Via Reddit, United Airlines will give you up to a 100% bonus when you buy or gift miles through August 15, 2016.
The minimum purchase is 5,000 miles, and you can buy up to 75,000 miles per account through this promotion.
Not everyone receives the exact same offer. So you’ll have to enter your United Airlines account details to see the exact bonuses you could earn!

Million Mile Secrets reader Teri commented:
We want to visit Italy and France in September 2017 for our 30th anniversary. And because we’ve already saved some United Airlines miles, we plan to fly with United Airlines or a Star Alliance partner.
But we’ve also earned miles & points with our Chase Sapphire Preferred and Capital One Venture cards.
So, how do we combine the miles & points from these different programs in order to book our award tickets with United Airlines miles? And are there any other cards you’d recommend we get?
Great question, Teri!
One of my favorite things about miles & points is showing others how to get Big Travel. And I especially love that Teri plans to use miles & points to help celebrate an anniversary!
