A decent price to pay for United miles if you need them
United is currently promoting their miles with a 70% bonus, which prices miles at 2.21 cents a piece. This sale ends on in a couple week on October 8th, 2019 so if you’re interested, you have a week to take advantage. Lemme also be clear…if you don’t have a need for the miles, I wouldn’t speculatively buy them. But, if you’re short, or you’re currently planning a trip and could use the flexibility of having a bulkier account, this is the good deal ( the best is a 100% bonus. Let’s take a look at the current sale which yields a 70% bonus on every mile you buy over 30k miles.
As an FYI, their last sale ended in August and offered a 100% bonus.
You can buy a max of 175k miles. This includes the bonus.
The offer is tiered with the 70% bonus given on purchases over 30k miles.
If you purchase the maximum miles ( per account) you’ll end up paying 2.21 cents a mile.
Note…if you’re looking to fly multiple people, each account could purchase miles to reach your goal. The 175k is capped per account number.
Some of the best redemptions are on their partners flying to Europe and Asia.
EVA at 80k to Asia. A First Class product at business class rates.
Or you can redeem 110k United Miles and avoid all taxes and fees that Lufthansa usually levies and fly First Class from North America to Europe. A truly special experience
