United and Continental are offering some mileage discounts for roundtrip economy award tickets booked through January 16 for travel between January 27 and March 22, 2012. The offer is good for travel to Europe and Africa on United and Continental flights (no Star Alliance partners can be included). The discount is 20% for travel on Thursdays through Sundays, while the discount is 25% for travel on Mondays through Wednesdays, with a Saturday night minimum stay required.
This offer isn’t worth going out of your way to take advantage of, though if you’re thinking of making a coach redemption to Europe or Africa, you might as well take advantage of the savings.
