United is advertising 20-25% off redemptions to Europe and Central/Southern Africa. There are a handful of restrictions: tickets must economy saver tickets, the trip must include a Saturday stay, and tickets must be booked by January 16th.
Rather oddly, they’ve further subdivided the discount into 20% off (“peak” days) and 25% off (“off-peak” days). Given we are already discussing discounted economy awards, it’s surprising that to have even further distinction in award levels in a two-tier award chart.
The bottom line? One can travel to Europe for 45k miles roundtrip in coach.
