This week's Thursday Giveaway offers a chance to win 20,000 United miles. This fall, United is running a buy miles promotion, where MileagePlus Members can earn up to 85% bonus miles with purchase. The exact bonus varies between members, so visit United's website for more information. Keep in mind that you can also earn bonus miles on hotel stays and flights this month with Marriott and United's Double Stay, Double Go partnership.

20,000 United miles can go a long way, getting you a one-way flight within the continental US, Canada and Mexico. The miles will be deposited into your own United account, so you can combine them with your existing balance for a redemption. You can also earn miles with the United MileagePlus Explorer or Chase Sapphire Preferred card (after transferring Ultimate Rewards points).

Earn up to 85% bonus miles with the latest buy miles promo from United.

TPG values United miles at 1.5 cents apiece, so you can earn quite a bit of value from the sign-up offers from both of these cards. Of course, with specific redemptions in mind, you can get significantly more value when redeeming for premium-cabin flights that would normally cost many thousands of dollars.

You must enter the giveaway below no later than 11:59pm ET on Monday, November 9.

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
