    I've been a cardmember for about 11 months. Did anyone else get this email today? Text below:

    Sender: Mileage Plus Partners email@info.united.com

    Special bonus: We've deposited 5,000 bonus miles into your account as a thank you.
    You now have X miles. That's 5,000 more than you had on Tuesday.

    As a special thank you for being a Mileage Plus® Visa Signature® cardmember, we have deposited 5,000 bonus miles into your account.

    Enjoy 5,000 bonus award miles as a thank you.

    Is it possible that this is the 5,000 miles offered upon each anniversary?

    Yep it is possible. I don't remember reading that it was a benefit but it may be a new benefit too. I was thinking it was more of a "we would like you not to cancel once we charge the annual fee" type of thing.

    It is not stated on the application form. However, I have seen it listed in other random places. Works out pretty nicely especially since, as far as I recall, you can pay for the annual fee with about 9,500 miles.

    I believe that my UA signiture offers 5000 points on the anniversary. It was mentioned when I signed up.

    Thanks everyone for weighing in. I was pleased but bewildered by the email.

    Also what credit card companies do is give you miles for over/under use. Say you just opened a card for the original sign-up bonus (I plead guilty) and then forgot about it for a few months...credit card companies know what the deal is and will offer bonus points for use. "Spend $1000 every month for 3 months and get 5k per month" is something I've gotten before (roughly, can't remember the award miles).

    I have CO, UA, and DL credit cards, but the UA one is my one of choice.
