United Selling Miles for 40% Off

United is selling miles at a 40% discount perhaps reacting to American's 40% mileage bonus from last week.  Buying miles is a great way to top off an account for an award and since many of you are probably planning travel for this summer, it might make sense to pull the trigger during the sale. 

For a primer on buying miles, read this post.

The sale ends 2/17/14 and you have to purchase 40,000 miles to get the 40% bonus.  The 40,000 miles will run you $903 and is enough to redeem for a one way first class ticket between Australia and Asia.  So not a bad deal if you have a specific redemption in mind.
