Save 20 Percent on MileagePlus Award Flights to Hawaii in Economy Class

Nonstop service to Hawaii from the remainder of the United States is quite popular — especially during the winter months — but if you happen to have 36,000 MileagePlus miles to burn and you yearn for the warmth of the sun, you are in luck, as United Airlines celebrates 70 years of service to Hawaii.

Save 20 Percent on MileagePlus Award Flights to Hawaii in Economy Class

You would typically be required to redeem 45,000 MileagePlus miles for a roundtrip Saver Award ticket for the trip — but if you book your flight reservations by Friday, December 8, 2017 at 11:59 in the evening Central Standard Time and travel between Sunday, January 7, 2018 and Saturday, March 10, 2018, you will save 20 percent on your redemption.

Destinations in Hawaii with nonstop service from the mainland United States provided by United Airlines include:

  • Honolulu — HNL
  • Maui — OGG
  • Lihue — LIH
  • Kona — KOA
  • Hilo — ITO

Select Terms and Conditions

This offer for discounted Saver Awards is available to all MileagePlus members; and is valid for travel on all days of the week.

Saver award discount is only valid for air travel.

The Discounted Saver Award is only valid for roundtrip travel in the economy class cabin of airplanes operated by United Airlines between Hawaii and the contiguous United States and Alaska.

You can combine a Discounted Saver Award with other award types as long as the itinerary is roundtrip — for example, you can book a Standard Award for the outbound portion of an itinerary and a Saver Award for the return portion, or vice versa — but only the flight segments purchased with a qualifying Saver Award will be eligible for a discount.

For this offer, roundtrip is defined as travel from an origin city to a destination city with return travel ending at the origin city, and with all segments on flights operated by United Airlines. A segment is defined as one takeoff and one landing. Open-jaw itineraries within the same region do qualify for the discount. Stopovers are not permitted. A booking service charge may apply for travel booked less than 21 days before departure.

Qualifying existing award tickets may be reissued — upon request — to the award sale mileage. They are subject to the award change policy, including any applicable service fees.

Passenger is responsible for all taxes, fees, baggage fees and surcharges applicable to aoward travel, including, with respect to government imposed taxes and fees, September 11th Security Fee of $5.60 per one-way trip that does not include a government defined stopover, US Customs, Immigration and APHIS User Fees of $17.50 for each international arrival in the U.S.; and non-U.S. government ticket taxes, fees and airport charges may add up to $275 per ticket as of January 1, 2017. Such taxes, fees and surcharges must be paid at the time of ticketing and are subject to change. Any valid unused award ticket may be returned to the MileagePlus Service Center, for a service charge, up to one year from the date of issue. Award seats are subject to availability and capacity-control restrictions apply. For more information on MileagePlus award travel visit

Travel on award tickets is not eligible for mileage accrual in the MileagePlus frequent flier loyalty program — or any other loyalty program.

This offer cannot be combined with other offers.

Changes to travel itineraries are permitted in advance. Changes may be subject to additional service fees of up to $125.00 per ticket — based on the status of the membership account at the time when the MileagePlus miles were redeemed.

If a wholly unused ticket is exchanged for travel outside of the promotion period or travel that does not otherwise comply with the terms and conditions of this promotion, the mileage will be credited back into your account — subject to an applicable service charge — and a new ticket will be issued at the mileage redemption rate commensurate with the new award. Any changes made after the sale ticketing period ends will require a reissue of the entire ticket and sale pricing will not apply.

If the value of a partially used ticket is applied to travel outside of the promotion period, you must purchase a new one-way ticket or redeem a new one-way award at the applicable mileage-redemption rate. The unused return portion of the ticket is not valid for travel and cannot be credited back into your account.

Redemption of additional award MileagePlus miles may be required if any portion of the itinerary is outside of the promotion period or does not otherwise comply with the terms and conditions of this promotion.

This offer — as well as award pricing — is subject to change or cancellation without notice. Other restrictions, terms and conditions may apply.


Whale watching season is at its peak in Hawaii during this promotion; so say “aloha” to booking your ticket by redeeming you MileagePlus miles at a discount of 20 percent.
