In recent months, United Airlines launched a promotion for earning bonus MileagePlus miles, called Mile Play. The program incentivizes select MileagePlus members to book and fly a certain number of trips or miles before a specific date in order to earn a targeted bonus.

The Mile Play promotion for September 2018 offers a number of tailored offers based on one's recent flight activity: Some require just one booked and completed trip while others require multiple trips above a certain spend amount. Some premium offers in the United 1K MileagePlus Members Facebook group included 150,000 bonus miles in exchange for four premium-cabin bookings completed by October 31, each of which had to cost more than $2,000.
