United Airlines is having a 6 day special flash sale of Mileage Plus miles. United is offering a bonus of up to 60,000 miles if you purchase Mileage Plus miles by the end of Sunday July 16. To earn the 60,000 bonus United Airlines miles you would need to purchase 90,000 miles.
If you purchase United Mileage Plus miles before the end of July 16 you will receive bonus miles. The number of bonus miles you will earn depends on the quantity of United Airlines miles you purchase.
Here is the breakdown of the bonus based on the quantity of miles purchased:
- Purchase between 5,000 to 14,000 United miles - receive 20% bonus miles (purchase 10,000 miles and receive 12,000 total United Airlines miles)
- Purchase between 15,000 to 29,000 United miles - receive 40% bonus miles (purchase 20,000 miles and receive 28,000 total United Airlines miles)
- Purchase between 30,000 to 90,000 United miles - receive 67% bonus miles (purchase 60,000 miles and receive 100,200 total miles) (purchase 90,000 miles and receive 150,000 total miles)
Typically there are better ways to earn airline miles or points to earn free travel than to purchase miles from the airlines. Even when airlines offer specials like this United Airlines flash sale, it usually is not that good of a deal. In this case if you purchase 90,000 miles and receive 60,000 bonus miles, you will pay $3000 for 150,000 United miles. At 2 cents per miles it is not a very good deal. There are certainly better and less expensive ways to earn enough miles than to purchase miles. But if you need some United Airlines miles right away to finish earning for an upcoming trip, then it would make sense to take advantage of this flash sale.
