Is this a good use of United Miles?

Jump to last reply

I have to fly from Chicago to Vancouver June 2-5 for a family trip. My dates are not flexible. The only flight that flies direct is United and the price with taxes and fees comes up to $923.63 which I think is very pricey for such a close trip. It is not that much less for non-stop flight.

I thought about using miles (I have 55,000) and I would have to use 50,000 miles for roundtrip.

Should I use 50,000 miles or pay the $923.63 fare? I don't fly United too much (I earned all these miles in the last 10 years) but am inclined to save it for a long distance trip or upgrade on a long flight. I can afford the fare but it just seems exorbitant.

Thanks in advance for any replies.
