UNITED Mileage Plus Sale:  Up To 70% Bonus (And Targeted Additional 10% By Acting Quickly)

UNITED Mileage Plus Sale: Up To 70% Bonus (And Targeted Additional 10% By Acting Quickly)

My wife received an email today from United Mileage Plus offering their typical and attractive mileage deal.   Depending on the amount of miles you buy, you can get up to a 70% bonus.

HOWEVER this promo is a bit different in that they are offering an additional 10% to any miles you purchase if you purchase them by April 22, 2018.   Otherwise, if you wait til after April 22, you’ll only qualify for the normal terms of the sale.   The sale ends on May 2, 2018.

When I logged into my own account to see what kind of deal I could get, I was not offered the extra 10% bump for buying miles by April 22, so I suspect it’s a targeted offer.

The bonus breakdown:

If you buy between 5,000 and 14,000 miles, you’ll earn a 25% bonus (35% if you qualify for the 10% extra bonus).

If you buy between 15,000 and 29,000 miles, you’ll earn a 50% bonus (60% with extra bonus).

If you buy between 30,000 and 88,000 miles, you’ll earn a 70% bonus (80% with extra bonus).

Remember, these miles do not qualify for status level qualification, but they certainly go a long way in booking a First  or Business Class seat on Lufthansa!

 

 

FLASH SALE:   United Mileage Plus Offering Up To 60,000 Bonus Miles

FLASH SALE: United Mileage Plus Offering Up To 60,000 Bonus Miles

In the July version of United’s Mileage Plus, you can earn us much as 60% in bonus miles when adding miles to your account.   This ‘Flash Sale’ lasts only until July 16 so if you need to add a few miles to your account, this may serve as a good time to do so.

The promo is tiered.   If you buy between 5,000 and 14,000 miles you’ll earn a 20% bonus.   If you buy between 15,000 and 29,000 miles you’ll earn a 40% discount.    Buying between 30,000 and 89,000 miles will yield you a 60% bonus.    If you buy 90,000 miles, you’ll get 60,000 bonus miles; basically a 66% discount and be paying about 2.1 cents per mile.

I like these sales because they let passengers add miles to their accounts for relative attractive pricing and then turn those miles into First Class or Business Class on Lufthansa, or Business Class on SWISS, Austrian, or BRUSSELS.

Remember you can only buy 150,000 miles a year for your account and the sale ends at midnight on July 16, 2017.
