The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • United is offering a 5x miles when you add funds to your TravelBank

The Fine Print

  • Members can choose from six purchase amount options and once purchased the value remains valid for five years from the date it is deposited in your TravelBank account.
  • Purchases made between September 17, 2020, at 12:01am CT and September 23, 2020, at 11:59pm CT, are eligible for a deposit of MileagePlus miles equal to five miles for every dollar of TravelBank cash purchased.
  • Purchases are not refundable and are limited to $1,000 per promotion per MileagePlus account. This offer is also subject to all of the TravelBank terms and conditions.

Our Verdict

Earlier this year United offered a 10% bonus. I don’t think airlines positions have gotten any stronger so it’s interesting that an even lower bonus is now being offered. It should code as a United purchase. Personally this is an easy skip for me.

PenFed Pathfinder VISA counts this as reimbursable travel expense, for $50 funding.

Accidentally purchased before I selected an airline… selected like 5 minutes after. Think I’ll have to do another purchase?

Did a $50 trial travelbank purchase on 9/22 with gold card – got reimbursement on 9/25! Thanks, DoC!

I did two $50 last week on 9/18, one with Amex Hilton Aspire and the other with a Penfed Pathfinder. Both pending charges have disappeared from my cc accounts, and the United account doesn’t have either card stored (it still retains a bunch of cards that I used previously). The $100 fund is still there.

Does anyone know whether this will trigger $100 Airline Incidental Statement Credit from BOA Premium Rewards credit card? Thanks.

Yes, this triggers the Amex airline credit for Platinum. I did the previous promo to take advantage of that. Just make sure you have United as the carrier on your card. If not, you can still change it if it’s unused.

It’s not $140 million, but 5x points is still better than getting dragged off the plane!

I have the Aspire and are curious to see if this would trigger the $250 travel credit as well. I have read some say it may, but never a strong YES. Getting 5X back on my United Card from a credit from the Aspire would be a win for me.

Yes. I did two $100 transactions and one $50 transaction a couple of weeks ago and it credited fine.

nice, i thought some people were having problems with multiple transactions so I just did 250 on biz platinum and ate the 50 bucks
