United Airlines is offering a flash sale on award flights to Europe— but you’ll need to act quickly.

If you book by November 25, 2023, you can score flights to Europe starting at 50,000 MileagePlus miles round-trip, plus taxes and fees from $57.19.

Here’s everything you should know about United’s latest flash sale!

United’s Flash Sale to Europe

This flash sale is valid for round-trip award tickets purchased through November 25, 2023, for travel by December 14, 2023, or beginning on or after January 8, 2024, and complete by March 21, 2024.

Award pricing varies based on your United MileagePlus membership and whether or not you hold a United MileagePlus credit card:

  • 50,000 miles round-trip for MileagePlus members with Premier status and a United MileagePlus credit card issued by Chase
  • 55,000 miles round-trip for MileagePlus members with a United MileagePlus credit card issued by Chase
  • 60,000 miles round-trip for MileagePlus members without a United MileagePlus credit card or Premier status

Eligible destinations include Amsterdam (AMS), Brussels (BRU), Frankfurt (FRA), Geneva (GVA), London (LHR), Munich (MUC), Paris (CDG), and Zurich (ZRH).

Here are several other details you’ll want to be aware of before booking:

  • The promotion applies to new award bookings only.
  • The promotional rate is valid for award tickets from all mainland U.S. airports.
  • The blackout dates are December 15, 2023, to January 7, 2024.
  • Promotional fares are valid in the economy cabin on United and United Express flights.

You can book your tickets and view the terms and conditions in full on the dedicated promotion page.

Sure enough, we found several economy tickets at the 60,000-mile rate, like in the example below for a round-trip ticket from Washington, D.C. (IAD) to Zürich (ZRH):

Cash options for these flights are $741 round-trip, meaning you’d get about 1.24 cents per mile in value. That’s on par with our valuation of United MileagePlus miles at 1.2 cents per mile.

Remember, even if you don’t have a healthy stash of United MileagePlus miles in your account, you can earn them easily thanks to the program’s partnership with Chase Ultimate Rewards, which allows you to transfer points at a 1:1 ratio into your United account.

Hot Tip: Learn all about what it’s like to fly the carrier in our full review of United Airlines, which dives into its fleet, seat types, fees you should expect, and more.

Final Thoughts

If the Christmas markets of Europe or springtime in Paris has been on your mind, today’s a great day to book your flights for just 60,000 miles round-trip, as long as you can travel before March 2024.

If you’re thinking of getting in on this deal, make sure you book today!
