United is currently promoting their miles with a flash sale that matches their all time biggest bonus on purchased miles of 100%, which prices miles at 1.88 cents a piece. This sale ends on June 13th, 2019 so if you’re interested you’ll have to act relatively fast. 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 best deal you’re going to get price wise. Let’s take a look at the current sale which yields a 100% bonus on every mile you buy.
As an FYI, their last sale ended on June 1st, 2019 and offered a 75% bonus.
You can buy a max of 175k miles. This includes the bonus.
The offer is tiered with the 100% bonus given on purchases over 30k miles.
If you purchase the maximum miles ( per account) you’ll end up paying 1.88 cents a mile.
Note…if you’re looking to fly multiple people, each account could purchase miles to reach your goal. The 150k 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
