Big Snowflake (more like an avalanche)

April 21st, 2014 at 10:01 am

I have to share with you how we were able to receive two $1K vouchers from United Airlines while waiting for our departure flight to Florida. We arrived at the airport with a couple of hours to spare. As we were waiting for our departure, we kept hearing the airline clerk announcing that they were giving a $500 voucher to anyone willing to give up their seat. My husband and I looked at each other, but I turned it down. Again, they announced that they increased the voucher to $800 for each person to give up their seat. I was tempted, but I declined. Fifteen minutes before departure, the clerk announced a $1,000.00 voucher for each person, a hotel stay, meal voucher and a spot on the next plane to Florida in the morning. Quite honestly, we were not in a hurry to get to Florida so I looked at my husband and I said, "Let's do it!" We had nothing to lose since we were traveling alone (no kids)and were planning to stay at a hotel room once we arrived in Florida and travel to my mom's house in the early afternoon. Our next airfare is covered! A little inconvenience paid off!!!

Also, this trip also helped us realized that we are not ready to move south anytime soon. My husband did not liked the area and we really need to think this through, especially now that the medication for my Seasonal Affective Disorder is really helping me.

P.S. We saw a family of five take the vouchers too!

    That happened to me before to the tune of $700. I had a year to use the voucher so make sure you check expiration date. Great job!!
