Thoughts on buying UA miles?
Got an email today from UA. 100% bonus on buying miles (if you buy 50K to 75K). The overall cost ends up being 1.88cpm. And they are running a sweepstakes to win 250K, 100K or 50K when you buy. Is this a good deal? UA miles are still relatively useful.
It all depends on how much cash you have to spare and what you can redeem them at. I certainly wouldn’t buy speculatively at that price given that you can MS those for close to 1c or lower.
