Need those extra few miles for a Lufthansa First Class Ticket?

Until May 27, United’s Mileage Plus is offering a bonus of up to 100% of award miles purchased for your account.   The sale is tiered whereby you will get a 25% bonus for buying between 5000 and 19000 miles, a 50% bonus for buying between 20,000 and 39,000 miles and a fantastic 100% bonus for buying 40,000 or more miles.   Keep in mind you can buy up to 150,000 miles per year per account.


At the most lucrative level, the 100% bonus tier, you’ll wind up only paying 1.88 cents per mile (including taxes).   Well below the threshold for what is considered a good deal.
