Continental is running a promotion from now through January 16th. This promotion (found here) lets you travel on United-operated flights for up to 25% fewer miles. You have to ticket it by January 16th and your trip has to be between January 27th and March 22nd (with a Saturday night stay required). There are many different items in the terms and conditions (which can be found on the promo page), but basically, you are looking at a tremendous savings in miles if you want to take advantage of this. The cities that you can fly to at the discounted rates are:
- Accra, Ghana (and that’s it in Africa, sorry!)
You will receive a 20% discount when you fly on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday and a 25% discount when you fly on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday.
Below is a picture of what type of itinerary is possible with this promotion
