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.

The spend must be on United flights?

Anonymous

From reviewing my family accounts, it seems as all accounts that have no united revenue tickets credited have the basic 30k offer. The ones that have united revenue tickets credited, have other offers.

Ron

got:
$3k for 11000 miles
$3.5k for 16000 miles
$5k for 26000 miles

total of $11,000 for 53k bonus miles (sounds worst comparing to others)

Josh

I purchased a flight on united this morning. Then saw this and registered less than one hour later?

Mine sucks,

Spend 6500 get 1000
Spend 7000 get 15000
Spend 8000 get 24000

I guess they know what your current spend is and they are not making it attainable.

Mark

I got
$5000— 8000
$1000- 11000
$2500- 19000

@Josh, if the fare hasn’t changed, then cancel for free (within 24 hrs) and rebook…

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.

NYSF

@Josh:
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).

how

Question is how do we spend this amount on united if not flying??

ariella

I got nada.

Sam

Anyone know if you have to buy your tickets from united.com? Also, would Thank You or Ultimate Reward travel reservations count towards the purchase minimums?

anonymous

can I buy a refundable ticket.
then cancel it a week or 2 later and still get the extra bonus miles?

KayBee

$4,500 –> 10,000 miles

David

Anybody to confirm ?
Do I have to book directly with the airline or it can be thrue a 3’rd party web sure asking I fly united ?

An does it have to be seperate transactions , or can I spend 2,500$ at once an will get 38k miles ?

An does the return flight have to be completed by 11/30 as well ?

Any help would be appriceated .

Chossid

Got the 1st one. Question is does the flight have to be a United flight or a partner airline would work? I have a flight coming up already bought that hasn’t been linked to any FFN yet on a partner airline.

Dan,
In the future, when I get special offers where should I send them to you? (before you post them)

Mo

Via reddit:

[Quote]My offer: 47,000 points for $3,000 + 70,000 points for $6,000 total + 117,000 points for $12,000 total

so, 234,000 for $12k spend. Unlikely I’ll get there though. Flights need to be flown before 30-Nov-2016 :/[/Quote]

A hell of an offer.

Mo

@Josh:
If not, cancel and rebook.

@john: Thanks – it is for a flight within 7 days…so I don’t think that I can cancel.

DEAL GUY

If I buy 2 tickets for me and the wife, do i get credit for the total of the 2 tickets or just mine?

maifriend

I’ve been targeted 2 days after I book a round trip to Japan on United. I was thinking “did United really do that on purpose? Targeting me two days after I booked my flight?”. And of course the fine print “only for flight purchased after the offer was sent”.

Shulammis
