Just type in your dates and the discount will apply automatically as long as you are traveling on valid dates (see rules below). Select flights and continue to see the discount.
Flights must have a Continental or United flight number, so flights on Virgin Atlantic for example with a Continental flight number will qualify.
You can transfer points from your Sapphire Preferred or Ink Bold cards to Continental (or from Freedom or Ink Classic cards if you have or know anyone that has a Sapphire Preferred or Ink Bold card). And of course you can transfer United miles to Continental miles for this promotion (and to extend the life of your miles).
