United has a promotion called Mile Play where the airline awards United MileagePlus frequent flyer miles to select customers after they engage with the airline by flying a certain number of flights. The offer provides free miles for qualifying activities and is meant to incentivize customers to continue to fly with United.
How To Register
To start, you’ll need to register for the Mile Play promotion. Your specific offer will be revealed after you enter your MileagePlus number.
Were You Targeted?
Not all members are targeted, unfortunately, though there does appear to be a mix of both regular and elite status members that are eligible for the offer. Having a higher elite status doesn’t necessarily guarantee that you’ll be targeted, though the offers seem to be better for those that happen to be an elite member.
To find out if you can participate, you’ll need to visit the offer’s website. Unfortunately, there’s nothing you can do if you are not targeted for the promotion.
The number of miles United will award changes depending on your qualification, elite status level, and pattern of flying, though here are some examples of recent offers:
- Earn 2,500 miles after taking a $100 flight
- Earn 3,600 miles after taking 2 $50+ flights
- Earn 4,000 miles after taking 2 $200+ flights
- Earn 5,600 miles after taking 2 $200+ flights
- Earn 6,300 miles after taking 3 trips that cost $175 or more
- Earn 23,000 miles after taking 4 $450 or more premium cabin flights
All offers appear to end on July 30, 2022, so you’ll need to complete the qualifying transactions before this date in order to receive the bonus points. Remember, a qualifying fare is without taxes, so you’ll likely need to pay over these amounts in order to be eligible.
How To Use Bonus MileagePlus Miles
With the extra miles you earn, you can use them for:
Some of the offers that are circulating are enough for a cheap, free, one-way flight, so certainly don’t discredit this promotion.
This offer is an easy way to earn MileagePlus miles for little to no extra effort. Many, but not all, passengers will be eligible to earn the extra miles, and these can be used toward future flights, upgrades, and more. Most of the qualifying activity is relatively easy and straightforward to complete, so you should definitely check to see if you’re eligible to participate today.
