As per UA Insider (a United rep) on Flyer Talk, the new United award chart devaluation that I previously posted about will now go into effect on Monday, February 3rd. They were gracious enough to move the date to a weekday for ease of implementation.
Also, if you were planning on booking an award that went down in points (were there any good ones?), you can book them now and United will retroactively refund the proper amount of miles “within 10 business days.”
So those of you who were on the fence and missed out have a 2 day stay of execution!
Use it wisely…
