United Airlines August Buy Miles Offer: 25% Discount (Targeted)

United just sent out targeted offers that may have variable bonus amounts for select MileagePlus members. The offer that I received had the maximum discount of 25% for buying more than 10,000 miles.

Note that, as this is targeted offer, there is no direct link to the offer. (Not that anybody should buy at this price anyway.)

The price of a mile under this offer is 2.82 cents each. This is NOT a good offer and you shouldn’t price at this price. You can always buy United miles using the Award/Premier Accelerator (read more here) for around 2.1 cents.

Conclusion

You really should pass this offer. If you need to buy miles, just use the Award Accelerator or wait until a better offer is around later this year.

Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:

  • Minimum purchase of 3,000 miles required for this promotional pricing.
