UA Bonus Status Miles with Purchase of RT Tix

Just got this in an e-mail from UA:

Now, United® will match in miles what you pay for your roundtrip ticket on United or United Express® — one bonus mile that also counts toward elite status for every dollar you spend on a roundtrip ticket in any booking class. Just register at united.com/offer/mpd413, then purchase your roundtrip ticket and fly by November 30th. Every ticket you purchase will get you closer to award travel and the next level of elite status.

Pretty good deal. It figures this starts two days after I've booked my Sept. flights, but what the heck...

Forgot to add that it's for MP Visa purchases.

I read the terms and I do not believe the added points count towards your status. Please review and advise. Thanks

Seems curious there are at least 2 different targeted promos for such an offer.

Two different codes and headings so that seems to be the case?

I am 1P ("gold") and I got the 403 offer - miles do not count toward status. I have now registered for both offers, so we'll see how that pans out.

Theoretically, if I get mileage from each offer, plus double miles on my United Visa Gold Class, that's 4x whatever I pay for my ticket!

Interesting...

I got the one where I get elite status miles. But I am already 1K for next year, so it does me little good!

Still, a nice promo.

Yes. Got punted up to 1P about two weeks before I made it the old-fashioned way.

The promotion without the status miles is united.com/offer/mpd403. It offers Bonus miles for your ticket price.

The promotion with with status miles is united.com/offer/mpd413. It forwards to a page that offers Bonus and elite status miles for your ticket price.

There is another promotion at united.com/offer/mpd423. It forwards to a page that offers Elite Qualifying Bonus Miles. Anyone know if this might be related?

From reading both threads not sure if this apparent requirement is clear to all?
