There’s one more day left to take advantage of United’s offer to buy miles for as low as 1.9 cents per mile (CPM). The raw number is actually about 1.7 CPM but when you factor in the taxes/fees it adds a couple of tenths.
The discount is based on the amount of miles purchased and is tiered as follows:
Buy 5,000 – 9,000 miles: Get 25% bonus
Buy 10,000 – 29,000 miles: Get 50% bonus
Buy 30,000 – 75,000 miles: Get 100% bonus
It’s once you buy 30,000 miles or more that you’ll get the CPMs under .02 cents, which makes it a very attractive opportunity to top off your balances.
Keep in mind that you can buy up to 150,000 miles a year, so if you have any room left, then you might want to take advantage of this deal.
And you know the best way to spend them right? 😉 I’m thinking Lufthansa First or Business Class award bookings!
