    As always, a case of YMMV and the "never" is really not correct... I have gotten better value out of a free trip voucher than if I had picked the $$ off vouchers when UA still offered free trip vouchers. Sure, they don't earn mileage, but if you can use them for travelers where the mileage earnings don't matter, this is not a disadvantage.
