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!
