Four Free United Club Passes for Your Holiday Travels

Airline lounges can be a great haven during the madness of holiday airport travel.  Airport lounges have (limited) free drinks and snacks, internet, a relatively comfortable place to sit, and knowledgeable agents who can help in the event you have a question or problems with your flight.  Some of them even have family rooms!  This is much better than the madness you will often find at the gates around Thanksgiving and Christmas!

If you already have lounge access, then you already know all of that, but for those of you traveling this holiday season without lounge access I want to offer four United Club passes with a 12/31/13 expiration date courtesy of super Mommy Points reader aptraveler who wasn’t going to be able to use them before the expiration date.

  1. My wife and I will be going to Las Vegas to meet with her parents and spend Christmas with. We would love to have lounge access at LAS! Thank you.

  2. My girlfriend and I are heading to Napa Valley (DC to SFO) right after Thanksgiving, so the passes would be very handy in making it a more comfortable trip. Wish Amex Platinum gained entry to United lounges!

  4. I’m flying home with my fiance to Houston for Thanksgiving break on United and would love to have my first lounge experience this year!

  5. My husband and I will be headed to Ukraine and Azerbaijan with stop-overs in Turkey and Germany this December, and the lounge passes would be a HUGE welcome with all that flying–although part of the trip is for business, it’s for a university and, therefore, we’re economy all the way! Would love to be able to stretch out and have some good nibbles at least on the layovers! Thanks, Mommy Points!!

  11. We’re leaving in-between Christmas and New Years to visit family in Hawaii. We’re non-reving so it’d be nice to have someplace to go while we’re waiting to get on a plane, especially if we’re waiting at the airport all day. =)

  14. We are flying back to see the Macy’s parade in New York over Thanksgiving! I was able to use my miles for the flights and also for the hotel in Manhattan (thx to YOU and all your great advice). I haven’t seen the parade in person since I was 12.
