(See update at bottom)
United Airlines is running a 20% off — or more — “sale” on Mileage Plus Saver Awards for travel between August 18 through November 18.
Saver Awards only, not Standard. Economy class only, not first or business. United or United Express only, not Star Alliance partners. But if those conditions meet your needs, and the dates work, go ahead and burn some miles at favorable rates.
(Updated) That means 20,000 miles for a domestic ticket (instead of 25,000). 30K miles for a mainland to Hawaii ticket (instead of 40K). 25K to the Caribbean, 44K to Europe, 50K to Asia, and 64K to Australia. It’s almost like rolling their redemption chart back in time…
Will American, Delta, and others match? Stay tuned!
Hat tip to Gary Leff for this.
UPDATE: Now that it’s been leaked all over the internet, United puts up a link. Book between July 15 and July 24, 2009.
UPDATE 2: The sale is even better than originally posted. 20% and up discounts. E.g., flights to Hawaii are 30K instead of 32K as posted earlier. 25% off Hawaii, 28.5% off Caribbean, 23% off Asia. Nice sale. Original post is corrected to reflect correct #s.
