162,000 RDMs

frantic, also a DL DM and a very light UA flyer, was not eligible.

I got:
$500 = 10,000 RDMs
$1,000 = +15,000 RDMs
$2,500 = +25,000 RDMs

E-mail also stated I that they gave me an Economy Plus subscription, but it's not under my subscriptions

Edit: Did a dummy booking and it's giving me E+ for free, cool! Might actually use UA for a few trips.

My luck blows. Booked a bunch of resos yesterday and got the promo this afternoon. Would have required cancelling 17 trips and rebooking them etc for 85k RDMs on $10k PQD spend. Ended up not doing that to the poor 1k agent.

My guess:

$60K => 80K miles
$70K => 95K miles
$80K => 110K miles

Maybe he doesn't qualify for the special offer?

So these numbers are ADDITIONAL spend on top of the PQD I already have? If so, I have to spend another $40,000 ... if not, I only have to spend $10,000 to get 215,000 miles.

..., my lowest threshold is $32k. and the flight i booked 3 days ago ($5k) doesn't even count. i highly doubt i'll make it. i'm already at $20k this year - i would make GS if i hit the lowest bonus. but it seems highly doubtful i will spend that much money.
