Mileage Plus is on the hunt for premium members, and the program is awarding up to 40,000 miles to existing members who assist in the cause.
All you have to do to earn the miles is refer four people to the program who will be flying transatlantic before April 30. A brochure included with the Mileage Plus newsletter contains four temporary membership cards. Fill these out and send them to the International Service Center before March 30 to complete the referral process. Both the referees and the existing member will earn 2,500 bonus miles for an economy ticket, 5,000 bonus miles for a business-class ticket and 10,000 bonus miles for a first class ticket. Only transatlantic flights count and travel must be in any of the following fare classes: F, C, B, M or H.
The promotion code for this offer is MPE 062 and you will need the brochure that was sent with your newsletter. This offer may have been sent only to select members.
Still with United, Mileage Plus members are being offered a unique opportunity to spend some quality time in Nimmo Bay — a wilderness paradise located in Canada’s Pacific Northwest. To earn a vacation in this reclusive resort, which can only be reached by helicopter, members must either submit a winning bid in the latest Mileage Plus auction, or earn an entry into a drawing by signing up for email from United.
Seven winners will be selected and each winner can bring along one guest for a four day/four night vacation from Aug. 22 to Aug. 26. Nimmo Bay caters to a maximum of 18 guests at any one time, so with 14 of the 18 guests being Mileage Plus members there should be a fertile supply of dinner conversation. Guests will stay in a private, full-service log cabin perched above the tidewater. The cabins are steps away from a hot tub at the foot of a glacial waterfall. Guides will whisk you from one fishing spot to the next, carrying and preparing your gear. When you catch a fish, your guide will be on hand to provide photographic proof before releasing the fish.
If fishing isn’t your cup of tea, you can also take a helicopter tour of the area, hike through old-growth forest, explore local caves and kayak.
The minimum auction bid is 300,000 miles. To enter a bid call (800) 447-6772 and press 333 from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. CT, or go online to http://www.united.com/nimmobay before April 11. For members drooling at the thought of this trip, but without the requisite 300,000 miles, all is not lost. Each United email communication you subscribe to earns you one entry into a drawing for the trip — up to a maximum of six entries can be earned this way. If you’ve already signed up for email communications, you are already entered. The winner of the drawing will be selected on April 10 and the auction winners will be selected on May 1. Any miles bid will be committed during the auction period and may not be used for redemption purposes during this time.
