United Bonus Miles for Flying
A few weeks ago I covered the unexpected gift that United sent me. Specifically they gave me a free Economy Plus subscription that is good through the end of January, 2017. As of now I don’t have many (any) United flights locked in, although that may have to change because United sent me a follow up offer to the Economy Plus subscription.
We recently granted you a complimentary Economy Plus® subscription so you can experience all the great things we are changing here at United®. Now, we’re inviting you to take advantage of an exclusive offer: Purchase and fly on United fares to reach your personalized spending milestones and earn up to 40,000 bonus award miles.
The more you fly, the more you’ll earn.
So in addition to extra legroom, I will get bonus miles for flying on paid fares with United through 11/30/16.
So what exactly are they offering?
This isn’t the biggest bonus in the world, but 8,000 bonus miles on $500 in spend seems like the sweet spot for me. I could see doing that on one or two business trips this year and the return on investment would be decent given the 8K bonus. With that said, I earn a 100% bonus on every flight with American and get free domestic upgrades along with Main Cabin Extra so it will be tough to get me to switch.
Between the Economy Plus subscription and this targeted promotion, United is definitely tempting me. If I find a convenient United flight for the right price then I won’t hesitate to book with them because of these promotions. Has anyone else received this offer or another one? Let us know in the comments!
