GlobetrotterHQ held a contest recently to give away United Airlines Global Premier Upgrades (GPU) which expire at the end of this month. I entered the contest, as I’ll be traveling to Dubai shortly. I was one of the lucky winners! In the nicest announcement, GlobetrotterHQ stated:
The fourth winner that gets a United GPU was picked from all the Twitter comments. She has already made a name for herself in the points and miles community… Kathy from the first2board community with her page WillRunForMiles and she lives in my old stomping grounds, NYC. Congrats!
I was so excited, but then learned that a GPU cannot be used on flights booked in fare classes Z, P, S, T, K, L, G or N. My flight, booked during the Wideroe extravaganza, is a “K” and is not eligible for upgrade. Needless to say, I was bummed.
GlobetrotterHQ generously suggested that I “keep” the upgrade and do a giveaway right here, as I am now doing.
So, do you have a United flight before the end of this month, and can you use a GPU? If so, please leave a comment below, stating where and when you are traveling. Also tweet that you’d like to win the GPU from Will Run For Miles – http://willrunformiles.boardingarea.com/, mentioning @katruns26point2 and @GlobetrotterHQ and using the hashtag #winGPU.
Winner will be randomly chosen and announced on Wednesday at 9 pm EST. Good luck to you. I’ll be sitting in coach.
And the winner, using random.org, is…..
