Or, consider other cards for 50,000 more miles or points that transfer into United miles with additional flexibility for your everyday spending.
Reward nights start at 10,000 points. Free anniversary night (no points needed) good at any IHG hotel (Intercontinental, Crowne Plaza, more).
$1,000 toward travel or transfer to United, Southwest, and more.
If you’re looking to get good value out of your United miles, here’s a new option.
Air Canada is now running widebody Boeing 787 aircraft daily from Newark to Vancouver, and Business Class is fitted with full lie flat seats for extra comfort like the ones pictured above.
And you can book it for just 25,000 United miles one way.
Award space is decent.
Here’s space next Spring for two passengers. The dates with blue dots in the calendar have space for two people in Business Class on the nonstop flight.
Air Canada wants to charge over $1,700 for this flight if you book in cash, so getting it for 25,000 miles is a great way to use your United miles.
I’s a great way to see a great city – Vancouver.
And it’s also a new piece of the puzzle to get to Australia from the East Coast, letting you connect to Air Canada flights from Vancouver to Sydney and Brisbane in a lie flat seat all the way through. United MileagePlus charges 80,000 miles one way for a Business Class ticket from the U.S. to Australia, while if you paid in cash it would run $5,000 or more round trip.
Air Canada also offers lie flat seats in Business Class on its Toronto – Los Angeles and San Francisco routes.
