what to do with a travel voucher? (besides use it myself!)
« on: January 06, 2011, 09:09:39 PM »
I received a travel voucher worth $400 from Delta last February in return for bumping my flight. It expires this February and I don't plan on using it. I listed it on Ebay and even had a bid on it, and then Ebay took down my listing because they don't allow the sale of vouchers (same as the DansDeals sale thread- what a bummer!)
Any ideas on how to sell it? It's all in one coupon code, and must be redeemed by Feb 4, '11 (the actual travel can happen after that date) and good for any Delta airfare, including int'l. I'm kind of short on time, so any help at all would be so appreciated!
(And if you'd like to buy it, please email me- hopefully Dan is too busy on his vacation around the world to notice that I'm trying to sell it here ;)

If the rules are not to do it, i think you should use this site responsibly, and follow the rules.

you are absolutely right. i wasn't trying to make the deal necessarily thru dansdeals (though to be honest, that would be nice) I was just trying to find out if there were any other ways to sell it besides ebay and dansdeals, that's all.

uh, no thanks. I'd rather not deal with this kind of thing on craigslist. I'd feel more comfortable selling it to someone frum, who wouldn't try and scam me (at least i hope they wouldn't!)
what's ddf? (excuse my ignorance!)

Depending where your from some cities have frum weekly circulars that you can place an ad in. Might cost you money but it's gonna mean you'll deal with frum people.

Thanks all, I actually sold it on Craigslist, b"H not a scammer, and got what I wanted for it ($325).
Thanks for the advice and offers anyways!
And no, those vouchers are for use on the airline they were issued, from so no transferring (as far as I know).
So, if case anyone wants to sell a voucher Craigslist is probably your best bet (I got about 5 responses in 12 hours- not too bad!)
I wonder why this forum doesn't allow the sale of vouchers- is it for legal reasons? just curious to know why not.

I found a workaround for extending voucher expiration dates. I booked a refundable ticket and then cancelled it. They reissue a voucher which has a new expiration date  (one year.) I did this on Continental, no issues. (Being that refundable are very expensive I had to book  a one way ticket.)
