United referral bonus

Earn 5000 miles for referring an acquaintence to United if they fly by July 31st. Since they will also earn 5000 bonus miles with the first flight, the acquaintence will become a friend.

But they may not like you too much since you’ll both only get the bonuses if their ticket is booked as a “Q” fare or above — which means that the four lowest generally available fare classes (T, S, V, W) don’t count.
