Summary

Do not confuse this sale with the monthly SkyMiles sale, which is expected to be available sometime next week.

This is not the first time you could redeem as few as 40,000 SkyMiles for a roundtrip flight to Shanghai, as that was offered during the monthly SkyMiles sale last month — but to additional destination in Asia for that sale.

You can compare the redemption rates of this sale to when award charts used to exist. This sale is very good, and award seat availability is not scarce for many of these offers at the time this article was written.
