As a reminder, only 2 days remain in United’s Mileage Plus sale that is awarding up to 100% bonus miles when you buy miles for your account.    The offer wraps up on November 20, 2017 and with this deal, you can buy miles for as low as 1.75 cents per mile which is pretty good.

For example, buying the maximum amount of miles (75,000), will yield you 150,000 miles for $2625.00.   Not a bad price if you need to fill your account with miles to get a First Class ticket on Lufthansa or other premium cabin travel.

Remember, you can only buy a total of 150,000 miles a year (including the bonus miles you get during a sale).   If you need a lot of miles in short order, you’ll be able to start buying miles on January 1 if you max out your 2017 purchases.

The deal is broken up into brackets as shown below.    The more miles you buy, the better the bonus:

Buy between 5,000 and 9,000 miles and you’ll get a 25% bonus.

Buy between 10,000 and 29,000 miles and you’ll get a 50% bonus.

Buy between 30,000 and 75,000 miles and you’ll get a 100% bonus.
