As seen on Mile Nerd, for a limited time, there’s a United sale of 20% off Saver Awards to Portugal, Iceland, Singapore, and Sydney. Hmmm…..not a bad list of destinations if you ask me. Not everyone is a fan of economy flights on international travel, but this just might work for those who want to simply getaway using less miles. This could be your Spring Getaway, or you could take advantage of taking off around the Memorial Day holiday.
