United Eliminating Award Charts: From MileagePlus To MileageMinus?

United announced some changes today to their MileagePlus scheme and it’s likely that it’ll turn out to be extremely negative. For starters, they’re eliminating their award chart for all flights on and after November 15, 2019.

Leveraging the United Excursionist Perk to save miles

The other day, I wrote a post about the Strengths Membership Rewards has over Ultimate Rewards. In that post, I mentioned that Chase only really has two unique airline partnerships: United and Southwest.

Since nobody else did it, I’m going to go…
