It’s that time of year where airline elites are left with spare upgrade certificates, and are looking to put them to good use.
Fortunately, I’ve got several friends with spare systemwide upgrades that they aren’t going to use that they want to give to you. Right now, I know of three upgrades, but it’s first come first served, and I know they’ve put the word out to other people as well.
The upgrades are valid from coach to businesses (need C class available) or business to first (need A class available). It’s only available on American “metal” planes (must say American on the side).
How to Enter
Simply comment below with your flight routing, and let me know if there’s upgrade space available to upgrade. If you don’t know if there’s upgrade space available, that’s okay – just let me know the flight numbers and dates and I’ll look it up.
To be clear, these upgrades are free, and there’s nothing you need to do other than comment below to enter. That said, sometimes an upgrade will add a luxury tax or other charge to your ticket, which of course you’ll be responsible for. I’ll be in touch to confirm your record locator and put you in touch with the folks looking to give away their upgrades. Note: these upgrades are in no way shape or form for sale or for trade or any other action that would be against any terms and conditions of the airline or loyalty program. This is a nice gesture from folks who otherwise can’t use these certificates.
First preference will go to those with long haul international flights, followed by transcontinental flights. Preference will also be given to upgrades that can clear immediately without the need to wait list.
Enjoy this giveaway!
Update: All upgrades have been given out. Congratulations to those whose itineraries have been upgraded! Please continue to comment if you’d like an upgrade – if I know of anyone else with spare Systemwide upgrades, I’ll continue to work through the comments to find eligible itineraries. 🙂
