Mileage value becomes greater if you are booking international flights or from small domestic cities that are costly to reach UA hubs. Many travelers have learned to maximize the mileage value by being selective on when you use them. Also being 1K lets you optomize the use of your miles- we book flights with mileage, but replace them with bought flights when the prices go down. Cancelling mileage flights have no cost at 1K level, and availability of mileage flights are much better at the 1K level.
