United has extended it’s MileagePlus Miles Purchase sale, but it will not be at the fantastic 40% off we were able to enjoy for the past 48 hours. This updated sale will continue until June 15, 2012 so there’s plenty of time to beef up your account balances.
HOWEVER YOU CAN STILL GET MILES AT 40% OFF UNTIL MIDNIGHT CENTRAL TIME TONIGHT IF YOU USE THIS LINK
At the 25% discount, it works out to be about 2.8 cents per mile (inclusive of taxes) so its still below the magical .03 cpm that we all like to see. Just remember, these are not elite qualifying miles —just miles towards award ticket redemption. If you are 10,000 miles short of that elusive first or business class ticket, this would be a good time to get the miles you need.
