that would be nice :) But I doubt it ;) Still, TB funds are easy to use, so no concerns buying at this 9% discount from my end. Will definitely do this. Need to think about if we should buy 2x$1k.

It used to post like this in the old days as well. When it came through ultimately there was no ticket number and it triggered the credit. We'll see I guess if they fixed that loophole. Hopefully not!

There are six denominations you can choose from, $50 to $1,000.

Has anyone had success logging in and purchasing? I was ready to buy $1000 but I keep getting an error log when I log in. Thank you!

Multiple data points and screenshots on my blog for $100 and $250, so it should work for any amount:

Is there any way to add more funds without the bonus after you take advantage of this offer?

As covered on my blog, United media relations has told me that this will be an option after the end of the 10% promo!

Should work just fine, glad to see United bring this back!

Do Travel Bank purchases count toward PQP?

Or not until applied to a ticket, which is then used?

Thanks so much for this. Now to find out what value I have left of my $200. On my very few UA flights I've been springing for internet even when barely wanting it, since I figured the $ would end up going to waste otherwise. This is awesome news.

I THINK that you can exceed the amount of the credit you have left, and it will deduct up to the amount you have remaining, right?
