Giveaway: One American Airlines SWU (Expires February 28, 2015)

UPDATE: This contest is now over. Thanks for entering!

To kick off my week being a featured blogger, I’m giving away one American Airlines systemwide upgrade! This can be used to upgrade any one-way flight (up to 3 segments) in any fare class, but be warned that international flights can be hard to upgrade (e.g. DFW-HKG), and some upgrades can trigger additional taxes/fees (e.g. LHR). The flights must be marketed and operated by AA to be upgraded. The SWU expires February 28, 2015, so your flight needs to happen on or before that date to be eligible. The giveaway will end at some point before I stop being a featured blogger, so ideally,ย your flight occurs after February 8, 2015 as well.

To enter to win, all you need to do is comment on this post with something you’re grateful for (e.g. “I’m grateful for the wonderful information provided in this blog!” but something that’s actually true and not inane). You can comment as many times as you wish, provided that you list out a separate thing that you’re grateful for in each comment. I will randomly select one comment as the winner. Note that I reserve the right to delete/make ineligible comments that I believe are nonsensical (e.g. “Blejiooisa”) or otherwise not something that anyone should be grateful for (e.g. “I am grateful for ISIS”).

All of us who participate in this hobby have so much to be grateful for,ย and I hope that this giveaway helps us cultivate gratitude just a little bit more.

    I enjoyed your recent PVG trip report so I’m grateful for that, as well as AA’s still generous upgrade policies.


  2. Atif

    I’m greatful for the new fancy snow shovel I bought back in September when the local Sears went out of business….AND for my up coming AA trip to HKG at the end of Feb (which would go nice with a SWU!)

    I’m grateful for my gf flying here monthly to visit me. And an upgrade for her flight this month would be a great way to show my appreciation!

  4. Brian J.

    I am grateful for the information you share with us. I appreciate the different perspective you give on alternative accommodations versus what you normally find! Not the most popular, I know, but I like reading about them. So thank you, and thank you for doing this give away!

    I am grateful that I have two upcoming trips this month (SJU and ORD), for which I hope to be able to use this upgrade!

  6. EIG

    I’m grateful for miles and points for getting me and my friends to enjoy vacations I wouldn’t likely be able to afford. Oh and I’m grateful for giveaways ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m grateful for my wife of almost 33 years and for the opportunity to see the world with her in more comfort and more often as a result of the information I’ve gleaned from these pages.

    I’m grateful for my wife and all the tips i have learned from the Boarding Area to make our trips so much more enjoyable and affordable!

    I’m grateful for the ability to travel the world on minimal out of pocket costs – gotta love miles and points!

  12. Kabukijuul

    I grateful for all of the amazing travel experiences that I have been fortunate to have with my two beautiful children!

  13. Linda

    I’m grateful for all of the knowledge people are willing to share so that i have the chance to fly in business or first class instead of coach.

  14. Casey

    I’m grateful for people that share their tips and tricks with the rest of us. (and I’m grateful to have the opportunity to maybe not have to sit in a middle seat in coach from HKK to DFW…)

  15. Patrick

    I’m grateful that in 10 days I’ll be travelling with my dad to Asia (HKG/ICN/PEK). It’ll be his first trip to Asia (he turns 60yrs old next year), and I’m looking forward to our first trip together in close to a decade (i’ve been to each of these cities once before). There’s upgrade availability on his flight, and I’d love to surprise him with the SWU if it’s still available ๐Ÿ™‚
