Quick Thoughts

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 24,000 bonus miles when taking three trips with United by September 20th. A “trip” is defined as a flight that costs more than $200 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 $200, 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.

Book and take a trip 2 times, $175 minimum, 11,000 bonus miles. Valid through September 20th.


I got book once and get 3x up to 15,000 miles; min $300 spend.
My husband got book once and get 3,000; min $100 spend.

We actually have a trip booked 9/14 so will look to see if I can rebook at the same fare.


I got: Book and take a trip 1 time and earn 3x bonus miles, up to 9,000 bonus award miles. (Based on cost, not miles)
My wife got:
Book and take a trip 1 time to get 2,500 bonus award miles. $200 minimum. Might do her’s.


Earn 5x miles of the fare price. Air fare must be $200 or more. First qualifying trip. Bonus miles up to 12,000 miles.

This sucks.


I got book and take a trip 3 times minimum of $150 per trip before taxes and earn 16,000 award miles. The offer seems much better than what others have posted but I don’t think I have any room in my schedule to complete this offer.


Book and take a trip 2 times to get 2,500 bonus award miles. Each purchased fare must be a minimum of $100 to qualify…


2 trips @$300 and wait for it…2,500 miles – thank you very little.


4 flights for 5,000 miles. Trash!


1 $300+ flight for 2,500 miles. Nice!


Did I hit a bonanza? 3 trips = 14,000 miles!


if i book united flights on Captial One travel, will they be eligible for this promotion?


I don’t think so


Husband got “book a trip 1 time and get 3,000 bonus miles.” I got book 2, get 4,500 miles. United has almost no presence where we live, and we haven’t flown them in 5+ years. Doubtful either of us will do this.


Book and fly two trips in premium cabin, minimum $650 each, for 31K points.


Nothing. Guess my one segment with United last year makes this UA million miler someone who doesn’t need to be coaxed and bribed to fly United. I did fly just shy of 100K on their competitors last year.


book 4 trips $150+ and earn 5,000 miles………………pass

Mine was- book and take four trips (at least $250/each) before March 10 and get 31,000 miles. It’s a lot but also no way can I meet that since most of my trips are international work trips that are a week+. To cram four in before March is absurd. They know how I travel and know I won’t meet this. Even if I did two trips, buying one way tickets, it would be hard to cram it into the timeline.


2 trips for 11,000 miles. It doesn’t state round trip as the criteria, just has to cost $175+. I would think I could book 2 one-way flights vs a round trip flight and meet the requirements?

Yes, two one-way flights will be fine if it doesn’t have any wording stating it has to be round-trip.
