United Bonus Miles or Free Upgrades - Targeted

United is offering a targeted promotion.  You can either get extra United miles or free upgrades.

You need to enter your United MileagePlus account number here.

I did not qualify on my account or my wife's account, but maybe you will.

If you qualify, your bonus is dependent on how many times you fly between now and November 15th.

1 Qualifying flight = 5,000 bonus miles or one upgrade
2 Qualifying flights = 10,000 bonus miles or two upgrades
4 Qualifying flights = 25,000 bonus miles or 3 upgrades

Hat Tip - Mommy Points

Not every ticket class qualifies for bonus miles so read the terms carefully if you are hoping to get the bonus miles.
