United “TWARE” Deal: 40% off to Sydney and Melbourne Between October 1 and November 30

United just announced a Twitter deal to Australia, 40% off (for real) to Australia in October and November.

These deals usually don’t last long, just a couple of hours, although at times continuing to enter the promotion code will continue to work (at times even for a couple of days!) long after the deal ‘ends’ on the landing page for the offer.

In this case, the promo code is TWRAU.

These fares do earn miles, but are not ugpradable with United 1K Systemwide vouchers.

Fares aren’t as low as a month ago when United made a similar 40% off offer, but that’s a function of the calendar — October and November are more expensive months to fly to Sydney than August/September.

  1. Hey, Gary. Do you think you can do a blog post that shows what are best types of planes to redeem rewards to fly on?– A “What’s the best metal” post.

    After following your blog the past 6 month, i have learned a great deal about what the best mileage redemption offers are, and how to maximize award travel comfort via certain airlines. However, i realized that i have no clue what the best types of commercial aircraft i should look for when redeeming airline awards. I could be looking at two award options and choose one with a silly little prop plane, b/c i don’t know which plane equals which level of comfort/amenities. What would you rank as your top 5 type of aircraft to redeem on and why.

    Keep up the interesting posts!
