United just released a new version of Mile Play that will allow some lucky MileagePlus members to earn thousands of bonus miles on upcoming United flights. The previous version of Mile Play that ended in early March was a total dud for my family requiring way more United flight purchases that we were going to make. This new version is much friendlier to us, and may actually result in some extra miles in the bank.
The new United Mile Play promo runs until May 13, 2018, and only flights purchased after you register will count towards your targeted offer. My offer awards 11,000 bonus United miles after taking two trips by May 13, 2018. In this case, a trip is defined as a unique travel itinerary with a unique confirmation number that costs at least $175. Theoretically, two one-way flights meeting the spending threshold would trigger the 11,000 bonus United miles, which is really not a bad deal at all.
I can’t guarantee that I will need to book at least two $175+ United flights to travel before May 13th, but it is certainly possible. Josh got a very straightforward offer of 2,500 United miles for one $225+ United flight by May 13th, which is also within the realm of possibility.
You can head here to see if your MileagePlus account was targeted for a Mile Play offer. If it was, I highly recommend registering for it just in case some travel pops up, even if you think you won’t need it.
If you got a United Mile Play offer, I’d love to hear all about it!
