American recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of the launch of AAdvantage on 5/1/81. United matched that game changing program in just a matter of days with Mileage Plus in 1981 and they now have an excellent award sale to celebrate.
- Purchase on 5/6
- Travel between 6/1-8/31
- Round-trip required
- Saturday night stay required
United no longer charges change fees for award tickets originating the US, though you would pay the difference in fare if you make a change. They also waive cancel and redeposit fees for awards cancelled 30+ days before departure and you can always change to that timeframe as long as it’s done before the time of departure…

Award availability is excellent if you have a United credit card. For example here is a month-long look at Newark to Tel Aviv for 20K miles each way if you have a United card:
You can take advantage of this even without a United card, but availability is much more scarce:
That’s why having a United card is an essential part of the Chase Quinfecta to make your Ultimate Rewards points more valuable.
