Another One Bites the Dust: United Airlines Ends the United.com Club
This week, we learned that United Airlines is officially retiring its Gift Registry, which has been "under renovation" for a couple of years. Prior to 2017, this had been a great way to use your airline fee credits available on a variety of credit cards. But while the page has said it would return after "maintenance" was performed, we now know that is not going to happen.
Unfortunately, that is not the only program United discontinued this week: The airline's United.com Club closed to new members within a day or two after I wrote about how the program has saved my family a few hundred dollars in flights over the years. (Talk about bad timing.) United's site states that the program is ending as it keeps "evolving the digital experience" for travelers.
Previously, you could pay $25 per year to join the club and earn $5 in United flight credit for each revenue flight purchased while logged into United.com. Those with active memberships can continue to use their membership through the end of the membership year, but there will be no additional renewals, and no new members can join the program.
