United Airlines Award Sale to Hawaii and Popular Ski Destinations

Winter has now OFFICIALLY arrived.  Whether you plan to embrace it or flee, United Airlines miles will help you meet your goal.  You can now fly to the following Hawaiian destinations for between 27,000 and 36,000 miles round-trip:

  • Honolulu
  • Maui
  • Kauai
  • Kona
  • Hilo

And you can fly between these ski destinations for between 12,000 and 20,000 miles round-trip:

  • Aspen
  • Bozeman
  • Vail
  • Gunnison/Crested Butte
  • Hayden
  • Jackson Hole
  • Montrose
  • Sun Valley/Hailey
  • Mammoth

Here’s a graph to help you understand what you can expect to pay.

As you can see, prices depend on if you have United Airlines elite status and/or a United Airlines credit card.

For example, destinations that are 700 miles or less from your home airport will cost between 14,000 and 16,000 award miles for folks who have a United Airlines credit card like the United℠ Explorer Card.  If you do NOT have a United Airlines card, you’ll spend up to 18,000 miles.

The great news is that you can fly from anywhere in mainland US to these destinations and qualify for the discounted award price.  So you can fly from the East Coast to Hawaii for as little as 27,000 miles round-trip.  Though most of us don’t have United Airlines elite status, so we can expect as little as 31,500 miles round-trip.

Click here to see the deal.  And as always, do the math before you book to make sure cash price isn’t worth paying to and save your United Airlines miles for a later date.

What a fantastic sale! Too bad I already have trips to Israel, Norway and Ireland coming up this year or I’d snatch up tickets to Hawaii from my small town airport for only 18,000 miles!!
