United is offering an award sale with 25% off saver award flights for Chase United MileagePlus card holders or 20% off for non-cardholders to several mountain destinations for travel between June 9th and June 27th. The terms state that you can call and change existing award bookings to get the sale rates on these awards, so whether you already have a trip planned or are eyeing a trip to the great outdoors, this sale might save you some miles.
- Either 20% off (non-cardholders) or 25% off (Chase United cardholders) award flights to the following destinations:
- Aspen, Colorado (ASE)
- Bozeman, Montana (BZN)
- Vail, Colorado (EGE)
- Gunnison, Colorado (GUC)
- Steamboat Springs, Colorado (HDN)
- Jackson Hole, Wyoming (JAC)
- Montrose, Colorado (MTJ)
- Must book by May 21, 2018 for travel between June 9, 2018 and June 27, 2018
- Must be round trip economy class
- Discount only applies to saver-level awards
- Full terms at the bottom
This sale isn’t bad if you have a trip in mind as it rivals Avianca’s pricing for domestic United awards and Chase United cardholders should theoretically have access to expanded availability. Shorthaul flights (700 miles or less each way) are 15,000 miles round trip for cardholders / 16,000 miles round trip for non-cardholders and longer flights are 18,750 / 20,000 miles round trip. Keep in mind that United will also tack on a $75 close-in ticketing fee if you’re within 21 days of departure, so make sure you book ASAP for June travel.
Overall, this isn’t a bad deal if you have summer plans to one of the listed destinations and can find saver awards. Even though I have downgraded my Chase United MileagePlus card to the no-fee Chase United Mileage Plus card, I still received the 25% off discount – that’s good to know for the long haul as I won’t likely close the card since it gives me access to expanded availability and sales like this.
