Introduced earlier this week was a new targeted United promo. Similar to the IHG Accelerate offers that come out periodically, each promotion is targeted to a specific user and requires you to login. I’ve seen offers as high as 12,000 bonus miles for booking one flight and a few other offers that looked good. They ran this promotion back in March and I got nothing then. This time, I did get an offer
My wife …. and my son… and my other son… all got nothin :-). I guess United doesn’t love us too much all…
Mine might be worth doing (but probably not). Minimum fare in the terms and conditions is $225. If I found an Economy Plus flight for $225, that would earn about 10,000 miles, meaning I’d be paying about 2.25 cents per point, which would not be a deal. The only way I’d see this might make sense would be if it were a trip that I already had to take and United’s fare was competitive with other options.
What about you? Were you targeted for anything good? Leave a note in the comments

I got “book and take a trip” with a fare of $350 required for 5000 points. That is the only activity I have to do…. but I’m pretty sure I’m not doing that.
Take trip $300 and get 6000 points, dine MP Dining get 500 points. Both and get double for a total of 13000 points.
Thank you for the info, as I would not have known otherwise. I am Platinum and got 16000 miles for a $400 flight
Awesome! I’m glad it worked out for you
17,000 bonus miles for one trip at least $450 (base fare). Cheaper to buy award accelerator on existing trip.
