Buying United mileage miles
United Airlines has a 70% bonus offer currently. Buying miles with a bonus reward costs me 2.21 cents per mile. This is how I usually supplement my Mileage account so my wife and I can fly business class to Europe once a year. I never use United miles for domestic and have read that this is a relatively acceptable rate. Thus, a business class ticket for me is a discounted ticket but not completely “free” ticket as I can never spent enough to accumulate the 600,000 miles I need to fly us both on business class from San Diego to Europe. Is this a good offer??
It is a good offer, especially considering it sounds like you have an immediate use for the miles
