United Airlines MileagePlus Tahiti Economy Award Sale For Travel Through March 12, 2020

United Airlines has launched a new MileagePlus economy award sale to Tahiti through March 12, 2020.

MileagePlus members can save up to 35% on economy awards between United States, Canada, and Papeete if booked by January 24.

You can access United here.

Here’s a search that I executed:

The economy return is 42,000 miles + $56,05 from San Francisco.


It seems that United Airlines is trying to get members to use miles that otherwise would go out less than full in economy.

Here are the terms and conditions of this award sale:

  1. This offer for discounted Awards is available to all MileagePlus® members.

  2. Discounted Award is only valid for travel in United Economy between the mainland U.S., Alaska, and Canada and Papeete (PPT), Tahiti.

  4. Offer is valid for travel beginning on or after January 14 and completed on or before March 12, 2020.

  5. Blackout dates do not apply

  6. Discounted Award is combinable with other award types as long as the itinerary is roundtrip (e.g., a member can book a Standard Award for the outbound portion of an itinerary and a Saver Award for the return portion, or vice versa) but only the flight segments purchased with a qualifying Saver Award will be eligible for a discount.

  7. For this offer, “roundtrip” is defined as travel from an origin city to a destination city with return travel ending at the origin city, and with all segments on flights operated by United Airlines.
