Update: This fantastic deal ends in five days on February 28! You can book through December 31 at the discounted prices.

You know those “secret” sales United has been having where they discount a lot of partner Business Class awards? Partner Business Class awards have cost more than United Business Class awards for a year now, but with these sales, both are the same price.

Well now United has published and expanded the sales.

  • Book by February 28, 2015
  • Travel by December 31, 2015
  • Saver Award prices for Star Alliance and other worldwide partner airlines are temporarily reduced for select regions and cabins. Choose your favorite qualifying destination and book a flight by February 28 to take advantage of this offer

Here’s the chart of price reductions:

Interestingly the sale was posted February 3, but indicates United knew the sale has been going on since January 30.

For me, the exciting sales are the Business Class sales from the United States to Europe and Asia.

There is real value in partner Business Class to Europe and Asia at these prices, which are still higher than American’s prices to Asia and Europe, but are pretty good. Book your summer vacation to Europe now–I already explained how in complete detail.

The other sales don’t jump out at me as great deals, but all of them will be useful for someone.

These deals are automatic and hard-coded into the search results. You don’t have to do any registering to save miles on your next United award booked by February 28.
