United 20% Off Europe Award Sale

United is offering a 20% off discount on Europe economy award tickets for specific destinations.

Book by December 4 for travel between January 12 and March 12 on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday and you’ll save 20% on awards to Amsterdam, Brussels, Frankfurt, Geneva, Hamburg, London, Munich, Paris and Zurich.

Only United flights are eligible, and travel must originate in the U.S. (excluding Hawaii) or Canada. Open jaws are permitted but stopovers are not allowed.

This sale makes a 60,000 mile roundtrip award just 48,000 miles.

You can also combine a saver award with a standard award, taking the savings one-way and paying extra miles the other, though I don’t generally recommend this approach.

There are fewer date restrictions than a similar Delta offering but also fewer destinations. Not something to get excited over, but worth knowing about if you’re interested in using United miles for a roundtrip to Europe.

  1. This works with a ZFV Philadelphia 30th street station ticket (even though it’s not a United Plane) so there is a cheap option to get to EWR from Philadelphia and still use the discounted mile award.
