I just got an interesting targeted offer in my inbox from United to introduce “Mile Play”, a new way to earn miles with United MileagePlus®.
While I have no idea if the bonus amounts vary between accounts, my offer was for 14,000 bonus miles for booking and taking 3 flights in United economy by January 12, 2018.
The T&C states that flights must cost at least $225 to count, and award flights do not qualify. The flights do not have to be round trip.
Overall, I think this is a nice surprise if you had some United travel lined up over the next few weeks, but it’s not exactly mileage-run worthy.
Unfortunately, I don’t have any up-coming travel planned during the promotional period. I checked to see if other members of my household were also eligible, but they were not.
