United Airlines has launched 30% bonus MileagePlus promotion with select partners if you have not had transactions credited within the past 12 months.
The number of bonus miles that you can earn under this offer is capped at 25,000.
You can access and register for this offer here.
Note that this offer is only open for MileagePlus members in the US 50 states + DC.
Here are the eligible partners:
The conversion from Marriott Travel Package is not excluded under this offer per the T&C’s below. You could get 157,000 MileagePlus miles for redeeming Travel Package (read more here and here) at the 120,000 miles level due to 10% RewardsPlus bonus and another 25,000 bonus under this offer.
Converting points from SPG makes no sense due to 2 Starpoints to 1 United miles ratio unlike 1:1 with most other partners. Is also makes more sense to earn Starpoints than airline miles with Starwood.
Hilton has the 1,500 bonus miles per night promotion (read more here) that would become 1,950 miles per night when you factor in the 30% bonus.
Rockemiles would only make sense with 3,000 (access here) to 5,000 bonus miles first booking offer combined with this United 30% bonus.
Hertz has some targeted bonus offers for 5,000 to 7,500 miles per rental that should qualify for this 30% bonus as well (more than 10K miles per rental would be great!).
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
1. Eligibility: Offer valid only for MileagePlus® members residing in the 50 United States and District of Columbia.

10% bonus miles offer: For qualifying transactions with MileagePlus Shopping, MileagePlus Dining, and MileagePlus X that do not qualify for the 30% offer because the member has earned award miles with the applicable partner in the 12 months prior to the start of this offer, a member will earn bonus miles in an amount equal to 10% of the base award miles earned with such partner during the offer period.
