August 25. As of August 25, 2021, United MileagePlus is launching a new Money + Miles ticketing option:

  • This allows customers to use a combination of money and miles to make ticket purchases.
  • Customers can redeem as few as 500 miles to reduce the cost of their ticket.
  • This new payment method will roll out slowly, and will initially only appear in a handful of domestic markets, when booking through united.com or the United app.

Personally I haven’t yet been able to find any markets where this redemption option is possible, though please report back if you see any. As United describes this in a memo to employees, this is intended to “allow customers to use miles much sooner than ever before,” and means customers “no longer need to save miles for years.”
