Don’t Book This Promotion

If you have United miles, this may be a good deal. If you have Ultimate Rewards, do not transfer them to United miles to book this deal. You can always book roundtrip Saver award space on United to Hawaii for 35,000 Singapore miles, which is a transfer partner of Ultimate Rewards, Membership Rewards, ThankYou Points, and Starpoints.

How the Promotion Works If You Have United Miles

The promotion is hard-coded into the search results at, so as long as you search roundtrip for travel dates between April 14 and May 19, Mondays through Thursdays will display 20% off–18,000 miles each way.

I performed some dummy searches between Washington DC and Honolulu, and as I expected, award space was excellent as it usually is to Hawaii during the Spring. All green and yellow days below have Saver award space for two passengers.

What if only one date of a roundtrip is within the discounted date range or I choose one way in First Class?

You will get the discount on one way if one way of a roundtrip is within the discounted April 14 – May 19 date range.

Here is Denver to Kauai with one way in the discounted dates and the return not. It prices at 40,500 miles roundtrip–18,000 for outbound and 22,500 for return.
