If you’re ready to cross the South Pacific off the bucket list now is your chance because United Airlines is having a flash sale on award flights to Tahiti. To get in on this deal you’ll have to book by today February 8, 2019, at 11:59 PM local time of the originating airport.
The awards are discounted for everyone, but if you have United Airlines elite status or a United Airlines credit card you’ll get a better deal. I recently applied for the United℠ Explorer Business Card since it has an all-time high bonus and having the card could get me an extra 7,000 mile discount.
Up to 40% Off United Airlines Awards to Tahiti
The discount applies only to round-trip coach Saver Awards from the mainland US, Alaska, or Canada to Papeete, Tahiti. Also, you must travel between March 26 and May 30, 2019.
If you don’t have any elite status or United Airlines credit card you’ll get a 20% discount. Having a Chase United Airlines credit card will get you an extra 10% (7,000 mile) discount, some cards that qualify for the discount include:
- United℠ Explorer Card
- United℠ Explorer Business Card
- United MileagePlus® Club Business Card
- United MileagePlus® Club Card
There are two tiers of discounts for having elite status. You’ll get an addition 5% (3,500 miles) off if you have Silver or Gold status. Or with Premier Platinum or Premier 1K status you’ll get a discount of 10% (7,000 miles) total.
If you don’t have the United Airlines miles in your account, remember that you can transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to United Airlines instantly.
If you already have booked an award flight to Tahiti that qualifies for the discount, you can rebook at the lower rate, but you’ll have to pay any award change fees that apply.
