  1. Ack I booked iad-dub on mar 20. Not worth it to cancel and rebook? Think I could get UA to give me the bonus anyway?

    • @Family adventurer: If you have a non-refundable ticket, you’d be dinged the cancel/change fee, so definitely not worth it. I’d still register, though, and see if the bonus miles hit your account anyway!

  2. I am pretty sure UA will do one for EWR-IST, but I already booked my ticket for first week of September a month ago 🙁

    I think having a booking date restriction is ridiculous. It should just be a travel by restriction. As long as you travel within the timeframe of the promotion you will get the miles. That is what AS does.
