United has released another round of targeted Mile Play offers and, in at least some cases, they’ll be easy challenges to complete.
- Earn bonus MileagePlus miles when completing United Mile Play offers.
- Only original offer recipients can register for and participate in this promotion.
- Member must register for this promotion on or prior to March 15, 2024. Only transactions initiated after registration and completed on or prior to March 15, 2024 will qualify toward satisfaction of the offer requirements.
- Registrant must complete all activity specified in the offer to receive bonus award miles. Partial bonuses for completing only certain activity will not be awarded. Bonus award miles may only be earned once.
Mile Play offers vary from person to person – if you’re even targeted – so there’s not one single offer that’s applicable to everyone who’s targeted. My offer gives 3,800 bonus miles when taking one trip with United by March 15th. A “trip” is defined as a flight that costs more than $150 and one-way flights count.
There are a couple of important things to be aware of when it comes to United Mile Play offers. The first is that the spending threshold for the flight(s) you need to take relates to the fare itself. There are various taxes and fees added on when booking paid flights, so in my case the fare + carrier-imposed surcharges portion has to be at least $150, without counting government-imposed taxes and fees…but your spending threshold might be higher or lower.
The other key thing to be aware of is that qualifying flights have to be booked after you’ve registered for the promotion. Last year, Nick booked a United flight just a couple of days before being targeted for Mile Play. However, because that was booked before registering for his Mile Play offer, it wasn’t eligible to be a qualifying flight to complete the offer requirements. Thankfully that was easy to remedy; the price hadn’t changed, so he was able to cancel and rebook it in order to earn the bonus miles from the flight.
