For years, United MileagePlus has offered targeted bonuses to its members to encourage air travel. It's been a while since we have seen one of these promotions. But, starting this week, United's targeted bonus miles offers are back!

United has launched a “Multiply Your Memories” promotion to incentivize MileagePlus members to travel this summer. And some travelers are getting the chance to earn up to 7X bonus miles.

The Deal

  • First, you'll need to check if you're eligible for this promotion
  • There are reportedly three versions of this promotion: 3X, 5X, and 7X bonus miles
  • Book your flights and fly by August 31st, 2020 to receive bonus award miles
  • Receive up to 50,000 bonus award miles from this promotion

Many of us at AwardWallet aren't targeted, but one of us got a 3X bonus miles offer:

Terms and Conditions

  • You must book your trip after registration
  • You will only receive the bonus miles on the fare and carrier-imposed surcharges and excludes any government-imposed taxes and surcharges
  • Flights operated by Star Alliance member airline or a United MileagePlus partner airline with tickets issued by United (ticket number starting with “016”) will not qualify for this offer.
  • Award travel tickets don't qualify for this promotion
  • Miles earned through this promotion do not count toward Premier status or Million Miler status and do not apply to class-of-service bonus miles, Premier bonus miles or promotional Premier qualifying miles
  • Bonus award miles will post to your MileagePlus account 6-8 weeks after the promotion ends

Final Thoughts

Not everyone will qualify for this offer. Seemingly all MileagePlus accounts registered outside the U.S. aren't eligible for this promotion.

If you do qualify, this is a great bonus to take advantage of—especially if you're inching to fly again after a few months of lockdown. If you have a flight planned with United in the next couple of months, definitely check if you've been targeted for this promotion. And don't forget to maximize your bonus miles by using a credit card with United benefits—such as the United℠ Explorer Card.

    By no means is it science, but looking at the number of comments here might suggest that the targeting was somewhat broad this time. Many seem to have received at least some offer. Now we get to wonder how many actually fly during the window.

    I wonder how they determine who this is marketed to? Great way to stack up bonus miles. What a great way to give extra miles.

  • Avatar

    So how does it work? I believe everyone earns 5 miles, then you earn bonus miles for status, then there will be 7 more miles (for me at least)?

    not sure why I only got 3x but at least that my wife got nothing

      I’d be really curious to learn their algorithm for the promotion. Do you and your wife have similar travel habits? Or status? I have silver and got the 7x.

    I had already received and registered for the offer. I got the 5x bonus. I am still flying for work. Usually I fly American, but if United has a better schedule, it will be nice that I will earn extra miles.

    Seven time bonus United miles is a very interesting option to consider. This assumes that we feel safe in traveling.

    Not eligible. I wonder how they determined who was targeted for what.

    Got 5x here – though likely not taking any flights during the period.

  • Avatar

    3x here. But I only checked out of curiosity. No way I’m getting on a plane anytime soon.

    I believe I got this promo. Since I am not going to travel within this time period I didn’t look really close at it. It would be awesome to get those bonus miles.

    It looks like that United will not give away much through this promotion after all. 🙂

    Thanks for the heads-up. My offer is for 5x bonus miles. (No plans to fly anytime soon, but just in case.)

  • Avatar

    Just perfect. Have the 7x but no intention of flying for at least 9 months 😢

    • Avatar

      I was disappointed to not get the offer, but your comment made me feel better since we also don’t plan to fly anytime soon 🙁

    I received a targeted offer of 5x, I have the Chase United Explorer credit card.

    Not available for me. I am domestic, wondering why?
