Check To See If You’re Targeted For Bonus Miles For Flying United

Click here and enter your United MileagePlus number to see if you’re targeted for bonus miles for flying United.

Personally I’m not targeted for this promotion, but several DDF members were targeted. Their offers have varied, but a few reported offers on DDF have been:

Offer 1 (appears to be the most common offer):
-Spend $500 and earn 8K bonus miles
-Spend another $500 and earn another 11K bonus miles ($1K total spend for 19K bonus miles)
-Spend another $1,500 and earn another 19K bonus miles ($2.5K total spend for 38K bonus miles)

Offer 2:
-Spend $500 and earn 8K bonus miles
-Spend another $500 and earn another 12K bonus miles ($1K total spend for 20K bonus miles)
-Spend another $1,000 and earn another 20K bonus miles ($2K total spend for 40K bonus miles)

Offer 3:
-Spend $8,000 and earn 32K bonus miles
-Spend another $2,000 and earn another 47K bonus miles ($10K total spend for 79K bonus miles)
-Spend another $4,000 and earn another 78K bonus miles ($14K total spend for 157K bonus miles)

Offer 4:
-Spend $10,500 and earn 13K bonus miles
-Spend another $1,000 and earn another 20K bonus miles ($11.5K total spend for 33K bonus miles)
-Spend another $1,500 and earn another 33K bonus miles ($13K total spend for 66K bonus miles)

To get those bonus miles you need to register for the offer and buy tickets for United flights that are completed by 11/30. Tickets purchased before registering don’t count towards the total. Only the base fare+fuel surcharges count towards the spend threshold, taxes and government mandated fees don’t count.

The bonus miles will post in January 2017.

    I looked at previously booked reservations and I now see that when I upgrade to premium economy, it doesn’t charge me. Unfortunately, this only seems to work for me, not my wife who usually flies for me (it wanted to charge me to move her up as well), so I don’t think I’ll be using this benefit much.

    You are within the 24 hr free cancellation window so you might as well just re-buy the flight now then cancel the one you booked this morning (assuming ticket price is the same).
