[Edited to add: Thanks for everyone’s interest. Commenter #58 ended up being chosen and the upgrades are reserved in his name]
My international travel has been plotted through at least January next year and I have two United Airlines Systemwide Upgrade certificates available that I’d like to gift to someone, so who better than one of my readers? These SWUs are valid through January 31, 2012, so all segments using the upgrades must be completed by that date.
For anyone unfamiliar, systemwide upgrades can be used for a one-way upgrade to the next class of service on eligible United flights worldwide. They are most valuable on international flights, which requires the purchase of at least a W-bucket fare. They can also be used domestically on any published fare, and I have in the past burned them on United’s premium service p.s. flights where the Unlimited Domestic Upgrade program for elites doesn’t apply. I don’t care how you use them, I would just love to give them away. As with any award, upgrade space is capacity controlled and applying a SWU to an existing reservation doesn’t guarantee the upgrade. For more information on SWUs, check out the details on United’s website.
Interested? Just leave a comment (one comment per person) and be sure to plug in your email address so I can contact the person chosen randomly (via Random.org) this Saturday. As such, all comments must be received before 12:00pm MDT on Saturday August 13, 2011. Don’t worry if your comment gets held up in moderation… I’ll be sure to get it approved & posted live as soon as possible. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at Darren@frequentlyflying.com.
This is a gift and I ask for absolutely nothing in return except I hope you’ll enjoy the upgrades (and they clear!).
