United has been offering a 25% reduction on award flights to Brazil (Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro) and Chile (Santiago) for a few months. Instead of the normal 60,000 miles required for a roundtirp ticket from the US, it’s only 45,000 United miles for a limited time only for a roundtrip.
This is a reminder that this sale is ending in 2 weeks (on November 30th). Note that this is only for roundtrip tickets – if you are just booking a one-way, it still prices out at 30,000 miles. You do need to book AND travel by November 30th in order to get the reduced price, so this would only be
Cheaper with American miles
Of course even at the 25% off rate, awards from the US to Chile or Brazil are actually going to be cheaper with American off-peak awards, which conveniently also end on November 30th. A total coincidence, I’m sure, that United ended their promotion the same day 🙂
Off-peak awards from the US to Southern South America on American are 20,000 miles one-way or 40,000 miles roundtrip. Still, if you are flush with United miles (or Chase Ultimate Rewards, one of their transfer partners) and looking to travel quickly, this beats paying full price!
