Last year, United introduced “Mile Play”, a new way to earn miles with United MileagePlus®.
Based on an email I just received, it looks like the offer is back again for targeted accounts, allowing select members to earn bonus miles by completing tasks between now and January 31, 2019.
As you can imagine, the offers vary greatly, ranging from just a few thousand bonus miles to the potential to accumulate massive amounts by flying.
Keep in mind that you’ll have to first register for the promotion, and only airfare purchased after the time you register will count towards the promotion. You can check to see if your account was targeted and register here.
I checked eligibility for everyone in my household, and only my account was targeted this time around.
My offer allows me to earn a total of 2,500 bonus miles if I book and take 4 trips ($200 minimum fare). This is not the greatest offer, but I do appreciate the opportunity to earn bonus miles if my plans include United into the New Year.
While my offer this time around is not too generous, it’s still a nice way to earn bonus miles. I certainly will not be going out of my way to take 4 trips to earn 2,500 miles.
Were you targeted? If so, what was your offer?
