New Mileplay Promotion (complete by 10 May 2020)

Does anybody have any intel on when the next MilePlay promotion will be announced? Over the last ~year or so, the next one has been announced between 2-3 weeks after the end date of the prior one. With the last one having ended 1/31/20, I thought I'd ask - any insight? I have flights I'm holding off on booking... hoping it is coming soon (and is worthwhile).

Thanks!

Me too. I’m guessing this isn’t the behavior UA intended when they launched these MilePlay promos.

Probably not until either a) UA marketing decides it needs to drive some demand given the TPAC reductions or b) March 31st looms and they wanna hit their bonii.

Has anyone actually scored big on one?
no matter what my travel plans might be - United seems to figure them out before I do and come up with something that guarantees that I ‘miss it by that much’.

I got 160k miles this fall (for booking two $2k+ tickets while I was PP) then got 6k on the next promo (after I was 1k). Kinda bummed at that bonus discrepancy but free miles are free miles.

I wouldn't be surprised if Kirby felt (and the numbers supported this position - wouldn't be surprising either) that this was a needless handout that didn't really impact customer behavior meaningfully.

I don't think they're that clever.
A new MilePlay promotion will be around the corner with its usual random-mile-number generator, IMO.
