Stickers to swap

I have many 1999 stickers on hand, and as I travel internationally most of the time, so I have little use on them. I would like to know if anyone here would like to swap for some black sticker with me. Please contact me through email

I've just found some CP upgrade certs that I didn't know I still had....
I thought i'd given them all away !

I have a set of 4 CS red 500 miles+ 2 CI grey Systemwide = 1 Initial upgrade pack

I also have a Ultimate upgrade set of 2 SWA Systemwide upgrades

These expire Feb 2001 :

What I would really like in exchange if possible is a NW International upgrade certificate or the same on CO - if such a thing exists ? I will probably need to use it only in September !

Thanks

I have 17 red stickers left over from last year and I would be happy to exchange them for black stickers!

Please email me and let me know if you are interested.

I raised this back when the new program GOLD and EXECPLATINUM booklets came out and people started talking about swapping upgrade stickers, but never did get an answer back then. So I'll ask again...

How do you propose to exchange this year's stickers (blues and whites) when they and the page they are held on must be presented intact in the booklet to the agent? What happens when an EXECPLATINUM member hands over a GOLD booklet they may have received in eachange for some of last year's stickers? Stickers that have been removed are not valid any longer, and I would assume pages removed from the booklets might also be disallowed.

(Now I suppose one could remove the stickers from the booklet page, stick them onto wax paper and exchange them, then stick those stickers into your own booklet...)

One method is to take out the staples and disassemble the booklet, and remove the upgrades along with the adjacent page.

The adjacent page to the stickers in the Gold booklet is the OneWorld Lounge information which we have no use anyways http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/frown.gif and you get to keep the remainder of the guide.

With this method, one can simply attach the swapped sticker page to their booklet.

I tried it on an unsuspecting AC agent on a trip from LGA-YUL and it works (took out the page from the Club booklet and reattached it to the Gold booklet)

However, the ExecPlat booklet have a whole centre page of stickers (12 White on the left and 6 blues on the right). Does that mean a EP can only exchange with a EP.

I think it'll be easier to exchange once we start earning those threshold upgrade packages.

But they only say we cannot remove stickers from the "sheet". I don't think it'll be a problem just giving the agent the upgrade page alone. Plus I don't think CP agents will be picky about that... don't know about AC agents..... never had to deal with them and hope never have to fly AC.

Empress,

I doubt the agent will have enough time to inspect your booklet, and there is always a legitimate reason why you detached the page from the booklet, just say "I don't want to carry the entire booklet around!"

Just my 2 cents...
