Hello,
I have some United airlines miles, which I need to sell (e.g on ebay).
Whats the best/safe way to sell it?
Whats the approximate price per mile?
Thank you.

Generally, you can't sell them as it violates the terms and conditions of all frequent flyer programs to sell your miles. You can buy tickets for others with your and then see if they will pay you a discounted fare or some other compensation.

However, there are brokers that exist for this purpose. They generally have you transfer your points into a separate account and only pay you a fraction of what they are worth.

These brokers then sell discounted business class tickets to unknowing people most of the time using your miles. If the flight is cancelled or has another issue, it could still come back on you.
