My first travel related post will be for UAL members…not too many in HK, but they do fly here from SFO and ORD, and now EWR after the CO merger.
Courtesy of the points guy, UAL is selling miles 40% off today, good until 12:59pm April 26th, HKT.
However, I don’t think this price makes it really worthwhile to buy unless you need it for travel in a premium class or are just shy a few thousand points from your intended redemption level.
e.g. if you have 22K miles in your account, but need 3K more to redeem 25K this is a nice way to do it.
UAL also has some interesting redemption options in Asia on Star Alliance partners, which I’ll touch upon in tomorrow’s post.
