United Airlines MileagePlus Buy Miles December 2017 Campaign

United Airlines has promotions pretty much every month for buying miles, but they all max out at a 100% bonus or a 50% discount (exactly the same offer because United usually limits the number of miles one can purchase per year including any possible bonuses to 150K).

You can access this offer and check your bonus percentage on United’s website here.

Does it make sense to purchase United miles?

If you use them for international business or first class tickets between expensive city pairs, then the answer is still likely yes.
