United’s booking site currently is booking awards to/from some Asian cities for only 4 or 8 miles total. I was able to book a one-way standard award for 4 miles at 130pm EST so this is still active. I was having a hard time with US to HKG awards and China awards as well, but play around with it to see if you can get the system to price your award out for only 4 miles. TPG intern Ryan was also able to book an award from New York to Hong Kong in First Class for 4 miles plus $43.00.

I see very little downside to getting a couple booked- in the worst case they will be cancelled and your measly miles refunded.  As with all amazing deals- they won’t last long, so book now and ask questions later!

Hong Kong-New York for only 4 miles

New York-Hong Kong R/T for 4 miles and $43

(Hat Tip-View from the Wing)

Updated 3:45pm EST It seems that United has taken away the ability to book awards to Hong Kong, and this deal is now dead.
