United Global Premier Upgrades on eBay
I’ve noticed people are selling GPUs for United on eBay for about $400. I’ve looked into it and it looks reasonably legit. That seems like a pretty good deal, but I’m wondering if anyone has any thoughts on whether it’s a good deal or not (given that space is available, you have the right fare class, etc.). [URL=’http://www.ebay.com/itm/UNITED-AIRLINES-PREMIER-GLOBAL-UPGRADE-GPU-ADVICE-EXPIRES-1-31-18-/152631022861′]Here’s an example[/URL]. Any advice is appreciated!
You’ll [I]probably[/I] be fine but selling instruments is against the policies of most airlines so if you get caught you’ll have little recourse.
I used to purchase people’s “time” on craigslist and receive a free upgrade. Some would want you to purchase in advance, with no refund if the upgrade did not clear. I always worked with people who did not charge if the upgrade did not clear. Never had an issue, but no longer do it.
