United Club

Lounge Pass Winners!

A couple of quick housekeeping notes: 1.  A big thanks to reader CK who donated two Admirals Club passes to one lucky reader. 2.  Stay tuned for another giveaway, likely later this week, to make your next hotel stay cheaper! Our original winner was Madeleine, who said: We have never had an Admiral Club pass and are flying through Arizona on a US Air flight. I believe it would work there. Madeleine, I still haven’t heard from you!  Drop me an e-mail at ed -at- milepoint dot com to collect your […]

A Winner, And Another Giveaway!

Did You Win a United Club Pass?

Random.org gave me a bit of help picking the winners of the 2 United Club Passes I was giving away.  They are: Candace, who said: I like them for award availability. I agree.  That’s one of the few bright spots for me, though made much dimmer when they crushed partner redemptions with the Black Friday devaluation. Hemant, who said: I fly them frequently non-stop IAD-SEA. Generally on time, however it has been very hard to get upgraded post-merger. When I do get upgraded – I find the first class amenities […]

Dulles Airport Updates: Train Construction, New Food Options, And The Invisible United Club Renovation

I had a quick day trip yesterday that yielded some updates on my home airport of Washington-Dulles for those that find their way to the nation’s capital airport (or, the one 20 miles West of the nation’s capital). After many years of speculation, there appears to be actual dirt moving for the extension of the Metro Silver line that’s supposed to end up at Dulles Airport in 2018. For those that know Dulles Airport, this is over in the cargo area at the intersection of Air Freight Lane and Package […]

United Explorer Card, Check Your Snail Mail For Best Offer?

There have been a number of reports that you can fiddle with the United website to get it to offer you a pretty lucrative sign-up bonus for the United Explorer Card.  I have a predecessor to this card that I prefer, but if I were to be offered this sign-up bonus, I’d probably give it a swing (I haven’t been offered it yet). For some, though, the offer doesn’t appear online.  My father is one of them.  I manage my father’s loyalty accounts for him, so snail mail comes to […]

Another Good Piece On Why Status Matters

Scott McCartney has a good piece in today’s Wall Street Journal about people spending money to achieve status, either by taking flights they don’t need to take or “buying up”. No question, I’m a status snob.  But, status is more then just a seat near the front of the plane.  Over the past few years as airlines have cut benefits, the difference between the “haves” and the “have nots” on board has grown considerably.  Remember the days when everyone got a meal onboard?  It might not have been great food […]
