Giveaway! Free United Airlines Beverage Vouchers

Okay, not as sexy as the free airline ticket and Hyatt points I gave away last month, but a free drink still beats a sharp stick in the eye.

I have 10 vouchers for a free drink on a United Airlines flight.  If you’re interested, leave a comment in this thread between now and Friday, February 15th.  If there are more than 10 respondents I’ll draw randomly, though if I see a particularly crafty or amusing reply that might just win a free drink all on it’s own.  🙂



  1. I’m heading to Milan on United in June. Since I’m a nervous flyer, the free drinks could definitely be considered “medicinal”. Thanks for offering these!

  2. I love your Blog…. Thank you for sharing such amazing insight. got any free drinks?

  3. Yay! Almost out of vouchers. The old Continental ones which often generate interesting FA reactions when tendered.

  4. I’m flying united next month, and will need a drink to make it tolerable

  5. One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor.

    Count me in as interested!!

  6. A Sharp Stick in the Eye, aren’t they playing at Coachella this year?

  7. Fee beer! My favorite kind, although my wife may make me buy her a wine with it

  8. Will be flying cross-country to SFO soon and as Silver I know I won’t be upgraded so I might need something to make it easier.

  9. Excellent. I happen to be flying UA on Feb 16 at 6 AM and a bloody or coffee con Bailey’s sounds amazing (though I reckon the chits wouldn’t make it in time). In any event, I fly UA enough that I am sure I would find time to enjoy a beverage or several.

    Thanks a lot!

  10. United does Jägerbombs right?

    How about a voucher to check? 🙂

  11. Is there anyway to use it without having to fly on United? 🙂

  12. I fly with 3-month-old twins to Mexico with my wife in February on United.

    Vouchers would be a nice handout to the people around me as compensation for any crying that may occur!

    • Drew, gotta admit flying with twins definitely moves you up the list. 😀

      • Mexico? That’ll be cake. My best friend is getting married in Japan in April and possibly against my better judgement, I got award seats in economy from TUL – NRT with my wife, and our 3yr old and our new one will be 7 months. 18 hrs each way:(

  13. Flying to Tampa for work on Tuesday night after a full day of work and grad school. Arrive at 12:25am. Have an 8am meeting. Booze will help me snooze on the plane.

  14. My next flight will be from kid crazy Orlando airport and I will definitely need a drink on that flight!

  15. I’m headed to Istanbul in coach on United at the beginning of March. Think they’d let me redeem for a bottle of raki to start the trip off right?

  16. It seems to be the norm that there will be a screaming kid in my row. No matter where or when I fly.

    Last flight from FRA, beer was the only answer.

  17. I’m a United pilot and I only ever fly drunk. One of these will give me just the kick I need to brave the friendly skies.

  18. Count me in… assuming only if the vouchers are lithium-ion batteries NOT included!

  19. Got a flight from IAD-SMF coming up, in coach. Could use a beer!

  20. Don’t count me in. I don’t drink! 😉 Just thought I would leave a comment. 🙂

  21. A free drink will help me deal with the limited space when the inconsiderate person in front of me decides to put there seat back to get the additional 2 inches of space!

  22. I’d like one thanks!

  23. headed to Miami and could use free drinks.


  24. Did someone (hic) say something (hic) about free drinks (hic)?

  25. Enter witty reply here for a free drink.

  26. If I walk into a bar on my next trip, I know a free drink will help numb the pain and maybe reduce swelling.

  27. Alcohol always tastes better in the air than on the ground.

  28. recently discovered this site and it is very informative.

    the free drink voucher can be helpful in our upcoming travel

  29. I’m going to Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan in March and April. It won’t be the first time there for me.So…….. It will be an “adventure” and the drink voucher will certainly put me in the right frame of mind to deal with everything!

  30. Visiting Mom for Mothers’ Day will be a treat. Dealing with my brother – that will require a stiff drink!! (Flying UA, crediting A3)

  31. im flying united alot in the upcoming months starting monday…this will require alcohol

  32. If you give one of these to me, I’ll do my best to get duct taped to a plane seat.

  33. I need a drink to deal with the pain when Keri ditches me in Coach on United for First Class.

    • Shhh! I won’t tell her you’re mad at her for ditching you.

  34. I’m entering your contest.

  35. Very cool – I might wear a suit and pretend I’m flying like a character from Mad Men!

  36. I’ll definitely need a drink after the AA/US merger!

  37. I will definitely need a drink after the AA/US merger! Need I say more? 😉

  38. Thanks for your site! Check out mine as well!

  39. I am connecting at EWR AND ORD right after Nemo, I think I will need that drink…

  40. Leaving from JAC to PHL this week, bye Tetons and awesome powder snow….hello cauliflower clouds during take-off…could use a drink after that!

  41. Taking an early RSW-CLE flight next month. A free Bloody Mary would blunt the trauma of leaving sunny Florida for snowy Cleveland……

  42. First, love your blog which you give fresh travel blog view.

    Second, will need one drink coupon for my son graduation trip


    • Tina, thanks! And congratulations on your son’s graduation!

  43. Going to Peru next June could use a drink on a long flight. Thanks.

  44. I hope they have drinks on CRJs.

  45. Can’t believe that you thought you might get only 10 comments total 🙂
    Would love a drink ticket, which I would give to my hubby who doesn’t like to fly. I drag the poor fellow on the plane and promptly get him drink to relax. Works every time! Thanks.

    • Jana, yeah. I may have underestimated the value of a drink chit. 🙂

  46. Cheers to you for helping us raise a toast to travel. Beers to Brussels, wine to Winnepeg, and mojitos to (and from) Miami!

  47. Drinks are always good…thanks

  48. Don’t need a drink voucher but I may need the whole bottle if Dougie runs my beloved AA into the ground. You can buy me a drink at the FTU cocktail party 🙂

    • Perry Platypus, both of us are going to need a bottle when Dougie comes to town.
