United introduced “Mile Play”, a new way to earn miles with United MileagePlus® back in 2017, and the promotion appears frequently from the time to time.
As I was browsing my United app, it looks like the offer is back again for targeted accounts, allowing select members to earn bonus miles by completing tasks between now and October 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.
My offer allows me to earn a total of 2,500 bonus miles if I book and take 4 trips to or from EWR ($200 minimum fare).
I checked eligibility for everyone in my household, and my son got a slightly better offer than I did (3,400 bonus miles after taking 1 trip).
While my offer is way weaker than what I’ve received the past, it’s still a nice way to earn bonus miles on flights I probably will end up taking from Newark over the next couple of months. I certainly will not be going out of my way to book United flights to satisfy this promotion though.
Were you targeted? If so, what was your offer?
