Promotion Code: A16300


Valid Fri., Aug. 12, 2016 - Tue., Aug. 23, 2016
Posted Tue., Aug. 9, 2016

For a limited time, enjoy a 20 percent discount on roundtrip MileagePlus Saver Awards in United Economy® when you travel within the continental U.S. and Canada, or travel between the U.S., including Hawaii and Alaska, and Canada. Book by August 23, 2016, and travel between August 23, 2016, and December 15, 2016, to take advantage of the discounted rates.

Blackout dates apply. See terms and conditions for details.

* Discounted Saver Awards listed do not include taxes and government imposed fees, including, September 11th Security Fee of $5.60 per one-way trip that does not include a government defined stopover, and international taxes and fees that may add up to $48 per ticket. Additional charges may apply for checked baggage and other optional services. Fares, fees, rules, and offers are subject to change without notice.

This table shows mileage rates for roundtrip flights. For one-way itineraries, the regular price still applies.

Book: August 9 – August 23, 2016
Travel: August 23, 2016 – December 15, 2016

T&Cs
  1. The discounted Saver Award is only valid for air travel. Tickets must be booked no later than 11:59 p.m. CT on August 23, 2016.
  2. Offer is valid for travel beginning on or after August 23, 2016, and completed on or before December 15, 2016, subject to the blackout dates listed below.

  6. The discounted Saver Award is only valid for roundtrip travel within the United States, including Hawaii and Alaska, and Canada.
  7. The discounted Saver Award is only valid for roundtrip travel in United Economy. One-way travel is still priced as a regular, non-discounted Saver Award.
  8. The discounted Saver Award is combinable with other award types as long as the itinerary is roundtrip (e.g., a member can book a Standard Award for the outbound portion of an itinerary and a Saver Award for the return portion, or vice versa) but only the flight segments purchased with a qualifying Saver Award will be eligible for a discount.
  9. For this offer, "roundtrip" is defined as travel from an origin city to a destination city with return travel ending at the origin city, and with all segments on flights operated by United Airlines. A segment is defined as one takeoff and one landing. Open-jaw itineraries within the same region do qualify for the discount. Stopovers do not qualify for this offer. A booking service charge may apply for travel booked less than 21 days before departure.
  10. Offer is available to all MileagePlus members.
  11. Award pricing is subject to change without notice.
  12. Qualifying existing award tickets may be reissued, upon request, to the award sale mileage. They are subject to the award change policy, including any applicable service fees.
  13. Passenger is responsible for all taxes, fees, baggage fees and surcharges applicable to award travel, including, with respect to government imposed taxes and fees, September 11th Security Fee of $5.60 per one-way trip that does not include a government defined stopover, US Customs, Immigration and APHIS User Fees of $17.50 for each international arrival in the U.S.; and non-U.S. government ticket taxes, fees and airport charges may add up to $275 per ticket as of January 1, 2016. Such taxes, fees and surcharges must be paid at the time of ticketing and are subject to change. Any valid unused award ticket may be returned to the MileagePlus Service Center, for a service charge, up to one year from the date of issue. Award seats are subject to availability and capacity-control restrictions apply. For more information on MileagePlus award travel visit united.com/awards.
  14. This offer is not combinable with other offers.
  15. Changes to travel itineraries are permitted in advance. Changes may be subject to additional service fees of up to $200 per ticket (based on account status at the time when the miles were redeemed).
  16. If a wholly unused ticket is exchanged for travel outside of the promotion period or travel that does not otherwise comply with the terms and conditions of this promotion, the mileage will be credited back into the member's account, subject to an applicable service charge, and a new ticket will be issued at the mileage redemption rate commensurate with the new award.
  17. If the value of a partially used ticket is applied to travel outside of the promotion period, the traveler must purchase a new one-way ticket or redeem a new one-way award at the applicable mileage-redemption rate. The unused return portion of the ticket is not valid for travel and cannot be credited back into the member's account.
  18. Redemption of additional award miles may be required if any portion of the itinerary is outside of the promotion period or does not otherwise comply with the terms and conditions of this promotion.

Awesome. Also works on the one-way routing if one of the dates is after cutoff - for example, 12/14 to 1/7 is 22.5K.

Nice.

I played around with it, and it works with multi-city booking as well.

IAH-ATL and then BOS-SFO prices at 18k. (IAH-ATL under 700 miles)

Makes sense for low season and low demand, except for the "secret" part

What's the deal with reissuing tickets? I have an IAD-HNL trip coming up that I'd like to get at the discounted rate. Think they will issue a refund for the difference?

If saver fare is available (or T fare in the case of GS) , simply cancel and rebook. No redeposit fee for GS

Thanks wcalvert! Just booked RT for 2. With the recent MP enhancements, I decided to quit chasing Plat and start burning some of my 3,000,000 miles.
