100 possible FREE Continental OnePass Miles / United Mileage Plus

Posted in Airlines, Continental, Miles, Promotion, United with tags , , , , , on July 6, 2011 by getgowing

Continental has a promotion supposedly targeted to their branded credit cards, giving away 100 Continental OnePass Miles, but it never hurts to try even if you aren’t targeted.  Every mile counts towards that free business class trip to an exotic destination!  Here is the promotion registration link.  Registration ends August 30, 2011.  As a data point, I don’t own any Continental credit cards and I was able to successfully register.

If you do get these miles, don’t forget that right now you can freely transfer your miles between Continental and United until they officially merge the two frequent flyer programs, so these essentially could be 100 United Mileage Plus miles as well.  Continental OnePass will officially end at 2011 year’s end.

Cheap fares to Hawaii!

Posted in Continental, Deals, United with tags , , , , , on May 24, 2011 by getgowing

This is being discussed everywhere, on every travel blog I read.  There is an ongoing airfare war happening, and here’s another benefit for us travelers.  United/Continental has dropped fares to rock bottom to Hawaii. Here are some sample fares to Honolulu (including tax, for a roundtrip ticket, available in either direction):

  • SFO: $340
  • DEN: $423
  • ORD: $441
  • IAH: $474
  • EWR: $499
  • IAD: $518

These fares will definitely not last long.  Probably won’t even last until the end of today, 5/24.  But if you’re interested you can search for your trip on my default search engine, Kayak, then book it on  I would suggest you book now and work out the details later. bookings also have the option for their FareLock, which is like a stock option.  For my search EWR-HNL, I can place a hold on a ticket $9 which is good for 72 hours, or $15 for 7 days.  It would be worth it to me if I wanted some time to think about it.  So far, it seems these fares will last until 3/31/2012.  Jump on them before they’re gone!
