United is sending out targeted invitations to earn 3x redeemable miles on round trip flights from July 1 – August 31 on newly purchased tickets in select premium cabin fare classes.  This will apply to the fare classes F, A, J, C, and D – all of which are in premium cabins (and usually pricey).  Note that this is 3x on the base earnings, not the bonuses you get for elite status or fare classes.  You need to register for this offer  in order to participate.

Minus finding an “oops” fare, I can’t imagine a scenario where I will get to put this offer to use myself, but wanted to mention it in case you were eligible and end up buying a ticket in one of those fare classes this summer.  You can check to see if your account is eligible here, or look for an email with the subject line “Limited Time: Earn Triple Miles When You Fly United”.

    I received the same offer a few months ago. I wonder if it is targeted towards their 1ks who aren’t flying with them as much this year (on their usual high rev fares)?

  2. Les says:

    I’m a 1K who hasn’t been flying much since Feb. Just got home from vacation to find this offer in my stack of mail. It may come in handy with one or two trips, but nothing significant with the high fare requirements.

  3. ptahcha says:

    Oh that’s ridiculous. Most of their discounted first class fares are booked in P or Z. If this is their strategy to get people to upfare, with at least $500 difference each way, someone needs to hire a better intern.

  4. DaninSTL says:

    I bet they are. Maybe they see the best customers unhappy about recent change announcements.

  5. geoff says:

    Glad this offer has no disclaimers.

  6. Matthew says:

    I’m a 1K and I got a slightly different offer — it was double PQMs on paid roundtrips booked in F, A, J, C, and D fare classes.
