Are you a smartphone or tablet-owning United MileagePlus member between the ages of 18 and 22? Ding ding ding — you qualify for an oddly specific new United promotion!

Now through December 31, 2019, United Airlines is offering young-adult flyers an opportunity to save 10% on paid fares booked through the carrier’s mobile app.

In addition to the age and app-booking requirements, you’ll need to meet the following qualifications as well:

  • Travelers must be MileagePlus members
  • Your MileagePlus account must include your date of birth
  • Reservations must be booked for one passenger
  • You must travel within the US, Canada, Mexico or “certain international destinations”
  • Travel may be in economy or basic economy

Flights can depart after the deadline, but you must book by the end of 2019, and you must be 18-22 years old at the time of booking.
