United award travel CyberMonday specials - any luck?

United claims that there are round-trip tickets available on CyberMonday to Europe and Asia for 30K or 36K miles.
Well, I've tried every airport in southern Europe I can think of, starting in SFO, and none are any less than 30K one-way. That's a 'saver award' too; the regular costs are higher.

Anyone have any luck with this sale? Maybe there wasn't anything out of SFO?

I went and looked just now. Saw lots of 30K awards to Frankfurt for random dates picked. Also saw lots of flights for 17.5K to Narita, Tokyo. All regular economy. All Round Trips.

But, these all state "Only available to United Platinum level or higher Frequent Flyers".

Thanks. For a minute I thought he was referring to my post! :-)

Thanks for the reminder about 'Flyertalk' -- I hardly ever look over there.
I'm also making a mental note for next year's CyberMonday to be prepared to take advantage of this kind of thing!

look nobody had any luck; That CyberMonday is bs hype just like Travel Tuesday. You can get better fares by signing up with each airline. They put flights on sale by season and you will get an email
