Should I Get 30% Bonus Miles or 50% Bonus Miles…Hmmmm…

This is a tough one. Which of these two offers should I take advantage of?

The email I received for 30% bonus miles when I buy Continental miles?

Or the email I received for 50% bonus miles when I buy United miles?


If you guessed “Neither” you’d be correct. At $376 for 10,000 miles (or 13,000 miles or 15,000 miles), it’s still a bad deal.


  1. Wow… terrible. Surprised they didn’t catch that.

    • I’m not sure it’s a mistake. I’m guessing they’re testing the offer (the United email said you had to use the link provided, though that link didn’t work). Still, it’s an odd customer experience.

  2. Hahaha that’s quite funny!
