Just in time for the holiday season, United and Chase are offering a new promotion to targeted United cardholders. Select cardholders get the choice to earn up to 20,000 bonus MileagePlus miles or get a total of $200 in TravelBank cash in 2021. But, you'll need to register by December 15, 2020

20,000 Bonus Miles or $200 TravelBank Cash

If you're a United cardholder, start by clicking this link. Enter the last four digits of your card number and your MileagePlus account number to see if you're targeted. If targeted, you'll be able to select between receiving:

  • $50 in TravelCash every quarter in 2021, for a total of $200 in TravelCash. Each TravelBank cash is valid for 90 days from the issuance.
  • 5,000 bonus miles every quarter in 2021, for a total of 20,000 bonus miles. You must spend $5,000 on your registered card during the calendar quarter to receive the bonus. The bonus miles will be posted to your MileagePlus account within 6-8 weeks from the end of each calendar quarter.

Which United Cards Are Targeted?

The terms and conditions don't specify which United cards are targeted for this offer. Dan's Deals indicates that the following cards are targeted for this offer:

However, other United cards may be eligible. Let us know in the comments below if your United card was targeted or not.

Our Take

If you hold a United co-branded card, it's worth your time to click this link to see if you've been targeted. If you are, carefully consider which reward you want.

As the quarterly TravelBank cash expires 90 days after issuance, it requires you to make a United purchase once a quarter in 2021 to take advantage of this offer. Getting 5,000 United miles each quarter is certainly more flexible and should be more valuable. However, this option requires cardholders to spend at least $5,000 in the quarter to get the bonus. That's a stiff spending requirement for a modest bonus.

Either way, it's positive to see airlines and card issuers team up to offer promotions to cardholders. Hopefully, we will continue to see these types of incentives as travel resumes in 2021.

If you're not already a United Club Infinite cardholder, the card is currently offering a waived annual fee for the first year as a sign-up bonus. As a cardholder, you'll get complimentary United Club membership for as long as you remain a cardmember, plus plenty of additional perks when flying United.

    What is the percentage of members targeted for this promotion?

      I wish we knew! The terms and conditions won’t even say which cards are included and excluded. So, unfortunately, we don’t know how many cardholders may be targeted for this promotion.

    Thanks for sharing the info! I have United Explorer card and got no bonus. Hope there’ll be another round of offers in the next few weeks!

    I find it hard to just spend $5000 for the bonus if I am targeted.

    It is no surprise that no-fee card members get no love. 🙁

    No United card but Barclay targeted me for a $600 offer! $500 for $3,000 in spend and an extra 10% back up to an additional $100!

    Thanks, this is a fantastic opportunity. Great work on this blog.

    I tried the link but I wasn’t targeted. I have the United Explorer card. Oh well, I wouldn’t likely have diverted that kind of spend to this card anyway.

    It was worth a try.

    Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, my card does not qualify for this promotion. Will hope that some new promotions will be added over the next few months for this and some of my other cards.

    This is a great bonus for United cardholders. Another great promotion from Chase.
