    I'm a college student and will be graduated from college in June. My mom is visiting me from Taiwan and have a UA reservation. I was wondering if anyone had any UA GPUs that could be used during this time. I have some Hilton or United points that I can exchange. Please contact me at TheOfficialLago2 at gmail dot com. Thanks in advance for any generosity.

    Welcome to MP. :)

    You might want to remove your email address and type it out to prevent the bots from forever spamming you (or some crazy person on teh interwebs).

    Best of luck getting your GPU!

    Or perhaps UA looking up that email address in their database and matching it to a MP account or reservation and then taking action for bartering.


    I suspect that lots of luck will be needed to find a willing 1K. Bartering with a new user who also reveals an email address seems rather risky.

    Unfortunately I do not have a spare GPU. One thing to note, GPU can only be applied to UA fares that are W or higher. If the reservation is for any fare lower than W, the GPU is not able to be used.

    You do have a viable alternative to use Miles+Cash right now for an upgrade.

    Rarely a good value proposition.

    Agreed but when someone is not an 1K and wants to sit up front they can either pay for F/J or use their Miles+Cash to sit in F/J.

    Depends on how much you value your mom if she's the traveler :)
