Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

 Not sure this is the right place for posting this question – I know that United used to have a 20% off sale every once in while on mileage tickets from the US to GRU (São Paulo)...hoping to go in January. Is there a better time to buy my mileage ticket now or should I be holding out for any possible mileage fare sales? Thank you! :)

Not very reachable for most. Given that they are quite strict about closing that flight an hour before scheduled departure.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Reachable for me . Anyone from Lakewood to monsey really. Brooklyn is harder.

Depends on number of seats, class of service, type of plane, etc.
