This is a great promo for MileagePlus cardmembers where you can earn up to 5,000 bonus award miles when you register and spend at least $1,000 USD or equivalent in local currency on your MileagePlus® Credit Card between August 1 and October 31, 2012.
The registration page let me register, and the offer doesn’t appear to be targeted, but I have been able to register for United promos before that I wasn’t targeted for (and they didn’t end up working). I say that since just because you can register for a United promo, doesn’t always mean that it will work for you in the end. Of course I went ahead and registered for this one and have my fingers crossed that it will work for me!
Thanks a million to LAXJunkie415 on Milepoint for sharing this info. On that thread some are saying that previous spending counts within the 8/1 – 10/31 time frame. If that is true, it would be great as we have certainly already met that requirement.
Certainly can’t hurt to register and see what happens!
