40,000 United Miles For A NYC New Year’s Eve Event

New Year's EveI recently received an e-mail invite for a special NYC New Years Eve event due to being “a valued United MileagePlus Visa cardmember“.

This is really an offer to purchase a ticket to the event using United miles and not really what I’d consider an invite.

FYI: the offer is only open to Visa cardmembers who received an e-mail event invitation…

The event takes place on NYE, December 31 at Charlie Palmer Steak.

There are two options for this offer:

Gold Ticket: 40,000 miles, includes entry for 2

From 9PM-1AM, the package includes:

  • Cocktails, heavy hors d’oeuvres and Champagne toast
  • Live DJ
  • Photo booth
  • New Year’s Eve themed party favors
  • Taxes and gratuities for food and beverage

The offer can be purchased here.

Platinum Ticket: Bid starts at 35,000 miles, entry for 2

From 7PM-1am, the package includes everything above as well as:

  • Four-course seated dinner by Chef Javier Lopez
  • Wine pairing with dinner

You can bid on this package here.

Final Thoughts:

I find NYE to be an extremely overrated night. While these packages might not be a bad deal for what’s typically a pricey night to go out, I think I can definitely make better use of my United miles for a future trip.

What do you think of this exclusive New Year’s Eve event offer from United?
