Starting today, United Airlines Mileage Plus® members can top off their account by buying up to 15,000 bonus miles online. Members may visit the web site, http://www.ualmiles.com, and purchase Personal Miles® for $.025 per mile (plus an excise tax and processing fee). These miles are added to existing miles in a Mileage Plus account and may be purchased online by credit card. Customers should allow 2-4 weeks for the mileage to be credited to their account.
“Personal Miles enable Mileage Plus members to earn those last few miles they need for a dream vacation or weekend getaway,” said Patricia Mash, president of Mileage Plus Marketing, Inc. “With the Personal Miles promotion, our members can redeem award travel faster and easier than ever before.”
In addition to Personal Miles, businesses may also purchase Electronic Reward Miles® online at http://www.ualmiles.com as a promotional incentive for customers or employees. Starting today, businesses may buy a minimum of 250,000 miles for $.02 per mile (plus excise tax and processing fee) and electronically transfer the miles to employee or client accounts.
“Electronic Reward Miles offer businesses an effective way to motivate employees and stimulate sales,” Mash said. “Companies may use them for programs such as employee incentives, sales and marketing tools, client/customer awards and charitable contributions.”
