MilePlay (through Oct 31 2019)

Grrr, just noticed a new one this evening, and had just recently booked something that's outside the window now

Book and take a flight to or from San Francisco (SFO)*
*Each purchased fare must be a minimum of $250 to qualify

On the bright side it was only for 4k bonus miles.

Was wondering when this one would drop... Seems like they go a bit under 3 weeks between.

3x @$500 for me for 7.5k. Meh, although I'll likely make it as I need the PQD anyway. Sounds like another day trip to BTV for some good beer, another transcon for the miles, and something else...

No email for me yet. Is a link to the promotion available?

As I usually book 8-10 weeks out, just booked a Nov trip last week, these rarely could work for me (the few times I get an offer -- maybe due to may booking pattern)

Look on the mobile app, very bottom of the home page.

Book 4 trips ($200 minimum), earn 5700 miles.

If I hit this, it will be purely by coincidence. My present inclination to spend additional dollars to earn additional UA miles is exactly zero.

I didn't get an email, just been checking every few days.

I forget if these are rolled out in any gradual fashion but you might try again later in the week/next week etc.

Book and take a trip 2 times to get 14,000 bonus award miles.
*Each purchased fare must be a minimum of $450 to qualify

I already have travel booked for next month. Will that trip qualify?

Assuming the T&C are common to everyone, no.

"Only transactions initiated after registration and completed on or prior to October 31, 2019 will qualify toward satisfaction of the offer requirements."

Indeed; almost all UA T&C for offers requires ticketing after the promo starts. Making a change to the booking that triggers reticketing can usually qualify a prior booking, but that means upfaring or paying a change fee in most cases.

I got a good one! Book and take 1 trip, earn 2700 miles.

I missed the deadline for the last one by 2 days (was waiting on vacation time plus cheap SAN fares). Hoping they will credit as a courtesy!

For the first time, this 1K actually got an above average offer... And it's for a 1K who's already requalified, so not a light spender that UA is trying to encourage.

3 trips @$500 for 39000 miles.

I'll have one trip for sure, perhaps 2. But the third? $500 is not worth 39k miles.

3 trips, $350+ each, 26k miles.

Not going to happen.
