United Discounts Award Travel (Act by July 24)

Filed under: Mileage Plus,United Airlines — Chris @ 8:29 pm

United Airlines discounted the number of miles needed for free coach class trips this week.

I think this is an example of just how far airlines are willing to go to keep seats filled on their planes….they are discounting fares AND  rewards.  Great news for business travelers who want to use their miles to for late summer vacation or fall business trips.

United’s deal is limited to flights between August and November, and the discounts are really meaningful. For example, you can get a free round trip from the mainland to Hawaii for just 30,000 miles, down from 40,000. Fly to Europe for 44,000 miles down from 55,000. A domestic award trip is down to 20,000 miles from 25,000.

United Round Trip Award Discounts:
•    North America:  was 25,000 miles, now 20,000
•    Hawaii    : was 40,000 miles, now 30,000
•    Europe: was 55,000, now 44,000
•    Australia: was 80,000, now 64,000

Act fast: You must book your trip between July 15 and July 24 for travel between August 18 and November 18.
