TPG reader Greg just found the following promotion offering double award (not elite) miles in his United.com 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!
