United airline electronic travel certificate questions
« on: November 25, 2022, 12:30:01 AM »
I received a $150 United electronic travel certificate that has Promotion code, PIN and expiration date. It was for a compensation.

Can this be used by anyone or only to the one issued? I have no experience with this. Wish I got miles as compensation.

The following is the terms but I wanted to be sure if it can be used for flights on anyone ?

Promotional offer
Valid toward the purchase of an electronic airline ticket(s), where eligible, from United Airlines up to the face value of the certificate.

Terms and conditions
1.  Travel certificates are redeemable toward transportation on any flight operated by United Airlines, Inc., United Express, and partner airlines sold on United digital channels.
2.  You may redeem or view travel certificate details at by clicking on Deals & Offers, Promotional certificates, and entering the promotion code and PIN in the offer code box. You can also call United at 800-UNITED-1 (800-864-8331). A fee may apply for redemption via telephone. You will be asked to enter the last name of the certificate recipient. Certificates may not be redeemed through a travel agency.
3.  The promotion code and PIN must be presented at time of ticket purchase and expire 24 months from original date of issue, unless otherwise noted.
4.  Travel certificates have no cash value.
5.  Travel certificates will not be honored in conjunction with prepaid tickets, fee-waived tickets, MileagePlus awards, tour packages or other service charges. You must pay for outstanding fees and ancillary purchases with a credit or debit card at time of purchase.
6.  If the face amount of a travel certificate exceeds the cost of the ticket for which it is surrendered, any residual amount will be applied to the same PIN for use toward another ticket until either the original issued amount is depleted, or the expiration date has been reached, whichever comes first.
7.  Travel certificates are not transferable and may not be sold, traded or bartered. However, the original recipient of a certificate may arrange travel for another person if done without selling or bartering the certificate. Any sale or barter of a certificate, or any offer to sell or enter into such a transaction, shall render a certificate null and void such that the certificate shall no longer be redeemable by any person, including the original recipient.
8.  Positive identification may be required when using a certificate toward the purchase of a ticket. United is not liable for loss, theft or unintended use of a certificate by a person other than the original recipient.
9.  United's Contract of Carriage applies to all travel on United Airlines and United Express.

Redemption instructions
1. On the home page, enter the origin, destination and travel dates. Select the "Search" button.
2. Choose your flights and enter your contact information.
3. When you reach the Payment information page, select "United payment types." You will see the option to redeem a travel certificate. Select year of issue, enter PIN and recipient’s last name. To redeem the certificate, you must click "Apply." Certificate amount will be deducted, and then payment for any additional amount owed can be entered to complete your ticket purchase.
