United Airlines MileagePlus In 2018 launched a promo called Mile Play, trying to get members to spend and fly more (they have previously had these under different names). They refresh these offers every few months and have launched a new one for January 2021.
The Mile Play promotion is tailored to each select member based on his/her recent activity with United. It may require buying more business class tickets or flying a certain number of trips through March 31, 2021.
You can try your luck registering for this offer here.
My account was not eligible for this (never has been) because I moved it outside of North America a few years ago.
These Mile Plays may work for some, while the requirements to earn the bonus miles can be onerous at times.
