I haven’t seen this sale advertised anywhere, so I don’t know the full terms, but from trial and error it seems that the award sale is as follows:
-US/Canada short-haul saver round-trips (under 700 miles) will be 16K instead of 20K miles.
-US/Canada saver round-trips will be 20K instead of 25K miles.
-Alaska saver round-trips will be 28K instead of 35K miles.
-Hawaii saver round-trips will be 36K instead of 45K miles.
-Travel must be booked 14 days in advance.
-Book travel by August 23.
-Travel is valid between August 23-December 15. If you fly one leg within the promo timeframe and one leg outside of that timeframe you will still save 20% on the leg that falls within the promo timeframe. In other words, a domestic award from December 15-19 would be 22.5K miles.
-Blackout dates: November 22, 23, 26, 27, 28
-Not valid for one-way travel or stopover travel.
-Valid for coach travel only.
Be sure you are logged into United.com if you are elite or if you have select United cards with an annual fee like the Chase United Explorer card, as that gives you greatly expanded saver coach award space and last-seat standard award space in every class. It will only be reflected in the award calendar if you are logged in and you will only get free checked bags and priority boarding if you use that card.
