United MileagePlus Buy Miles Holiday Offer


It is early October and United has already rolled out their holiday offer for buying MileagePlus miles. This offer is valid for purchase made until December 31, 2013, and is offering 25% discount on the purchase price.


The maximum umber of miles that you can buy in a calendar year is maxed at 100,000. The price of a mile under this offer is 2.8 cents per miles that is too expensive.


You can usually buy United miles for a lot less using the Award/Premier Accelerator (read more here) or during better sales.

You can access this offer on United’s website here.


I like United miles a lot due to the flexibility of using them on Star Alliance airlines. I would not however, buy them at this price.
