I got the 2 for 1,000 promo :D

Buy $100,000 in GCs to Sams Club in $10 increments.  Get 10,075,000 miles.  Fly to CA and return the GCs (Have fun with that one!) and your only cost is the plane ticket.

Anyone want to build me a Firefox macro for the GC purchases?

Of course then the mileage mall comes back and says that Sams Club GCs don't qualify and you're SOL...

I don't think they have to refund in CA do they?
Title: Re: United month of miles promo
Post by: Dan on September 02, 2011, 01:30:59 PM
Sams Club GCs are good at Wal-Mart.  Does anyone know if you can buy Wal Mart GCs with them?
PJ pays .9 for SC GCs and .91 for WM GCs.  Also they require $25 minimum per GC, so if you sell to them you would have to get multiples combined somehow.  Anyone know if they'll do that?

At that rate if you bought $100,000 and sold to PJ at .91 (Yes, they'll prob stop buying more long before then, but they don't expire) your cost will be $9,000 for 10,075,000 miles or .00089 cpm.

CA law says that GCs of $10 or less must be refunded in cash if requested.  Good luck with 10,000 GCs though :D

How many GC's did you buy ?:)

 I'm also nervous they will come back and say they don't qualify. I just bought as many as I would use anyway in the next year just to be on the safe side.

Under 'how to earn' you will see 'Rewards not applicable on purchase or redemption of gift cards'.

fyi--i called untd to find out if they show I am registered for the promo ,as i was never invited but registered via a link , they told me I was--- BUT!!  I also asked if gift cards  from "all" on the shopping site would count --the rep checked and said "all" were ok , i will look at the link ,i am sure u are right  --and I will recall to be sure I am registered as I did not have confidence in the rep ----tks 4 the link

I recalled untd because I saw on ur link

so could not trust first rep  who told me all gift cards are ok --- the next rep told me you are registered but will notget credit as only those targeted will --spoke to supervisor told me send copy of invite.....

I'm confused on the math.
$100,000 in $10 increments is 10,000 purchases.
If you get 1000 miles for every 2, wouldn't it total 5,000,000?

From what we've seen recently of the mileage mall, don't expect anything without a fight...

should be 5,000,000 + 0.75 * $100,000 = 5,075,000 miles + what you got for credit card spending :)

Yup, calculated 1K per transaction instead of per 2 transactions,
No doubt it would end in a massive fight.

told me I was reg. will get 1k for ever 2 purchase ---

i later read some people who received invites were told ,they will not get credit  after they called in,last week  -- rep told me you are registered but will not get credit as only those targeted will( after she checked her computer ) --spoke to supervisor told me same and  famous send copy of invite.....

why I called:
"Even if you can register , be sure to confirm by calling United because it appears that you have to be targeted for the promotion.  Successfully registering for the promotion using the link  doesn’t mean that United considers you registered for the promotion."

now ua  made change to max 25k

my question what do you know?

Registered MileagePlus members may earn a maximum of 25,000 bonus award miles during the offer period. MileagePlus will honor the full amount of award miles for those members who earned more than 25,000 bonus award miles through September 9, 2011.



According to this if it's true that Gift Cards are included whoever purchased them all before today could be racking up a nice sum of miles right about now!

What if they get an overload of Sam's cards being sold to them? Will they stop accepting them?

Also why can't you buy the $10 Gift cards to a different store?

I just reopened a UA card to re-qualify for this, and I'm in the process of switching the FFN to the UA account I got the targeted  mailing.

I've noticed a lot of the UA MileagePlus mall stores have added verbiage excluding GC purchases. What store GC purchases qualify besides for Nordstrom and Sam's Club? (or can I buy Home Depot GCs and my purchase will qualify for the promotion but I won't get the bonus points from the UA MP mall?)

I read on FT  that a few more stores have changed to "no g.c. count" I take it as they do not count toward promo -- I BOUGHT SOME K-MART GC  TODAY they appear to be ok and the do not charge any extra fee---- easy to use up on many food items , household products etc.-- do not think HD COUNTS

HD definitely excludes GCs, it's in the MP mall HD page.

That's the first standard email you get. If you wait a bit you'll get a real response. Might take longer than a week but it will come.

Thanx.  Where did you email?

I'm not at a computer now but if you go to mileageplusshopping.com and look for the contact us button you should find it from there. And like I said it will take a while to get a real response but it should come.

238 of my 240 purchases are now showing as pending by United.  Doubt I'll fight the last 2 not posting.

Total miles should be about 123,500, or more than a business class ticket to Israel.
Thanks United for the extension!
119K "Description is not available" just posted to my UA account.
Moved 'em over to CO where I now have over 3MM with these :D

Shame they extended the deal on a Friday, any other day and I would've had the time to milk it for a whole lot more.
