This Cyber Monday, United is offering a 20% savings on award travel to Hawaii. A roundtrip Saver Award ticket in economy will be 36,000 miles (regularly 45,000 miles) for travel between January 7 and March 10. Awards must be booked by December 8.
United offers nonstop service to the following destinations in Hawaii: Honolulu (HNL), Maui (OGG), Lihue (LIH), Kona (KOA) and Hilo (ITO)
Of course, a 20% savings is a nice surprise, especially if you are based on the east coast, and if you have a balance of United miles that you were planning to use to travel to Hawaii anyway, but it is not the best deal.
Some better deals to Hawaii in other programs are:
- Korean Air Miles (On Delta): 25,000 miles roundtrip in economy/45,000 roundtrip in first
- Singapore Miles (on United): 17,500 miles each way in economy/30,000 each way in flatbed first class (other notes: best availability, no close-in fees, $20 to change/$30 to cancel)
- Air France Miles (on Delta): 15,000 miles one way in economy/30,000 one way in first
- Avios (on American or Alaska): 12,500 Avios one way in economy (no close-in fees)
