It’s the end of the year and time for another round of holiday giveaways. I’ve got too much swag that I’m not going to use, but I’m not sure you want branded trinkets and pens. So instead I’ve got some actual travel-related benefits that I won’t be able to use before they expire. Enter my giveaway using the widget below for your chance to win one of many excellent prizes.
- Two United Global Premier Upgrades (expiring 1/31/2014)
- One United Regional Premier Upgrade (expiring 1/31/2014)
- Four United drink coupons (in my experience, no expiration)
- One free night at a Hyatt Place (expiring 12/31/2013)
Please keep in mind that the upgrades on United Airlines come with certain fare restrictions and must be used for travel on or before January 31, 2014. That’s the fly-by date, not the booking date, and the sooner you ask me to apply it to your reservation the better. The Hyatt Place coupon must be redeemed before December 31, 2013, but if you don’t have it with you at the time of check-in I can at least send you the rate code and you can request a refund later by mailing in the certificate. The drink coupons ostensibly have an expiration date of January 31, 2014, but I’ve never heard of a flight attendant enforcing this policy.
I reserve the right to re-assign the Global Premier Upgrades if the original winner will not be able to use them on an international flight or certain domestic itineraries that require an upgrade instrument (e.g., flights like IAD-HNL that require only a Regional Premier Upgrade but are ineligible for a Complimentary Premier Upgrade are fine). I’ll reach out to the winner to see if he/she will be able to use the GPUs. If not, I’ll contact the other winners to see if a trade is possible. The original winner of the GPUs will not go empty-handed!
The giveaway runs from noon today through noon on Wednesday, December 4 (Pacific Time, as always). You must enter by submitting your email address. I don’t track these email addresses or use them for other purposes, but everyone needs to enter this way so I can contact the winner. You may submit three additional entries by signing up to follow me (and Amol) with Twitter or Facebook or confirming that you already do.
