    Looks like a 15% (F/Sa/Su) or 25% (M/T/W/Th) discount based on day of travel for round-trip economy awards booked between now and 8 December for travel between 11 January and 10 March 2016. No stopovers or one-way and must be on all on UA metal. Pricing is adjusting automatically after selecting all flights on the website.

    Memo To United
    1Your fares to Europe are absurdly high even though oil price has declined by 2/3
    2You gutted your frequent flyer program and disincentivized travel for many long term former customers
    3 Your redemption levels are too high
    4 All your changes give people lots of reasons to pass on your product
    5 might be a turbulent 2016

    Of course it happens right after I buy an award tickets to Europe during the promotional period. But, I don't feel as bad, since this is for round trips in economy only, and I bought a one way in BF at the saver rate. Still, not a bad deal at all for this time of year, especially for relatively close-in booking.

    The good news is that the fine print indicates they'll reissue tickets to honor the discount, assuming you pay the change fee. Depending on status that might not be a bad idea for someone already booked.

    What does that breakdown into total mileage for a round-trip with the discount?

    45k, 48k or 51k depending on day of travel
