United is offering 20% off standard awards within the United States (excluding Hawaii) and Canada this summer, which means a standard award is only 40,000 miles roundtrip. Bookings need to be made by May 18 at least 21 days prior to departure. Travel needs to be completed by October 31.
This isn’t a fantastic deal in general, but standard awards at United do have last seat availability. So if there’s absolutely no affordable way to get where you’re trying to go and there aren’t saver awards available, this is a pretty decent option.
