    Hi all, gotta love international mail..... I received my Platinum Elite cards today, Feb 3, 2012, that expired 3 days ago :)

    I know, stickers are en route to get them through the merger on 3/3,

    My question is that they also sent 4 expired continental currency vouchers. Although I don't generally use them, I usually give them to shipmates I see coming home from being in theater. Any word on if Continental/United is honoring expired drink vouchers?

    So far there has been no official announcement but it would seem that at the discretion of the flight attendants that they have been accepted so far.

    I've been using expired drink certs. The flight attendants don't look at the expiration dates.

    In my experience the UA flight attendants don't look at the expiration dates but the CO flight attendants do. At least I've been questioned when I've used expired certificates. I also seem to have lower upgrade rates on CO so I'm probably more apt to be needing to use them on CO.

    On a recent flight in coach, I gave my 'soon to expire' drink certs to the FA, and told her to use them on the next 3 passengers who ordered. She was very surprised, thanked me and told the receipients of the gift.
