Earn up to 100,000 Bonus United Miles for Transcontinental Flights

Article By:

Last month I wrote about how United was enhancing its transcontinental service and re-branding it as ‘Premium Transcontinental Service’. United’s three Premium Transcontinental routes are Newark (EWR)-San Francisco (SFO)/Los Angeles (LAX) and Boston (BOS)-San Francisco (SFO). They offer lie-flat seats in Business Class, seasonally refreshed menus, access to United Club lounges, and Saks Fifth Avenue bedding.


United just announced a new promo today offering up to 100,000 bonus miles to flyers who try the enhanced Premium Transcontinental product. The promo appears to be targeted, so not every United flyer will be eligible. You can check if you’re eligible and sign up for the promo here.

Once you’re registered, you’ll earn 5,000 bonus miles for every qualifying flight (qualifying flights are the above Premium Transcontinental routes) plus an additional 5,000 bonus miles for every set of four qualifying flights you complete. Tickets purchased after you register for the promo are eligible for bonus miles and the flights must occur between July 1, 2017-October 31, 2017. Only paid fares are eligible for bonus miles, not award tickets.


Flyers can earn a maximum of 100,000 bonus miles with this promo, which is in addition to the normal miles you receive for flying. Also note that bonus miles do not count towards United Premier status. Bonus miles will be credit to your account 6-8 weeks after the promo ends (October 31, 2017).
