United Airlines MileagePlus Buy Miles Up To 75% Bonus + 1,000,000 Miles Sweepstakes Through March 9, 2018

United Airlines has launched new MileagePlus buy miles promotion and is offering up to 75% bonus for purchases made through March 9, 2018 (there could be higher targeted offers) + chance to win 1,000,000 miles as part of a sweepstakes..

United Airlines MileagePlus Buy Miles February 2018

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.

United Airlines made some changes to the MileagePlus awards effective November 1, 2017. You can read more about these developments here.


The lowest price that United Airlines has sold MileagePlus miles over the past year or so has been 1.88 cents each. If you can wait a bit, you can likely get better deal than this 2.15 cents each.
