This post has partner links that I may receive compensation for at no cost to you. Thank you!
United Airlines has sent out an e-mail offering 500 United MileagePlus miles to anyone who signs up for partner e-mails.
Here are the caveats:
Opt in by August 31 to receive emails about MileagePlus partners and you’ll earn 500 bonus award miles if you stay opted in for 3 months.
Terms and conditions
Bonus miles will be credited to your account approximately 5 months after you’ve opted in.
Miles accrued, awards, and benefits issued are subject to change and are subject to the rules of the United MileagePlus® program, including without limitation the Premier® program (the “MileagePlus Program”), which are expressly incorporated herein. Please allow 6-8 weeks after completed qualifying activity for miles to post to your account.
500 miles is not a huge bonus, and it will take a long time for them to appear in your account, but this could be a useful way to keep a United account active.
Go here to log into your United account and update your e-mail preferences. Note that this may be a targeted promotion that is only available to people who received the original e-mail. If you’re concerned about that, check your e-mail for the message that was sent to you from United. Once you log in, you’ll see the below settings. Look for “MileagePlus Partner”, switch to subscribe, and then save.
Thanks to Points With a Crew for bringing this offer to my attention!
