GlobetrotterHQ Winners #4, #5 and a Surprise!


We’ve made it to the last week of the competition!

Over the past 3 weeks we had our first 3 GlobetrotterHQ winners apply their upgrades to flights from Washington to Dulles, Houston to Tokyo and Honolulu to Los Angeles. I hope they have enjoyed or will soon enjoy their upgraded flights.

Once again, I want to thank all of you who have passed by and left your various suggestions and ideas. Now that the competition is over I will sort through all of the additional comments and add them to the existing topics that interest the majority of you and target those first. Since one of them was about European travel and since I’m based in Europe 🙂 I just wrote a post on European award redemption comparisons. Some surprising info came out of that after seeing it in black and white… ie. which program is in the winners circle 40 times!

So who are this weeks winners? The fourth winner that gets a United GPU was picked from all the Twitter comments. She has already made a name for herself in the points and miles community… Kathy from the first2board community with her page WillRunForMiles and she lives in my old stomping grounds, NYC. Congrats!

Our 5th winner is Rose from the the original contest blog. She actually made the first comment on that post. Rose will be getting all 15 drink chtis and the 2 United Club passes so she can have a bit of fun before, during and after a long haul flight! Just don’t end up like this guy… I will be contacting you via email to get your address to ship them out to you.

  2. Thanks for the GPU.

    Didn’t know much about it…But getting it was beneficial in two ways!
    1. I got to learn about them. I know what R=0 means and how to confirm that space…and how to see that space using Expert mode.
    2. Using the GPU on my dad’s flight…So he gets to fly the 16 hours in BusinessFirst. Which means a lot at his age.

    Thanks a lot GlobetrotterHQ!!!!

    • I’m extremely happy for your dad and I’m glad that you picked up some extra tips for future redemptions! I’m glad to have helped.
