Summary

Do not confuse this sale with the monthly SkyMiles sale, which has already expired for this month as of yesterday.

I still have ingrained in my mind that a typical award ticket between the 48 continuous United States and either Japan, China or Hong Kong should cost as few as 70,000 SkyMiles round-trip when award charts used to exist, which means that this sale is fairly reasonable — if you can take advantage of the 50,000 minimum redemption of SkyMiles…
