United Airlines is changing the way you earn and use miles. Beginning March 2015, you will earn points based on your ticket price. This is the first airline that I have seen changing the way you earn your miles. It will be interesting to see if others will follow. We have some time before this new program takes place but they do have a handy tool that will give you estimates of your miles earned based on the price of the ticket. For more information and to sample the new handy tool, please visit the MileagePlus Updates page.
