United Airlines is holding another MileagePlus mileage promotion: program members can redeem miles until November 20, 2023, and receive a 100% bonus or a 50% discount.
The miles must be purchased within the annual limit of 225,000 miles.
Main terms of the promotion
- The offer is valid from November 3, 2023, to November 20, 2023.
- You can buy MileagePlus miles by following the link.
- The minimum number of points to purchase is 2,000.
- It’s also specified that purchased miles do not contribute towards MileagePlus Premier status.
How bonuses are awarded
The promotion offers an increasing bonus scale based on the number of miles purchased. Buying between 7,000 to 44,000 miles yields a 50% bonus while purchasing 45,000 to 87,500 miles grants a 100% bonus.
How can I earn extra points when making a purchase?
Purchases made with the United MileagePlus card are recognized as United® purchases, allowing cardholders to earn additional miles for every dollar spent. The transaction will appear as ‘Points United Miles’ when using Powered by Points for the purchase.
Miles are usually credited to your MileagePlus account immediately after the transaction is completed, although some transactions may take up to 72 hours.
Conclusion: is it profitable to buy miles with this offer?
If you buy miles with a 100% bonus, the cost of a mile will be 1.75 cents per mile, instead of the usual price without the promotion – 3.5 cents per mile.
If you don’t have enough miles for a particular redemption, now is the best time to buy them. But we don’t recommend buying them unnecessarily, so consider other ways to earn MileagePlus miles.
