A great opportunity to shore up your United account
United is matching their all-time biggest bonus on purchased miles, 100%, which effectively allows you to purchase miles for just 1.88 cents a piece. That’s the best we’ve ever seen, and creates a limited-time opportunity to shore up your account for that aspirational redemption. 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, we haven’t seen miles priced any better. Let’s take a look at this sale that gets you 100% bonus on every mile you buy and ends tomorrow!
The Rules. You can buy a max of 150k miles per year. This includes the bonus.
The Offer: Tired. 100% bonus given on purchases over 45k miles.
The price. Purchase max miles ( per account) and 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.
Partner Business Class to Europe for 70k, like Swiss, are both great redemptions
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
Terms and Conditions: Run until tomorrow, September 6th, 2018 Central Time ZoneYou can go here to buy
Note – readers are noting that the Ink Business Preferred has been coding this as 3x category bonus. I don’t personally have confirmation of this, but if you’re a cardmember and you’re charging this as a business purchase let me know if you have the same experience. Thanks!
