TPG reader Greg just found the following promotion offering double award (not elite) miles in his MileagePlus account under the “My Promotions” tab. My guess is that United is getting ready to announce this, but already loaded it in the system. I’ll be back to report when I know more, but please check your account and report whether you have the same promotion. I do not have elite status and do not have this promotion in my account and I get an error when I click the registration link.

If so, this will be a decent promo (though the cheapest fares are excluded) and it is not EQMs like American. But something is better than nothing!

    I’d hardly call it a decent deal. With only Q fares and higher counting it would be cheaper in most cases to just buy the cheapest fare and then buy the additional RDMs at ~3cpm. Unless you’re stuck buying the high fares or someone else is paying anyways it doesn’t seem like a particularly useful offer.

  • Sandeep Babu

    ugh. Damn United and their fare class restrictions!

  • Anne-Music and Markets

    I’m 1K and this offer is not available to me. Must be very targeted!

  • Yum

    I don’t have the promotions in my “promotion” tab but I do see the status of “Registered” when I click on your promotion link.

  • Winkelman

    Confirmed. My daughter received this offer a few days ago by email. I did not – as a 1K flyer, they likely felt the offer would do little to increase my travel.

  • Jlaveck

    I’m premiere executive and this is not available to me.

  • Bobloblaw

    Same for me.

  • Angelina Aucello

    I was able to successfully register myself and the mister (silver and gold, respectively), but when I went to the promotions page today it suddenly disappeared. Thank goodness for screen shots….

  • Angelina Aucello

    me too… says registered “dec 19″… took a screen shot.
