Title: Hot! Use UA miles to buy amazon gift cards at 1.82 cents per mile
Post by: sruly on June 21, 2015, 01:05:07 AM
Download the united mileage plus x app.
I just ordered a $500 amazon gift card for 27,419 UA miles.

No min so you can drain any small balances you have or buy as many as you want in $500 increments.

I'm leaning towards price mistake, a Gap card is 80k for $500.

Not at a good rate

Even at 90% (very low) you're still getting 1.638cpp. 

Can't?

I was warned. Also some might not wanna risk.

Obviously going through a broker will net you much less.

You definitely can do that, someone asked if resellers buy them and I answered that question. I'm sure you can sell it here for 90%

This sounds better then it actually is, you're getting .018 pp but loosing out on .015 (Amex Everyday) on your next Amazon purchase which is worth more (http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/60259),
Except if you have a lot of extra UA laying around.

Don't know what you're talking about.
Are you actually saying that using gift cards for my next $100 order where I lose out on 150 MR makes this not such a great deal?

This is an awesome deal, I think you are a bit confused.
This is only a bad deal if you have your business class tickets waiting to be booked, and you get a GC instead.

If you value UA at 1.3 then you're gonna break even (or maybe loss a bit, depending on how much you value MR, too tired to calculate now).
