    I just came across several RCC Beverage Vouchers. With the new complimentary alcohol policy, are these still good for anything? Premium beverages in the RCC or onboard?

    LOL! Was hoping they had some trade value. Darn it! I always meant to use them to buy someone else a "karma" drink but forgot about them at the relevant times.

    its how I feel about the wifi cards. I must have stack of 20 of them. Each time I got to an rcc lounge, I find one already scratched off (due to poor housekeeping) on a table somewhere near where I'll sit. Would love to think there's a value to them. My wife when she travels alone will take a couple with her and camp near an RCC and borrow the wifi.

    I've recently used expired RCC chits onboard UA flights to pay for drinks. I've also pulled one out to pay for a drink while in coach, only to be told by the FA, "that's okay, put it away" who jthen ust comped me the drink.

    Of course, as always YMMV depending on the FA

    You automatically receive one every time you enter a RCC now, member or *G. They only work with the RCC login.

    Yes, if you are permitted access under *G rules (flying internationally on a *G carrier that day), you're entitled to full benefits, which include the wifi card. That changed a little bit ago when they started combining with President's Clubs.

    Even us *G's from outside the US which don't have the international flight restriction? :)
    Always found it annoying that we didn't get wifi access at UA clubs.

    oh, last time I was in a UA lounge was a while ago. probably a year ago. I have no doubt that the policy has changed since then, it was just really irritating. I actually skipped going in to the lounge at some airports which had free in-terminal WiFi.

    The vast majority of my travel is domestic (Canada) and most of the US airports I end up in don't have lounges, so I rarely have the opportunity to be in a UA lounge anyways...

    I have a stack of over 80 RCC chits, and now I can experience the joys of cheap well drinks or lousy Bud Light as the complimentary drinks in the RCCs. Are the drinks selection and choices any better in the CO Pres clubs?

    So is there anyone who has access to RCCs but wouldn't get the wifi cards? I have a stack that expires 10/11 that I could offer as I keep getting new ones each time and always use.

    Second. I used a small handful of my remaining RCC chits in flight, and they were never turned down. It's been 6 months since I last redeemed, but I'd be surprised if checking the chit fine print is high on their priority list.
