Expiration Date – December 31, 2015
United Airlines recently introduced a targeted promotion encouraging MileagePlus members to fly and spend more with United and United Express. For the effort United will reward members with up to 75,000 bonus miles for segments flown and up to 125,000 bonus miles for reaching specified Premier Qualifying Dollar (PQD) goals for a grand total of up to 200,000 miles!
To qualify, you must first register, then purchase your ticket (paid flights only) and fly to any destination worldwide before December 31, 2015. Even if you did not receive an email invitation, go ahead and try your luck at registering because it’s possible you may have missed the email invite.
Once registered you will earn bonus miles for each segment you fly, up to 75,000 miles.
For longer flights (more than 3,000 miles) and United's p.s. flights:
Fly in Q, V or W fare class - earn 500 miles
Fly in Y, B, M, E, U or H fare class - earn 1,000 miles
Fly in F, A, J, C, D, Z or P fare class - earn 2,000 miles
For shorter flights (less than 3,000 miles):
Fly in Q, V or W fare class - earn 250 miles
Fly in Y, B, M, E, U or H fare class - earn 500 miles
Fly in F, A, J, C, D, Z or P fare class - earn 1,000 miles
PQD goals will vary and are specific to each recipient with a chance to earn up to an additional 125,000 miles:
Reach your first assigned PDQ goal by October 31, 2015 - earn 25,000 bonus miles
Reach your second assigned PDQ goal by December 31, 2015 - earn either 50,000 or 100,000 miles based on your targeted bonus
Strings attached? Sure there are. Here are the important ones:
Only the original recipient of an email invitation can register and participate in this promotion
United-marketed codeshare flights operated by other carriers are not eligible for this promotion
A segment is defined as one takeoff and one landing
Bonus award miles do not count toward Premier status qualification or Million Miler status
Award tickets and tickets that are not eligible to earn award miles do not qualify for this offer
Bonus miles will be posted 4-6 weeks after the completion of paid qualifying flights
This is a targeted promotion, which means not everyone has been chosen to participate. United is sending out email invitations but we encourage you to go ahead and try your luck at registering in case you missed the email invite.
If targeted, once registered you will have a chance to earn 75,000 bonus miles for segments flown and up to 125,000 bonus miles for reaching specified PQD levels for a grand total of up to 200,000 miles. While the PQD requirements vary by individual, we are told some are quite reasonable.
