United is discounting roundtrip coach awards between the US and four destinations by 20%. Book by March 2nd and travel:
- Porto, Singapore or Sydney May 4 – June 17
- Reykjavik May 23 – June 17

While I’m not a huge fan of coach, economy redemptions can make sense using United miles because United doesn’t add fuel surcharges onto award tickets. It rarely makes sense to redeem miles in non-US programs for coach to destinations where fuel surcharges apply since you’d be paying much of the cost of the ticket even while using your miles, looking for availability, and not earning miles.
