United Airlines announced yesterday its award sale to Europe is now open to all MileagePlus members.
Beginning yesterday, June 20, 2016, and running through June 28, 2016, roundtrip economy class saver award tickets to European destinations from the U.S. and Canada (excluding Hawaii) are discounted by 15,000 miles.
Which means a roundtrip saver award ticket will cost only 45,000 MileagePlus miles.
The discounted rate is for travel between August 23, 2016 and March 31, 2017. Which gives MileagePlus members a large period of time to take advantage of a really good award rate for travel to Europe.
To put into perspective, signing up for the United MileagePlus Explorer credit card would give you 50,000 miles after meeting the minimum spend, more than enough for that discounted roundtrip award ticket to Europe.
Unfortunately, it’s too late to get the sign-up bonus and book the award before the booking deadline, next Tuesday, June 28th.
But it’s not too late to get the United miles for the next award sale.
As with any deal, there is “fine print,” which can be viewed here.
If you have enough United miles in your account, and a desire to visit Europe, this just may be the time to make it happen.
Are you planning on taking advantage of this deal?
