    Well finally make the MM club. Received my MM 1K card etc. along with drink chits. With the ones I already had I have about 20 now. They are all valid until Jan 2017. I don't drink much and with the 1K comp drink that is enough for me. I would be happy to give some to anyone that would like a few. I would be happy to give four x 3 requests if someone would care to have them.

    FWIW, I've never had an expired one rejected by a FA.

    Won't be flying UA in 2017 so really don't need them.

    Sure, and I'm not suggesting you should keep them versus giving them away; more just letting folks who claim them know that the lifespan may be even better than advertised. :)

    I'll take some off your hands! I've got a trip in May I could use them on. Thanks for the generosity!

    Seth is perhaps more charming than I am, but I've never had an
    expired drink chit accepted.

    Hmmm.... My experience has been the complete opposite. Even when I would disclose to the FA that a chit expired, s/he would simply smile and take it. It has never failed...

    Chits have all been claimed. I hope those that received them enjoy them.

    Yes, never had an issue with an expired chit.. Just finished my 1/2016 stack.. Now onto the current ones. I have noticed that they (FA's) have pushed them back of recent and said its on me..

    I ran into some in the back of a drawer from Continental that had expired in 2012, and asked when on an award flight on United in March of this year if they would still be accepted. "Sure," was the response, so I had a drink on Continental. :D
