    They were at Daley Plaza near the Picasso 15 minutes ago handing out goodies.

    If you're in the area, might as well keep an eye on their twitter feed and see what happens. Hey, you never know. :)

    Reminds me of the promo JetBlue did last year... having people chase them all over NYC, but if you showed up at the right time/place you ended up with a pair of tickets anywhere they fly.

    They've been doing it all week at their hubs. I believe DEN, CLE, EWR and IAD are yet to come. No word on if they'll be visiting GUM, too. ;)

    They were in DEN today I think. Might as well follow @United on twitter... hey, it's better than nothing. :)

    Unfortunately, it appears if you aren't within a couple minutes of their destination, you're out of luck. Today's Denver event was over in 13 minutes. No chance for anyone not working Downtown. :(

    Yeah yesterday they were at Daley Plaza, so obviously they're picking centralized locations. One-a-day type of promos are not nearly as good since you basically have to stalk them and be ready to run as soon as they post -- and even then it doesn't guarantee you'll make it.

    Still, free is free, and if you're around and end up winning then you don't mind it too much. :)
