Bid United Miles for a NYC Spider-Man Appearance, Classified Dinner
Looking to redeem miles for something a bit different next week? United's latest MileagePlus auction definitely ticks that box. Through 1pm ET on Tuesday, Oct. 9, the airline's auctioning off two slots to serve as "extras" in the film Spider-Man: Far From Home.
The winner and a guest will get to spend Monday, Oct. 15 on the New York City-area set — a Sunday dinner at Newark Airport (EWR)'s Classified restaurant and an overnight stay at the Marriott Airport Liberty Hotel (worth $215 + tax at publication), plus a $100 Uber gift card to help with ground transportation are included as well.
Unlike the last auction, the winner won't be getting a trip to London, unfortunately, and United's not including airfare to NYC, but you'll also be redeeming far fewer miles — just 61,000 (worth $854) as of publication time, with less than 24 hours until the auction wraps on Tuesday afternoon.
It is worth noting that just because you're filmed as an extra doesn't guarantee that you'll get to appear — scenes can end up getting cut and a handful of technicalities (outlined here) could land your clip on the chopping block — but this experience is sure to be an unforgettable adventure nonetheless.
And if you do happen to hit the big screen when Spider-Man: Far From Home makes it debut on July 5, 2019, these will certainly be miles well spent.
