    I've been a cardmember for about 11 months. Did anyone else get this email today? Text below:

    Subject: Bonus: You've received 5,000 award miles on us
    Sender: Mileage Plus Partners email@info.united.com

    Special bonus: We've deposited 5,000 bonus miles into your account as a thank you.
    You now have X miles. That's 5,000 more than you had on Tuesday.

    As a special thank you for being a Mileage Plus® Visa Signature® cardmember, we have deposited 5,000 bonus miles into your account.

    Enjoy 5,000 bonus award miles as a thank you.
    We appreciate your business as a Mileage Plus Visa Signature cardmember and wanted to let you know. Your miles are already in your account to use as you wish.

    Is it possible that this is the 5,000 miles offered upon each anniversary?

    Yep it is possible. I don't remember reading that it was a benefit but it may be a new benefit too. I was thinking it was more of a "we would like you not to cancel once we charge the annual fee" type of thing.

    It is not stated on the application form. However, I have seen it listed in other random places. Works out pretty nicely especially since, as far as I recall, you can pay for the annual fee with about 9,500 miles.

    I believe that my UA signiture offers 5000 points on the anniversary. It was mentioned when I signed up.

    Thanks everyone for weighing in. I was pleased but bewildered by the email.
     
  7. Also what credit card companies do is give you miles for over/under use. Say you just opened a card for the original sign-up bonus (I plead guilty) and then forgot about it for a few months...credit card companies know what the deal is and will offer bonus points for use. "Spend $1000 every month for 3 months and get 5k per month" is something I've gotten before (roughly, can't remember the award miles).

    I have CO, UA, and DL credit cards, but the UA one is my one of choice.
