Enter to win a United Global Premier Upgrade!
Read this post and scroll down to our entry app for a chance to win.
What’s a Global Premier Upgrade?
You can use a United GPU to upgrade certain tickets to first class in one direction on United metal flights (no codeshares please!). It applies to all your connections. If no upgrade is available, you can go on a wait-list, and you’ll get your GPU back if it doesn’t clear. (Though be careful for flights after January 31st!)
The more legalese version of how you can use it: United GPUs can be used for W or higher fares on any route operated by United Airlines. Domestic routes and select international routes have no fare restriction. Upgrades may be restricted by availability. If an upgrade cannot be immediately confirmed, you will be placed on a wait list. One GPU is required for each individual traveling in each direction. Please visit http://goo.gl/VzC2Y for more information.

The Entry Form
Disclaimer: This contest is not provided for or sponsored by United and is not associated with it in any sort of way, other than we chose to give away a United Product. The GPU comes from our (dwindling) personal collection. We are not responsible if United unexpectedly changes rules after this promotion, or if the winner fails to use the item in a timely manner. We are also not responsible if you do not enjoy your trip, but we sincerely hope you do. We have not been given anything for this promotion, nor have we bartered or been bribed. We will award one (1) Global Premier Upgrade on September 20, 2013. It is good for travel booked and completed by January 31, 2014. Ticket must meet all the GPU rules: http://www.united.com/web/en-us/content/mileageplus/premier/swupgrades.aspx. The winner will be contacted with more details on how to redeem their GPU. Please note, I have never flown United First before, so I will be insanely jealous, but Keri has so you can compare notes. This is getting really long. I will stop typing now.
