This week’s Thursday Giveaway is the chance to win a $500 United Airlines gift card to use for your next flight. The carrier recently announced that it would begin flying its flagship Dreamliner aircraft — usually reserved for long-haul international service — on domestic transcons between Newark (EWR) and Los Angeles (LAX). If you’re looking for a retro experience, you might even be able to get on one of the United’s 747 planes, which will be retired by 2018.
You can also earn points and miles with certain credit cards to use toward flights, such as the United MileagePlus Explorer card, which also includes perks such as free checked bags and lounge vouchers. The Chase Sapphire Preferred also has points that can be instantly transferred to United’s MileagePlus program.
You must enter the giveaway below no later than 11:59pm ET on Monday, April 11. To enter this giveaway, visit our Facebook Page or enter below:
