    Grant, the buy miles page is a nice resource, i’ve bookmarked it now. Would you add aeroplan link to the page? Thanks for everything you do!

    I received a top-level 75% offer on United miles, but a max purchase of 85k instead of 88. Seems to be personalized to a degree.

    Got 75% bonus miles offer with United:

    Buy 5,000 – 14,000 miles | Get 25% bonus
    Buy 15,000 – 29,000 miles | Get 50% bonus
    Buy 30,000 – 85,000 miles | Get 75% bonus

    But still, that’s 2.15 CPM which is very high unless you want to top off for a specific award in mind. I won’t be buying at this rate.


Got something to say?
