Good evening everyone. I was going through all the Buy Miles & Points links on my page and spotted this offer for United Airlines. You can purchase United Airlines miles for up to a 100% bonus, if you purchase a minimum of 30,000 miles. This offer is only around for a few more days and expires on July 26, so you better act fast if you are interested. Warning: you should only buy miles if you have an immediate use for them, do not buy miles speculatively.
Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. I recently went through all the links on my buy miles / points page and noticed that a few promos are ending in the next week or two. I don’t recommend buying miles and points unless you have an award ticket or award night stay in mind, but if you do need some extra miles / points, it’s better to buy them when they are at a discount or offering a bonus. Without further ado, here are the 4 promos ending in the next few days.
United Airlines seems to run buy miles promos often. A 100% bonus was the highest I’ve seen recently, so an 85% bonus is almost as good. This is a tiered bonus, so your price per mile (PPM) will depend on how many miles you purchase.
I swear this happened the other day because I could not make this stuff up, even if I tried. And it’s by far the number one mistake people make in gathering miles and points. I’m in line to pay for groceries and the man in front of me pulls out a credit card to pay for his items. I have a curious nature, so I always look to see what credit card people use for their expenses. I contorted my body in several different directions in order to catch the name on the card and it was a, drum roll please… TJ Maxx Credit Card. Who knew TJ Maxx even had a credit card? And I’m not judging people who shop at TJ Maxx. Observing this man using his TJ Maxx Credit Card at a grocery store reminded me of all the other friends and family members I have who use these affinity cards. Using affinity cards doesn’t make sense if the goal is to travel more for less. Credit cards that accrue flexible points and miles so they can be used on various airlines and at multiple hotel chains makes much much much better sense! Continue reading
Updated at 3:15pm PT on 6/12: The 100% bonus on United Airlines miles is gone, but there are a few 70% bonus packages still left.

Good afternoon everyone. I have 2 buy miles/points flash sale deals to share. United Airlines is offering 20,000 bonus miles when you purchase one of their 20,000 mile packages. IHG is also offering a 100% bonus on the number of IHG Points you purchase, with a minimum purchase of 5,000 IHG Points. If you are short on a few United Airlines miles or IHG Points for your next redemption, take a look at these promos and take advantage of the deals. I have added both offers to our Buy Miles/Points Page.
Updated at 10pm PT on 5/10: It looks like some readers are getting up to 100% bonus offers from United Airlines.
Good afternoon everyone. United Airlines has a great buy miles promo currently running through May 24. It is a mystery offer, so depending on your account, you may see an offer for up to 75% bonus, or you might see a higher or lower offer. I checked my family’s United Airlines account and 75% bonus was the highest offer I saw, but it is possible that there are higher bonuses too. If you are a few hundred / thousand United Airlines miles away from redeeming for an award ticket, it might be a great idea to buy the remaining United Airlines miles. This promo runs for 2 more weeks and ends on May 24, so you have 2 weeks to decide. If you want to see other buy miles and hotel points promos, click here.
