Interestingly enough, United has extended the double/triple EQM promotion until October 15 for residents of Australia and New Zealand. I think it’s fair to say that this has something to do with Delta entering the market. Despite it being the low season down under, there has never been a better time to “live” there. 😉
That being said, I have no intention of “moving” to Australia. I have a feeling United will have a lucrative promotion later in the year, and chances are that it’ll be for US residents only (or at the very least exclude some other countries). Given that I have 300,000 EQM’s so far this year with the double EQM promotion and don’t plan on traveling a whole lot on revenue tickets after tomorrow, I’ll sit on the sidelines and watch.
