Mileage Plus CYBER TUESDAY Deal:  100% More Miles on Purchases of 20,000 Or More Miles

Mileage Plus CYBER TUESDAY Deal: 100% More Miles on Purchases of 20,000 Or More Miles

Mileage Plus has launched a quick, 24 hour ‘Cyber Tuesday’ deal for miles for their members.

Until midnight tonight, anyone that buys at least 20,000 miles for their Mileage Plus account will be credited with a 100% bonus.   Usually the 100% bonus is reserved for higher amounts, but not in this case.

At the 20,000 mile threshold, it will cost $700.00 for the miles.   With the 100% credit, you’ll wind up paying only 1.75 cents per mile.   The cost per mile stays the same once you are at the 20k breakpoint.    There are no further CPM discounts for higher mile amounts.

If you buy between 5000 and 9000 miles, you’ll get a 40% bonus, and if you buy between 10,000 and 19,000 miles you’ll get a 60% bonus.

Remember, the deal ends tonight at midnight.

Only 2 Days Remain To Take Advantage Of United Mileage Plus 100% Bonus Miles Offer

Only 2 Days Remain To Take Advantage Of United Mileage Plus 100% Bonus Miles Offer

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.


United Mileage Plus:   Buy Miles & Get Up To 100% Bonus!

United Mileage Plus: Buy Miles & Get Up To 100% Bonus!

As the year begins to draw to an end,  United is once again offering an attractive deal for those of us who ‘need’ to or ‘want’ to buy miles in our Mileage Plus accounts.

In this latest deal, United is offering up to a 100% miles bonus if you purchase between 30,000 and 75,000 miles.   It’s about as good a deal as we’ll see when it comes to these promos.   Since United only allows members to buy 150,000 miles a calendar year, buying the 75k will get you the bonus 75k thus maximizing what you can buy for 2017.

To buy the 75,000 miles, you’ll need to part with $2625.00 plus tax but considering you’ll get 75,000 miles, the value proposition is fairly decent.   It comes out to about 1.75 cents per mile which a good price by any definition!  A fairly inexpensive value proposition as far as using the miles to book a First Class seat aboard a Lufthansa flight.

Other bonus brackets are as follows:

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.

The sale is in place through November 20, 2017.  Keep in mind that these miles do not count as status miles.
