1500 UA miles for any GILT.COM purchase
« on: November 29, 2011, 11:01:03 PM »
Not sure if this has already been posted, but I received an email with an offer to receive 1500 UA miles after first purchase on GILT.COM

This is NOT targeted. Says in the T&C:

"This offer is not limited to members who received this email; however program registration with Gilt Groupe at http://www.gilt.com/united is required. Registration can be closed at anytime without notice."

Anything really, really cheap on GILT?



Here are the full T&C:


1. A member can earn the 1,500 bonus award miles for their first transaction with Gilt Groupe. Registration with Gilt Groupe is required to earn this bonus.
2. A member can earn 5 award miles per one U.S. dollar for any transaction with Gilt Groupe in the first 6 months after registration. Registration with Gilt Groupe is required to earn award miles with Gilt Groupe.
3. This offer is only valid for new Gilt Groupe members who registered through this program.
4. Please allow as much as 6-8 weeks for miles earned to post to the registered account.
5. This offer is not limited to members who received this email; however program registration with Gilt Groupe at http://www.gilt.com/united is required. Registration can be closed at anytime without notice.
6. This offer is not combinable with other MileagePlus offers.
7. Miles accrued, awards issued and bonus offers are subject to the rules of the MileagePlus program. The MileagePlus program, including accruals, awards and bonus mile offers is subject to change without notice. United, MileagePlus, are registered service marks. For complete details about the MileagePlus program, visit mileageplus.com.
8. Offer subject to change without notice. Other restrictions may apply.

Did anyone get their points from this deal?  (I mean, before they did the switch to higher minimums???)

I called 1877 280 0545, s/o picked up quickly, and told me that United informed them that it takes 6-8 weeks to show.

Also, FYI, they have $25 referral bonus for first purchase (didn't see any minimum).
Btw that and the current 1.5k UA miles and the 5 miles per dollar spent, this could be a decent deal.

Very random, but anyone know the date the promo changed to include a minimum spend?
