Our Verdict

Seems like this is a standard welcome bonus for the portal (maybe we’ve even written about it before?).  Hopefully the same $150 in spend can get you both bonuses, though that’s not entirely clear.

United cardholders will probably get the 1,000 points bonus even if you don’t pay for the purchase with your United credit card (so long as the card is recognized by your account), but the terms are vague on this point.
