I’ve been involved in the frequent flyer community for years and the thing I love the most is when people go above and beyond to help each other out and expect nothing in return. When US Airways launched their Barclay’s credit card in 2006, they ran a crazy promotion where they sold 50 cent fares to various cities around the world. I remember a fellow Flyertalker couldn’t go on one of the trips they won and gave it to me out of the blue. I remember being completely stunned that a complete stranger would give me a free flight to Paris and want nothing in return. I’ve had many moments like that over the years and I hope I’ve been able to help some people out along the way.

Over the past week several TPG readers have graciously offered me the use of their expiring airline upgrade certificates. February 28 is usually the day that many instruments expire, so it’s a matter of “use them or lose them.” As nice as it was to offer these upgrades to me, I’m all set for the next couple months. However, it got me thinking that there must be so many people out there with expiring upgrade certificates that will just let them expire because they can’t be bothered with trying to find someone to use them.

That’s where I come in. I’d like to set up an exchange where those with excess items such as systemwide upgrades, lounge passes, drink certificates, etc can gift them to those who can use them. I don’t have the technology to create some sort of automated matching system, so let’s try and do this very simply. If you have anything you’d like to give away, simply comment on this post with “HAVE: XYZ upgrade instrument, expiring X date. Restrictions: For example international vs domestic, fare restrictions, etc”

If someone posts something that they have and you’d like to be considered for it, simply respond to that comment and give a quick reason why you need it and make sure you include your travel dates and class of service to make sure you are eligible for the upgrade. Do not give any personal details or even your email address in the text of your comment. Just be sure to login to Disqus or register as a guest with your correct email address if you get selected for the item we can contact you.

I’ll wait for the person who is offering the item to reply to their original comment with who should get it. I’ll then send an email to both parties putting them in touch. From that point, you take it from there.

To make this fun for those who are giving away items, I’m putting together a pool of prizes to give away that include tickets to the Freddies (frequent flyer award ceremony on April 26, 2012 in New York), a lifetime supply of travel karma, Boeing merchandise we picked up at the official Boeing store on the Oneworld Megado, and swag from the Grammy’s, including a Coldplay strobe light bracelet they gave to us for use during their performance. By the way, a huge thanks again to TPG reader Steve for taking me to the show – it was incredible. Once again, I was humbled by a TPG reader’s generosity!

I’m hoping this goes smoothly, but if it turns into a mess or people start trying to sell items (which is strictly forbidden by every program), I’ll shut it down.

    I think it makes more sense to follow the original instructions and only people that have something post initially and then people that need that item can respond. Otherwise this could get messy and hard to sort through very quickly

    This is a nice thing to do, TPG. I hope folks here really do pay it forward/back. I’m moving to Spain permanently in March, and I’m very worried about how much baggage fees will run me since all my things will be in 3 or 4 large pieces of luggage. Have not bought ticket yet.

    Flying delta las-jfk tmrw 2/15

  • Mico

    Flying LGA-IND on 3/2, IND-PBI on 3/5, PBI to LGA on 3/10. Between all 3 flights, maybe I can find a FA that will overlook expiration date if you would so kind as send them my way. If they are not accepted I will come back here and offer them to someone else who can try using them on a future Delta flight.

    I have a free ticket on Southwest airlines that will expire on 31 March. I will not be able to use it. Any takers?

  • Eli

    I wish I had something to trade, but my business travel has been cut back a bit so I’m down. That said, I’m looking to go to Hawaii in May for our 25th anniversary. I have to do a stopover in LAX (family event) and my airline of choice (Delta) wants to charge an extra 12,500 miles to upgrade for each ticket because we’re staying a day in LAX for two nights on the way out. I don’t have nearly enough miles for three flights (as they call it). Anyone able to offer systemwide upgrades that include Hawaii, it would be greatly appreciated!

    Is this a roundtrip ticket? My partner and I are heading to Seattle from STL in March using AA miles and have been trying to figure out an inexpensive way friends (couple) of ours could join. This could be it. If they only had to pay for 1 ticket they may be able to swing it.

  • Seemald

    You are very nice to offer this. Would love to go to Atlanta to see my parents. Is is still available?

    I have a companion voucher from BA that I am not using (well, I have 160K avios miles that I won’t use due to BA’s super high taxes on BOS-LHR flights …) Can this be given away? I will if it can be done…

  • Jedi Jood

    My brother just graduated from Naval Officer School in Newport, RI in Oct 2011 . He will be deployed to USS Abe Lincoln come next month. I would not be using these miles on myself, but on my brother and his fiance to get to the Philippines. He recently got engage on New Year’s and is getting married there because of his fiance’s family. Because of the stresses of being deployed in the Persian Gulf, I want him to have one less thing to worry about. This would be enough miles for them to travel to at least Hong Kong on BA or Cathay and I can figure out the rest for them. Maybe I can buy the rest of the miles needed to get him to his final destination. His wedding is 12/12/12. His travel dates would revolve around these dates.

  • Kathy K

    Hi. My boyfriend and I have been invited to join some friends at a time share in cancun. I have enough avios for myself, but the boyfriend doesn’t . He’s a teacher with big child support obligations, so it wouldreally help to have some of the avios. maybe 50,000. thank you so much.

    The 12/31/11 DL drink certificates usally still work – depending on how nice (or not nice) the FA is. I used one yesterday!! cheers.

    Great spirit. I appreciate it. I am planning a trip to surprise my boyfriend. Normally he does all the planning and meticulously keeps track of our miles. I can use some of our miles, but he would notice it immediately and the surprise would be gone. It would be great if the miles come from somebody else. I would be glad to trade with some other miles but only after the surprise trip.

  • Gene

    Well, it seems that the voucher cannot be given away… (thanks Snopher) I had no idea.

    As far as the miles, we are still deciding if and how we can use them ourselves… We are flying fairly frequently to Europe, but the high BA taxes are kinda keeping us from using them on BA… So we are still trying to figure out if we have time to fly in the US somewhere… Sorry, I should have explain better that as far as the miles go I am not entirely ready to give them away right now… I really, really apologize.

  • Seemald

    Good morning the Shiz Niz! Any chance your 3k miles are still available for me to book a one way or roundtrip ticket on JetBlue ?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=685121871 Christopher Wu

    I just redeemed a 2 for 1 for travel recently.. yes the taxes are crazy… they’re a big hurt but here’s how I look at things: I spent 150K miles to fly two people to Istanbul in First/club europe. No london stopover, so my fees were about $1550. So that’s 75K miles +$775 per person for roundtrip flights from the east coast to Europe, in First… and BA First availability is actually pretty good. I looked at a lot of other options: Dubai is 240K roundtrip, all in First, Cairo 195K (not terribly safe), India 270K or South Africa 270K… For two people it’s not a bad use of miles+money. One of the harsh realities is that if you actually spend >24 hours in London, then you have to pay the UK APD which tacks on ever higher taxes.. so in summary: Use your 2 for 1. Use it for First. Do not use if to visit the UK

    Man, the Coupon Connection over on FlyerTalk is difficult to use for a first timer. I liked your idea better. I have one AA SWU expiring 2/28 that I’ll gladly share. I think it should go to a ExPlat as they would be most likely to get the UG at this late date. Also, I’m on my way back from Japan and probably can’t respond until Wednesday morning. I hope this works out for someone.

    Cheers

    I have 7 AA eVIP upgrades that will expire on the 29th

  • S.S

    I am a medical student, I am flying back on AA from GND to LAX. This is my last term in Grenada and if I can get an upgrade voucher for AA, that be very helpfull so I dont have to ship my belongings in a barrel. I would be flying out on 7/1/12 from GND to LAX.

  • s.s

    Can you apply those for a flight booked on July 1st? Its a international flight from GND ->MIA -> LAX? If so I would like to use one of your eVIP upgrades.

    Going to be stuck at MSP solo (i.e. without my wife who is the Amex Platinum card holder in our family) for 4 hours tomorrow. Looking for a Delta Sky Club pass. Any help appreciated.

    If anyone can upgrade an AA award ticket for travel on June 19 from CDG-ORD it would be much appreciated

  • Asen

    I hate to say this.. but if your eVIPs are totally going to waste, I have a flight from IND-ORD-BOS on Feb 27. I am AA PLT. So, the upgrade will probably clear. If you find no good use of the eVIPs, please consider my itinerary. But, it is a very bad use of eVIPs. Would be glad if someone used it for International itineraries.

    Hi i’m not sure if i would qualify since my flight is on march 15 from jfk to lax and another one back to jfk on march 19. But i would love to get an upgrade if it is applicable and goin to waste. im also a med student and is going to be studying on the plane for my boards. So hopefully the extra room would give me more space for my books. But if someone else needs it for an international flight with longer travel time, he should get it over me. Thanks for your generosity

  • Louis Mayer

    I have a 20% off code for travel between April 15 and June 15 from the NFL promotion that ended. Must be booked by Feb 29 with a Visa card. Does anyone want? ( I know there is a currently promotion for travel between 4/11 till 6/13, but my code is good till the 15th)

    My husband and I will be flying on American Airlines from DFW to HNL on June 26th at 1:20pm. (Flight AA 5) and from OGG to DFW on July 12th on AA6. We would love any help we can get with this being such a very long flight.

    Our plane type is a 763 and booking class was V, so I don’t know if that hinders our chances.

    I would appreciate the consideration. THANKS!

    Kristy,

    Unfortunately the actual travel dates would have had to been before the end of February. Hope you enjoy the trip this summer.

  • Louis Mayer

    Sorry guys, travel would have to be before the end of February.

    I’d love to be gifted some United Airline upgrades for an upcoming trip to Thailand from Florida. I could gift back a stay in my house for those two weeks.

    Anyone can help me with a eVip Upgrade?…I am traveling to Beijing next week….will help in return.

  • Rich

    The last comment here was some time ago, but I hope someone reads this :) I just got a match to EXP and would like to (or have to) take a trip to Asia. But the match doesn’t give eVIPs until I re-qualify this March. Anyone with 2 expiring eVIPs to trade with me, so you can get 2 or mine when they come on re-qualification?

  • SoBeDude

    This is great. What about this Year?

  • baconcurl

    I haven’t flown in years, but finally am deciding to take my wife to Europe for our 30th anniversary. Still deciding between AA and UA (currently UA is a little cheaper) but will purchase this week. Does anyone have any SWU (or GPU) that are expiring soon that they don’t plan on using? If so, please let me know so I can buy from the appropriate airline. Thanks.
