Today marks the day when Continental and United frequent flyer programs have officially become one. To honor this day, we are giving away the last of our Continental Currency coupons, the best part is the coupons never expire.
Continental Currency Coupon Give Away
Three lucky winners will be selected and given a Continental currency coupon.
Each Continental currency coupon was good for a choice of (1) a premium beverage, (2) a headset while traveling on a Continental operated flight. Even though these are Continental coupons, there are FT reports that they are working on United metal. The best part is they never expire.

My favorite Continental memory was taking a trip to Hawaii with Mrs Weekly Flyer back in 2008. We flew on a Continental 767 in coach class to Honolulu. We selected two bulk head coach seats on the window side and really enjoyed the leg room. On the way home, we upgraded to business class for the over night flight. We’ll always remember taking our first trip to Hawaii together on Continental airlines.
Least Favorite Memory
My least favorite Continental memory was when I made a rookie mistake. I booked a coach ticket to Switzerland when Continental was part of the Sky Team Alliance. I was a Delta elite member but put my Continental number on the reservation. Since I was not elite member with Continental I only earned 1 mile per mile flown. Had I put my Delta SkyMiles number on the reservation, I would have earned a 100% bonus on miles flown due to elite status. I’ll never forget how I was stuck in the middle seat on a 767 for the entire 10 hour flight, both ways.
So what is your favorite or least favorite Continental memory?
It was great flying Continental when they were part of Sky Team, and great to fly them even after they moved over to Star Alliance. Continental had a good run and will be missed.
