3 Buy Miles/Points Promos Ending Soon: American (50K Bonus), United (70% Bonus + Sweepstakes Draw) & JetBlue (50% Bonus)

Good evening everyone.  I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found a few new offers.  Always check the math to make sure that buying miles & points makes sense for you.  Do not buy miles & points speculatively unless you have a use in mind.  With that said, here are buy miles/points promos for American Airlines, United Airlines, and JetBlue that are ending in the next 7 days.  First up, American Airlines is running a promotion where you can get up to 50,000 bonus miles, depending on the number of American Airlines AAdvantage Miles you purchase.  This offer ends on January 31.

Here are the complete terms & conditions of the American Airlines promo:

AAdvantage members must purchase at least 5,000 AAdvantage miles or more in a single transaction from the Buy or Gift Miles program from 7:00:00am CT January 7, 2019 to 11:59:59pm CT January 31, 2019, to be eligible to earn bonus miles. The applicable bonus miles are awarded to the recipient for Gift Miles transactions. Bonus miles earned do not count toward the annual purchase limits.

The miles purchased with the Buy Miles program and received with the Gift Miles program do not count towards AAdvantage Gold, AAdvantage Platinum, AAdvantage Platinum Pro, AAdvantage Executive Platinum or AAdvantage Million MilerSM status qualification. Transactions are nonrefundable and nonreversible. The miles successfully purchased or transferred usually post to the designated account right away, but please allow up to 8 hours for processing. Each AAdvantage member is limited to purchasing or receiving in a calendar year, a combined total of no more than 150,000 AAdvantage miles. Miles purchased through the Buy Miles program or received as a gift through the Gift Miles program count against this total. A confirmation email will be sent to the primary buyer/gifter and/or recipient, using the email address(es) associated with the AAdvantage account(s) and any additional email address provided. AAdvantage accounts less than 30 days old are not permitted to Buy or Gift Miles. Prices are in U.S. dollars and do not include applicable taxes. The promotion, pricing and/or fee to Buy, Gift or Share Miles is subject to change without notice. Your credit card company may add a currency conversion fee.
