United has put their miles on sale once again, this time you can get up to a 70% bonus. Remember, the all time biggest bonus on purchased miles is 100%, which prices miles at 1.88 cents a piece. This 70% bonus sale, prices miles at roughly $0.022 cents per mile, and is still a very solid deal. 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 a good deal. Let’s take a look at the current sale which yields a 70% bonus on every mile you buy.
You can buy a max of 150k miles per year. 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 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
