As of earlier today on 10/8, United has changed the offer, making it only eligible for:
Eligible credit cards for this promotion are only BAM – Guatemala, Bancolombia – Colombia, Banco General- Panama, Banco Popular – Dominican Republic, HSBC – Panama, HSBC – Costa Rica, ITAU – Uruguay, PacifiCard – Ecuador, Santander- Puerto Rico, Standard Bank – Argentina. Other credit cards are not eligible for this offer.
Thanks a bunch, United. I’d say this deal is dead since they actively changed it after word got out. Sorry, folks.
What’s the deal???
United is offering a bonus to Chase MileagePlus credit card holders. If you register for the promotion and spend $1,000 by October 31, 2012, United will give you 5,000 bonus miles.
There’s nothing much to it. It doesn’t seem targeted, although it’s not publicly advertised on the MileagePlus News & Offers page. It can’t hurt to register and spend the $1,000 if you are planning on already doing that in the next 3 weeks.
How do I get in on this deal?
- Be an existing Chase United MileagePlus credit card holder as of August 1, 2012.
- Register here with your MileagePlus number.
- Spend $1,000 with the card by October 31, 2012.
As with all deals that aren’t publicly advertised, there’s a chance that United will claim that you aren’t eligible.
I always recommend taking screenshots of the offer itself and of the confirmation page after registering.
