United Club Passes

one time passI’ve posted about United’s Club/Lounge passes before and about how I’m trying to remember to bring them with me when traveling. Earlier this year, it came in very handy during a frustrating day trying to get to Calgary. Our son flew to Guanajuato yesterday to visit with his uncle. Before leaving I sent him pictures (front and back) of a pass that expires at the end of the month, just in case he runs into trouble – especially on the return trip. His connection time in Houston is 1 hr and 42 mins, which you’d think would be plenty. But that airport is a cluster when you are returning from Mexico. My parents missed a flight there a number of years ago, my brother did just last year, and Jay and I almost did a couple of years ago. Steve isn’t checking any luggage, which will really help.

If he doesn’t need to use the pass, I will post it for sale on Craigslist. It will expire before we go anywhere and I’m pretty sure I can get at least $10-$20 for it. Some of the United Lounges are fantastic (eg. Toronto) with free food and booze. It should be easy to sell.

Update: I sold it for $10.
