Took a quick glance and didn't see anyone talking about this promotion.

Was on United's homepage this morning and saw this new promotion they are running announcing changes at the airline. You can enroll in one click with a MileAgePlus Account and costs absolutely nothing. I have to take a few trips in the next six months so this was an absolute no brainer for me.

Spend $1000 get 8k miles
Spend $1500 get 11k miles
Spend $3000 get 19k miles


Some folks are reporting getting up to 50k miles, but mine was 38k.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

This offer by invitation only

* For this promotion, only dollars spent on the "fare" on eligible flights operated by United and United Express will qualify toward meeting spending milestones. Certain specialty tickets, including but not limited to unpublished, consolidator/bulk, group, tour and opaque fares, will not be counted towards spending milestones.

Got a similar offer, but maybe down 1000 miles in each segment for the same $$. Flew about 65k miles last year and had about $4500 PQD total (flew to Asia on non-united Star Alliance twice)

This whole website is a load of crap.

"We recently granted you Economy Plus® benefits so you can better experience all the great things we are changing here at United®."

Um....no. No, you didn't. You've offered to sell me status for thousands of dollars, but you've never given me so much as a free upgrade to an exit row seat. United continuing to prove why they're the worst carrier here.

I was targeted and fairly happy with my offer. $500 for 6k, $1000 for 9k, $2,000 for 15k. I've had a couple of award flights on United via UR points, and recently booked an economy one-way revenue ticket from PVR to IND. So, I'm not a big spender and this offer reflects that.

United got something right at least.
