Bye Bye Paper! United Airlines Club Passes Have Gone Digital

You might recall from a few months ago that I went to the San Diego Airport to gift my expiring United Airlines Club passes to two lucky people who just happened to be in the right place at the right time. It was a fun way to spend a few hours, and it mostly went smoothly! Looks like United Airlines has gone the digital route with these club passes as of November 2017.

Here’s the letter I received. You’ll notice that United will now be automatically adding these passes to our accounts within four weeks of our Chase United MileagePlus Credit Card anniversary date.

You’ll notice on the second piece of paper where United gives instructions about how to use these passes within the United app, there is also the choice to download and print these one-time passes.

That has me wondering if I’ll be able to download, print, and give the passes if I can’t use them. Perhaps United will now be linking the passes to the cardholder, restricting who could use them. Time will tell. Wondering if this makes a difference to any TWG readers. If so, let me know.

      Thanks for commenting, Suzie. I think once this gets going we’ll see more data points and know what will work and what won’t. Time will tell!

    yeah, i’d love data points on if you can gift…or be gifted….a printed version associated with a particular account of a person that is not flying.
