United Airlines has launched new MileagePlus buy miles 7-day up to 40% off-sale through August 13, 2018 that should be open for all members (sometimes these sales are only valid for in the US).
United Airlines has promotions 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 discount on United’s website here.
Price at 40% off:
The price of a mile at 40% off is 2.23 cents each.
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.
United Airlines sells its MileagePlus miles monthly. If your offer is not 50% off, you can liely buy them cheaper in few weeks time when there is a better offer around.
