In January I wrote about this Star Alliance contest in which the grand prize was free business class round-the-world tickets. The award email initially looked like spam, so make sure to keep you eyes peeled for messages from “SAUA prize fulfillment team <upgrade.award@staralliance.com>”!

While I didn’t win the grand prize, I did get an email notifying me I won 10,000 US Airways miles, which is greatly appreciated since I am 10,000 miles away from the award level I need! Plus, I’m sure I would have had to pay ridiculous taxes on the business class ticket prize, so I’m happy with my little miles payday. Did anyone else win anything?
