Are you fully vaccinated? If so, you can have a shot at winning free United flights for a year. To encourage travelers to get vaccinated and upload documentation of their vaccination records, United Airlines is running a sweepstakes offering participants the chance at free flights for a year. Here's how to enter and what you could win.
United's “Your Shot to Fly” Sweepstakes
According to recent data, 50% of the U.S. population has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. However, the U.S. still has a ways to go to reach the 70% threshold that experts estimate is needed to reach herd immunity.
If you're still on the fence about getting vaccinated, there's yet another reason to do so. United Airlines is offering vaccinated travelers the chance to win free flights for a year, among other prizes.
United Free Flights Sweepstakes Details
Now, through June 22, 2021, travelers that upload documentation of their COVID-19 vaccination records will be entered to win two possible prizes. This includes free flights on United for a year. Here are the prizes participants have a chance to win:
- Grand Prize: 5 winners receive one year of free travel to any United Airlines destination in any class of service for themselves and a companion
- Runner-Up Prize: 30 winners will receive a roundtrip flight for two in any class of service to any United Airlines destination.
In all, there are 35 prizes up for grabs. Free United flights for a year are limited to 26 roundtrips and $275,000. The 30 roundtrip prizes are limited to 2 tickets up to $7,700.
To enter, you'll need to upload your COVID-19 vaccine records by the end of the day on June 22. You can still add your COVID-19 vaccine records to your MileagePlus account after the deadline. However, if you do so after June 22, you will not be eligible to participate in this sweepstake.
