United has come out with a new buy miles bonus offer for the month of January that will vary by member. I received an offer for up to 75% bonus miles while Lucky at OMaaT is showing others getting a 100% bonus. I’m not a buyer at 75% nor should most others be unless you are able to redeem for an award above your purchase price of 1.9 cents each (which in reality it isn’t hard to redeem at a higher CPM when redeeming for premium classes) but if you get the 100% bonus you have a CPM of 1.75 cents which opens up many more possible redemption opportunities.

Offer details:
Up to an 100% bonus when you buy MileagePlus miles. Bonus varies by member from 75% to 100%. Buy miles here. Until Jan 31, 21

75% bonus:
3,000 – 14,000 miles = 30% bonus
15,000 – 39,000 miles = 50% bonus
40,000+ miles = 75% Bonus

100% bonus:
3,000 – 14,000 miles = 30% bonus
15,000 – 39,000 miles = 60% bonus

  1. Question: You wrote here “Bonus varies by member from 75% to 100%”. Also when I entered into the link you provided, using my account credentials on UA – it gave me only options of up to 75%.
    So: What differs one person’s account from another, as far as eligibility for the 100%, and what can be done in my case (where it only shows eligibility for up to 75%)? Thanks.

    1. I wish I could answer that as to who gets the 100% or the 75%. I only received 75% as well. If I was to wager a guess the 100% is being sent to those who have bought miles in the past but like I said that’s only a guess!
