Last day to get free 500 Mileage Plus Miles

Through today (Nov. 11th, 2011), United is offering 500 Mileage Plus miles for downloading and using their new Mileage Plus shopping assistant. You can also get another 1500 Miles if you purchase something >$125.

I prefer the shopping assistant over the earlier toolbars. These are not as intrusive. Once you sign out of the assistant, they don’t bug at all. I have already downloaded, made a purchase and uninstalled the toolbar. Let’s see if the miles post.

  1. Hi, I downloaded the Assistant toolbar and then logged back in. It says “To qualify for the 500 bonus miles offer, make at least one search or purchase using the MileagePlus Shopping Assistance by October 31, 2011”.

    Your posting said 11/11/2011 is the last day. Not so true, I guess?

  2. I saw the 11/11/11 date now but I don’t remember what I did or clicked to make it show up. The login and the download are so buggy!

    I did install the tool and then performed a search. Hopefully the miles will come in 6 – 8 weeks later! But with the bugs, who knows…..

    Thanks for posting the reminder.
