United Airlines is offering an AddMiles promotion of 1,000 bonus miles on all qualifying United, United Express or Ted roundtrip flights — for a fee. Pay an extra $20 and you can receive 1,000 bonus miles in addition to the miles you would normally earn for the flight. You can register online and pay the $20 per bonus on all qualifying roundtrips completed by Dec. 31, 2007, and the offer can be combined with other bonus mile offers.

In the normal channels to purchase 1,000 miles from Mileage Plus, it will cost you $64.57, which includes taxes and a $35 transaction fee, so the bonus mile offer is comparatively a good deal.
This offer is new to Mileage Plus, but WorldPerks has been offering the same deal through its SuperSize bonus for members who purchase roundtrip flights on Northwest Airlines, Northwest Airlink or KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. WorldPerks members will earn an additional 1,000 bonus miles when paying a $20 fee through the end of the year. Visit http://www.insideflyer.com/link/?586
