Generous reader Debashish has donated a pair of United Club passes that expire January 31, 2014. Thanks, Debashish!

Here are the United Club locations to check whether you’ll be able to use a pass on your next trip.

If you can use the passes between December 15, 2013 (because they will take a few days to get to you) and January 31, 2014, there are two ways to enter to win them!

  1. Comment on this post. (Are you one of the people who receive one free daily email every morning with all of the day’s posts? Click the post title in the email and comment on the blog instead of replying to the email.)
  2. Retweet this tweet:

You can enter both ways.

I’ll pick a winner early Monday morning, email the winner, and get the winners’ address to Debashish.

If you don’t win, you can always get lounge access worldwide with The Platinum Card® from American Express. (For more info on the lounge-access benefit, the $500 in statement credits in the first 12 months, and the card’s other benefits, see Get the Most out of Your American Express Platinum Card.)

Earn 80,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. Plus earn up to $50 in statement credits towards grocery store purchases within your first year of account opening.

Just getting started in the world of points and miles? The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for you to start with.

With a bonus of 80,000 points after $4,000 spend in the first 3 months and 2x points earned on dining and travel spend, this card truly cannot be beat for getting started!
