1. 20% discount on United award travel to select cities.
Valid only in select cities, and there are lots of restrictions, including a required Saturday night stay, but could be useful to some.
- Book ticket by September 19, 2011
- Travel between October 10, 2011 – December 15, 2011
- Blackout Dates: 11/18, 11/23, 11/26-11/28, 2011
- Saturday night stay required
If you have United 1K elite status, it may make sense to book these awards, even if you are not 100% sure of your travel dates) since you can always cancel them for no fee.
2. Reduced mileage awards for Citi AAdvantage credit card holders.
Lots of readers have applied for and got the Citi AAdvantage 75,000 mile credit cards.
One of the benefits of these cards is the ability to book award travel to select cities for 17,500 miles in coach instead of the regular 25,000 miles or 42,500 miles in first class instead of the regular 50,000 miles.
This is not a list of typical vacation hotspots (Kansas City, my home airport, is on the list!), but it could save you some miles if you have trips planned to cities on the list.
