When United sells miles directly, the lowest cost we typically see per purchased mile is 1.88 cents. That’s the best case scenario, when they’re offering a 100% bonus, and typically requires purchasing a significant number of miles.

However, at the moment there’s a roundabout way to buy United miles even cheaper. Through June 30, 2018, United is offering a 50% bonus when you convert IHG Rewards Club points into United MileagePlus miles.

Ordinarily IHG Rewards Club points convert into United miles at a 5:1 ratio (10,000 IHG Rewards Club points convert into 2,000 United MileagePlus miles), though at the moment they’re offering a 50% bonus, meaning that 10,000 IHG Rewards Club points convert into 3,000 United miles.
