What’s the deal with the United award sale?

United Airlines currently has 20% off round-trip domestic economy redemptions when you book by August 23rd for travel August 23rd through December 15th, 2016. The sale hasn’t yet been announced publicly for some reason…

With this offer you can redeem your miles for a short-haul flight under 700 miles for 8,000 MileagePlus miles (instead of 10,000 miles) each way, for instance, but you need to book a round-trip to get the discount; it’s not available for one-way awards or multi-trip itineraries. It’s only valid on Saver domestic flights, but while it earlier seemed to be applicable to any domestic flights, it may only be for select journeys, so check your route as soon as possible.

How do I get the United award sale deal?

Log in to your United MileagePlus account and check the award availability calendar. Then book your return flights by August 23rd, 2016.

What else do I need to know about the United award sale deal?

Whether United forgot to advertise this or it’s a glitch in the system that shouldn’t have been found yet, it’s already working for readers, so grab 20% off your award tickets now!

The blackout dates seem to be November 22nd, 23rd, 26th, 27th and 28th, 2016.
