Just noticed this promotion when I logged into my daughter’s United MileagePlus account yesterday. Earn 10x miles on select flights from San Francisco bay area through April 30, 2017.

UA double mile

The promotion apparently was loaded into my daughter’s account on February 17. It seems to be targeted, as I did not receive any similar promotion for my account. Registration is required before taking the first flight.  The table below shows the total miles you will earn. If you are interested, you can register here on United’s website using promo code TB7M15. Out of curiosity, I tried registering my account and my husband’s account, and I was successful with both accounts!

This offer seems to be focusing on flights out of the San Francisco United hub. I wonder if there are other similar offers out there, perhaps for flights out of other United hubs? Let us know if you receive a similar offer in your United MileagePlus account.
