Kudos to View From the Wing for Finding this Deal
In celebration of it’s 90th anniversary, United Airlines is giving away 90,000 miles to 90 lucky winners. Entry is simple, just fill out a short form (the screenshot is below). You must enter by midnight (EST) on April 25st! The winners will be notified on April 27th. After entering the form, you’ll be directed to a pretty cool history of United Airlines.
There are many awesome ways to use 90,000 United miles. Here is a link to United’s award chart that lists the number of miles required to fly between different regions of the world. Personally, I would consider these options:
- 25,000 miles: one-way economy flight on United’s pacific island hopper that flies from Hawaii to Guam.
- 30,000 miles: one-way coach flight from the United States to Santorini, an island off the coast of Greece. You could snag a Lufthansa business class seat instead for 70,000 miles.
- In addition, you can take advantage of United’s generous round-trip award flight policies that allow one stop over and an open jaw. An open jaw occurs when you fly into one city (say London) but then you return from a different city (say Paris). This schedule would allow you to travel from the US and visit London and Paris on a single award flight. You could simply take the train to travel between the two cities.
