    Why does it say "Miles Plus" where you fill out your account number, instead of "Mileage Plus"? Is this an elaborate FF# phishing scheme?

    UPDATE: I know it's not phishing, because it was under the My Promotions tab in my MP account. But it still said "Miles Plus." Sloppy.

    Yup and perhaps United finally "got it right" ;) where it won't let you register for a targeted promotion as opposed to in the past where you could register for anything whether you were targeted or not :rolleyes:. Oh, and no joy for anything for me in my promotions

    That's too bad to hear! I usually do not go to My Promotions, and UA has been pretty light this year. Sorry if anyone was misled by my original post - I was not sure it was targeted or not (and I noted that), but it is worth a check of My Promotions just in case.

    I can't even recall the last time I had anything in "My Promotions." Maybe DEQM and some random destination-specific promos in 2009.

    No-I wasn't picking on you at all and no you were not mislead at all either :). I was commenting as to how "messed up" ;) United is when it comes to their website and it's all around I/T functions (hence my reference to being able to register for any promo in the past even if you were not targeted as opposed to now having the registration only work for those who are targeted.

    That is what I got as well when I tried registering through the URL.

    But today I went to check out "My promotions" and I saw I was already registered for the 1000 mile version :confused:

    Seems like the quality of UA's website has deteriorated even more so than usual.

    I guess you fly too much and they are trying to tell you to take it easy for the next few months ;)

    FWIW, I just now got the email from United about this promo. Seems kinda of a$$ backwards. You'd think they would have more powerful systems that could do an email blast so that everyone gets the news more or less on the same day.

    I just noticed that the bonus miles appearing. I had been targeted for the 1000 mile flavor of the promo and it threw me off when I saw that the miles were posting in 500 chunks. But they had broken up the bonus to pair up with your outbound segment and your return and dated within a day or two of the actual travel.

    No love for me, despite flying 55,000 paid real miles on UA in the past fortnight all in 'B' class.

    Glen, I mean you no disrespect or ill will, but having read your posts here now, and over on FT, I have to ask:
    with all the trouble you have with a lack of love from UA and issues with upgrades clearing, why do you bother still buying B fares on UA? I'm curious what the compensating features of the program/airline are that keep you coming back time after time.
