Consolidated Drink Voucher / Coupon Giveaway Thread

I've seen a few postings here occasionally where someone has some drink vouchers to give away. I've also seen in other airline's forums (fora?) a consolidated thread for everyone to post their drink coupons. That gives anyone looking for coupons a single place to go to find them being given away, and encourages others to give coupons away since they see the thread popping back up.

Here's how it works: Post here that you have coupons to give away. When people respond (ideally via aPM with their email address), send them a PDF printed from the website or a screen shot from the app on the phone. When you've given away all you have, return here to edit your post to say the coupons are gone.

I'll start: I've got 8 drink coupons to give away, with expiration date 1/31/2019. I'll do these two at a time, so the first 4 people to PM me with their email address will get a couple of PDFs of my drink coupons. When they're all spoken for, I'll update this post to let everyone know. And, anyone else with coupons they're not going to use, please post here!

Enjoy!


---------------

All coupons are spoken for, thanks!

I searched and searched and couldn't find one. So, if there is an existing one, let's promote that instead, but also work on making it more findable.

In order to gain access to the Coupon Connection, you have be a FT member for at least 6 months and have a minimum number of posts. Can't remember offhand how many posts are required, but that is why OP cannot see CC.

ETA: found in wiki - minimum 90 days and 90 posts

EDIT: I see someone just beat me to it...

It's called Coupon Connection and it's here

https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/coupon-connection-373/

Seems to have extra limitations on it...but worth checking out.

So someone cant even see it? Its not just access restricted for posting, but actually invisible until you meet the threshold?

I might only have a dozen or so posts, but ive been reading the forums for years and have seen drink giveaway posts pop up with some regularity. I would think having a visible forum or thread like this would be a nice way to keep those threads from popping up and to encourage others to be generous. Thats harder to do if its invisible.

My goodness, 90 posts? That seems really high. Im pretty sure none of the people I gave my vouchers to actually meet that threshold. I certainly dont.

I just dont have a lot to say generally. I obviously like to chip in and help (or I wouldnt have started this thread), but would prefer to only post when I have accurate helpful information or something else to offer. Otherwise Im just a lurker.

Ironic that if I posted 90 posts on how I really feel about the Delta uniforms instead, Id be valued and trusted enough to give away some drink vouchers.

I haven't been on CC in years (and obviously don't post much - maybe 500 posts in like 13 years?)

Many of my posts were pre-Delta on NW and Midwest Airlines.

To keep on topic - can you even give drink cards away any more? I guess I mean the ones that show up digitally in your wallet, not printed ones. I suppose you could screen-shot on your phone and send to someone.

What other DL stuff could you trade/give away? I do have a couple of NWA coffee cups that 'fell' into my bag just around merger time

While we are on drink vouchers I have already requalified for Platinum in 2019. Do you get vouchers for that? None are in my wallet.
