I posted last week about the “Geeks United” contest where United Airlines is giving away a seat on the upcoming Star Alliance MegaDo. To enter, you had to submit a “30-second video showcasing just how geeky you are when it comes to our fleet.”
As I hadn’t bought a ticket for the MegaDO (I really need to next year) and given my relative work flexibility allowing me to travel whenever I want to, I jumped on the chance and submitted a video. The deadline to enter was last Friday at noon, with the winner being contacted via email “on or about October 21.”
After about Tuesday this week, I had all but given up hope at winning. And it was confirmed today with United tweeting:
Sigh. Ah well… it was a long shot. As I’m my own worst critic, I probably should have smiled, displayed enthusiasm equivalent to a giddy “Wheel of Fortune” contestant and maybe brought out all of my elite MileagePlus cards dating back to 1990. I love this card:
Have a great weekend everyone.
