Update: This offer ends tonight!


United is offering discounted saver economy awards between the US48 and Australia, French Polynesia, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, or Taiwan for 40K miles each way.

That was the typical rate before the May devaluation, though now those flights normally cost 45K (French Polynesia) or 55K (Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, or Taiwan) miles each way.

Travel at the discounted rate must be booked by 8/19 at 11:59pm CT for travel through 12/10.

I’d recommend using United’s legacy award search calendar.

United no longer charges any award redeposit cancellation fees, so you’ll get your miles and taxes back if you cancel anytime before departure!

While this sale is only for economy travel, United now typically offers cash upgrade options after purchase. The upgrade fees are variable, but if you don’t like them you can always cancel.

As United always allows on international round-trip tickets, you can book a free stopover and open jaws. Learn more here.

CLASSIC DEAL MY KNISH

Thank you Dan, I saved 15,000 points on existing reward travel by rebooking.

Is it possible to take advantage of this with a premium economy or business class ticket or is this strictly for economy?

AE

Not the right place, but: Chase Offers just popped up for 5% or 10% back on Walmart spend.

More unrelated news: Apparently American Airlines sued Skipplaged this week for the service it provides. From the NY Post:

American sued Skiplagged Inc. in federal court in Fort Worth, Texas, this week, accusing the website of deception. It threatened to cancel every ticket that Skiplagged has sold.

In the lawsuit, American accused Skiplagged of tricking consumers into believing they can tap “some kind of secret ‘loophole.’” American said the website poses as an ordinary consumer to buy tickets, and warns its customers not to tip off the airline about the arrangement.

American said Skiplagged, which is based in New York, has never been authorized to resell the airline’s tickets.

“Skiplagged’s conduct is deceptive and abusive,” the airline said in the lawsuit. “Skiplagged deceives the public into believing that, even though it has no authority to form and issue a contract on American’s behalf, somehow it can still issue a completely valid ticket. It cannot. Every ‘ticket’ issued by Skiplagged is at risk of being invalidated.”

They’re proud of being sued by United so this’ll probably just add another feather in that cap

Oops, disregard my previous comment. I misread.
