United MileaegPlus has been quietly offering a mileage sale on Star Alliance and other partner awards for the last few days.
It lasts until February 28 and you can take advantage of the discount for travel to and from all of these regions:
Travel to and from the U.S. is highlighted in red, and includes travel in Business Class.
Basically anywhere in Europe or Asia except Japan qualifies. The Middle East, Africa, and Southwest Pacific / Australia are excluded.
The very best deal is travel to and from Europe in Business Class for just 115,000 miles roundtrip, a savings of 25,000 miles versus the regular price which we talked about earlier this week.
There is lots of award space on Star Alliance partners this summer, and this is a great price with no fuel surcharges. The timing couldn’t be better for planning summer travel, so get in on it now before the award seats you want are taken.
Airlines you can travel on include:
As a reminder, Chase Ultimate Rewards points like those earned with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card transfer instantly, 1:1 into United miles.
And if you’re looking for Singapore Airlines award space, you won’t find it on United.com. You’ll have to call in to check, or use the Air Canada Aeroplan website to check for award seats, among other options.
