Time's ticking
How could the travel Bank be down, when they just came out with a new travel bank card?

The point is that United couldn't have ended the program if they just started with this type of credit card(or so I would think)

You mean this?

Is this new?

https://res.vacations.united.com/booking/giftcertificates/default.aspx

What GC do you get from this? Could it be used on United flights? Or for Vacation packages only? If it does work for United flights only, does someone want to volunteer to see if this works for the travel credit, and maybe this can replace the gift registry that is gone?
