I'm new to using MP points to fly so have a few quick questions.
I've rang United a few times but I haven't found them very helpful. They seem to be reading from a script and sound like robots. lol
OK, I've got a bit over 20,000 points and wouldn't mind putting them to use. I'll be flying out of Sydney and I beleive I can fly anywhere in the Oceania area that UA or one of their partners flies to?
Now is this a RETURN flight or just a one way flight?
Apart from NZ and Fiji, where are some locations that I can fly to in the Oceania area? Somewhere where it's warm, has a beach etc.. I was thinking about Fiji, but if at all possible somewhere like Vanautu would be nice and probably cheaper
Is there a list of all the places that UA's partners fly - I know UA has one for themselves, but apart from digging through hundreds of web pages looking for destinations that they fly too, is there an easier way?
And lastly, I have 20,974 points, of them I have 14,974 Lifetime United flight miles. The difference of 5,000 miles was a bonus because of a flickering light that kept us all awake on a 16 hour flight...
Do these 5,000 have a limited life ? Would I need to use them before a certain date ?
I'm mainly posting this to get an idea of where I can fly using the points. Once I get a location I'll start booking
Thanks and sorry for the noob questions.
