Time for a DD post on the United Club card. With $100 off, after a few bookings, its not so expensive at all.
What's the AF on this card? And any perks to it aside from the simple MPX(baggage,award avlblty)?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

I guess that's only worth it for frequent flyers.

Or you plan on making 3 r/t tickets within 21 days notice. Less than that if you are checking luggage.
I think there is $100 off for the first year.

If you book a RT there's only one close in fee? As opposed to booking the same itin as two OWs there'd be 2x$75, correct?

With United you may have a point, even though I'm not sure what they will do. But with Delta and American there isn't really anything to lose. I think the Dot or FTC have what you enforce. They bait and switch, change the terms, limit the redemptions, charge bogus fees. There definitely is precedent for prosecuting such behavior.
terms subject to change at any time. appreciate it while you have it.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

I just want to say thanks to the people that shared it with me, without them I wouldn't know it existed before it died.

And to the people that shared it with ANYONE besides ME screw you!
