Purchase United MileagePlus Miles: Receive A Mystery Bonus Up To 100%


Through 12/19/2016, you may get up to 100% bonus miles when you purchase United MileagePlus miles. This is tiered promotion, meaning you need to buy at least 30,000 miles to get the 100% bonus. I have received 75% bonus, so it is a decent deal, but not great to jump in to the deal.

If you buy the maximum allowed 75,000 miles, you will get 150,000 miles for $2,821.88 which equates to 1.88 cents/mile.
