United MileagePlus Promo:  Buy Miles & Earn Up To A 50% Bonus!

United MileagePlus Promo: Buy Miles & Earn Up To A 50% Bonus!

United is at it again with another edition of their MileagePlus Miles Sale.

This time, you can earn up to 50% more miles when you buy miles for your account.   The bonus is incremental based on the amount of miles you purchase.

If you buy between 5,000 and 35,000 miles you’ll earn a 25% bonus.

If you buy over 35,000 miles you’ll earn a 50% bonus.

At maximum bonus levels, you’ll be buying miles for 2.3 cents per mile (including the bonus miles).   Not a bad deal if you need to top off your account or are missing a few miles that are keeping you from that enjoyable Lufthansa First Class seat!

The promo started yesterday and continues through May 22.   You can buy up to 150,000 miles for your account each year (including bonus miles credit).

SWISS Fare Sale Ex-Italy To The World :  First Class For €2500 / Business Class As Low As €900

SWISS Fare Sale Ex-Italy To The World : First Class For €2500 / Business Class As Low As €900

SWISS has launched extremely attractive premium fares for travel originating from their Italian gateways to most of their global destinations.

One of the better deals is Hong Kong for only €3000 in First or in Business Class for a ridiculously low price of only €1400.

Other examples include Bangkok for €2500 in First / €1340 in Business, Sao Paulo for only €2900 in First / €1400 in Business, Delhi for €2500 in First / €1340 in Business.

Unfortunately the fare sale does not extend to North American destinations, but there are plenty of fantastic prices available to the rest of the world if you don’t mind originating your SWISS ticket in Italy.   A minor inconvenience considering the impressive pricing for their premium cabins.

This offer obviously requires you to connect through Zurich, so you connecting flight from Italy would be a Business Class seat aboard a SWISS narrow body aircraft (A319/20).

The fares are available for booking until May 22, and valid travel windows extend all the way to February 28, 2018 so there is plenty of room to find a ticket!

A minimum stay of 5 nights is required to qualify for these fares.
