Fly to Australia
Written by Charlie

The sale that started the other day is now open to all – 60,000 United miles to travel roundtrip to Sydney, Australia! This is the same amount as travel to Europe so take advantage of it!

The other day, I wrote about how United Airlines was running a special mileage sale where you could redeem 60,000 United miles for roundtrip travel from the US/Canada to Sydney, Australia. At the time, it was only open for United credit cardholders and United elite members. Good news – it is now open for all to book!
