United Airlines MileagePlus Buy Miles 100% Bonus 48-Hour Flash Sale Through December 19, 2019

United Airlines has launched a new MileagePlus buy miles 48-hour  Flash Sale that is valid for purchases made through December 19, 2019. You can check your bonus or discount offer on United’s website here.

United Airlines has promotions every month for buying miles, but they all max out at a 100% bonus or a 50% discount (the same offer because United usually limits the number of miles one can purchase per year, including any possible bonuses to 175K).

You can access and see your bonus on United’s website here.

Note that you buy a minimum of 40,000 miles to get a 100% bonus.

Here’s the bonus schedule:

Price at 100% bonus:

The cost of a mile at 100% bonus is 1.88 cents.

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 likely yes. United stopped publishing award charts earlier this year but recently launched a website that featured award deals (read more here).

Conclusion

Unless your bonus is 100% or discount 50%, I would wait for a better offer to come around if you don’t need the miles right now. I have a hunch that this latest Flash Sale is likely only open for members whose account address in North America.
