The auctions are live! Check out the auctions here.
What Are You Bidding On?
A one-hour one-on-one planning session with me for your next vacation and one United Airlines Global Premier Upgrade (GPU). You can use a GPU to upgrade a paid United Airlines one-way flight (and a few other airlines) to anywhere United flies. These upgrades can be redeemed for multiple legs on the same itinerary. You do have to purchase a specific fare class (W or higher) and space needs to be available (PN fare class). If that doesn’t make sense, I’ll help you decode it all. Suffice it to say that these upgrades can be worth hundreds (or, if really well planned, thousands) of dollars in savings on the price of a business class ticket.
I’ll also help you use your miles and points to plan a trip and give you tips on how to maximize your points the same way I do.
If you already made a donation through our fundraiser I’ll count any of those amounts to your winning bid. For example, if you donated $100 already and have a winning bid of $1,000, you’ll only need to donate $900 when the bidding closes.
Who Benefits From The Auction?
Pelotonia, a world-class organization that funds life-saving cancer research.
When Do The Auctions End?
Tuesday, April 23rd at 10:00pm EDT.
Is This Kosher?
Yup. I cleared the donation of my GPUs with United.
Why Am I Doing This?
You can read more about our family adventure here. My kids wanted to do something a bit crazy on our family vacation. We also wanted to honor our friend Pamela Johnston who lost a long battle with cancer recently. We’re doing both those things on Wednesday! And, all of the proceeds from the winning bids will go directly to Pelotonia. I’ll be covering the fees Bidding Owl charges so every dollar pledged gets to Pelotonia.
Even if you don’t want to bid on the auctions, I hope you’ll consider donating a couple of dollars per ride to help us raise more money for cancer research.
