This week, United is offering a 5% or 10% bonus when adding funds to your United TravelBank account. This offer is good when funding up to $1,000. However, you have to make the transaction by December 9, and the bonus funds will expire in 120 days.

10% Bonus When Funding Your United TravelBank Promotion

Get a bonus when funding your United TravelBank

  • Get a 5% bonus when funding $50 ($2.50 bonus) or $100 ($5 bonus)
  • Get a 10% bonus when funding $250 ($25 bonus), $500 ($50 bonus), $750 ($75 bonus), or $1,000 ($100 bonus)
  • Must fund your account by December 9
  • The bonus value expires 120 days from the bonus deposit date

Since the bonus value expires so soon, you should be pretty sure that you'll book a United flight in the next 4 months to take advantage of this offer. The original fund amount lasts for five years in your TravelBank.

Using Credit Card Airline Fee Credits

There are reports that using an Amex card to load United TravelBank credit has been triggering the Airline Fee Credit. So, if you have an American Express card with an unused Airline Fee Credit and you've chosen United as your selected airline, you can try to finish off your Airline Fee Credit by taking advantage of this promotion. Just note that this can change at any time.

Airline Fee Credits are as follows:

In addition, one of the benefits of the Chase Sapphire Reserve® is an annual $300 travel credit. Funding you United TravelBank with this card should also trigger the travel credit.

Our Take

If you have a United flight planned in the next four months, this is a tempting deal to take advantage of. Otherwise, you could probably skip this deal — unless you have another reason (like using Amex Airline Fee Credits) to fund your TravelBank anyway.

  • 120 days? seriously?
    Makes no sense.

  • How does this code?

    Has anyone confirmed this actually automatically generates Amex statement credit ?

    Even without bonus would make switch my Amex Aspire airline to United if it generates statement credit

  • 10% is a bit low for me to add funds to United’s travel bank unless I’m just about to book a ticket, in that case it would be free money!

  • I’ve seen numerous social media posts by commenters scrambling to use their travel credits by 12/31/2020. United’s Travel Bank bonus makes this a sweet win-win solution for both them and United Airlines, esp. for those planning to fly United before the bonus expires.

    For CSR cardholders who are not traveling anytime soon, though, I think the CSR’s allowing cardholders to double dip groceries and gas purchases to both earn 3x UR AND qualify for the $300 travel credit is a better deal.

  • This is a great deal for the right person. United is not the airline that works best for me and my travel patterns. If it were American or Delta, I’d be funding for the maximum bonus.

  • At least you could book a trip using the bonus funds and if you need to cancel it, the bonus could cover the cancellation fee

  • Airlines definitely appreciate cash flow nowadays, I think.
