United is offering a discount on tickets to Europe (and Cape Town (CPT), Johannesburg (JNB), Amman (AMM), and Dubai (DXB)). Use code VACAYABROAD to save $75 off Economy or $250 off United Polaris® fares. The offer says that it is targeted, but I was able to use it even logged out of my MileagePlus account. I happened to find this randomly on United.com. Book before January 26th and travel between February 1st and May 17th.
