What can you get for 75,000 miles?
United has a great mileage program. While it won’t always provide astronomical value, it’s a great currency and consistently ranks near the top for airline loyalty. There are a few things I love about the MileagePlus, but the best part is the Excursionist Perk. Although not quite as good as United’s old routing rules, the Excursionist Perk still allows you to get and extra one-way/open jaw flight in the middle of your roundtrip. So if you book a roundtrip from Newark to Brussels, for example, you can put an extra city in your itinerary at no cost. A roundtrip from Newark to Brussels costs the same as a trip from Newark to Brussels, then Brussels to Paris, then Paris to Newark.
United offers one way flights in within the continental US for as low as 10,000 or 12,500 miles (depending on the distance). That’ up to 7 one-way flights with this bonus! Or if you’d rather go big…book a one-way business fare to Asia or Europe with these miles! United also shines as a Star Alliance partner. There are some fantastic uses of United miles for partner awards all over the globe.
Ok, what’s the catch?
Let’s be real, there’s always a catch…
- Remember, the United Business card will be subject to Chase’s 5/24 rule!
- You might not be able to (or might not want to) open a business card.
If either of those conditions apply to you, you’ll be out of luck on this particular offer.
