Bottom Line

With this offer you can purchase miles for a low as ~1.88 cents/ mile. If you have a United flight to book, it would definitely be a good idea to see if purchasing miles is cheaper than paying the lowest available rate that you could book your flight/s for! You can purchase miles with this bonus only through May 27, 2016, so if you need to top off your account or have an United flight to book, this is a good opportunity to purchase some miles with up to 100% bonus!
