United: 5,000 bonus miles when you use your Chase MileagePlus Credit Card

UPDATE

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.

Details

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?

  1. Be an existing Chase United MileagePlus credit card holder as of August 1, 2012.
  2. Register here with your MileagePlus number.
  3. Spend $1,000 with the card by October 31, 2012.

Wrap-Up

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.
