CHICAGO--July 12, 2013: United Airlines announced the company is teaming up with Mercedes-Benz USA to provide innovative new benefits exclusively to United's most frequent flyers seeking a luxury driving experience.

MileagePlus Premier members can now receive incentives of up to $5,000 when purchasing or leasing most new 2013 or 2014 Mercedes-Benz vehicles. In addition, Premier members will receive 25,000 bonus miles, through Sept. 3, 2013, when purchasing or leasing a new 2014 Mercedes-Benz E- or CLS-Class model. These customers can use the incentive and mileage benefits at Mercedes-Benz dealers in the United States.

MileagePlus Premier members should go to united.com/Mercedes to take advantage of the offers. The website enables members to browse available vehicles, select the Mercedes-Benz of their choice, validate their Premier status and print a voucher to obtain the pricing and mileage offers at the dealership.

"United and Mercedes are two great brands," said Tom O'Toole, United's senior vice president of marketing and loyalty and president of MileagePlus. "We are pleased to join together to offer a valuable new benefit to our MileagePlus Premier members, United's best customers."

Full details about the new program are available at united.com/Mercedes. The incentive and mileage offers are subject to change periodically.
