"Coaster Exchange"

As the coasters provided in the annual membership kits for 1Ks & GSs are of some interest to some and not so for others. This thread is for those that wish to make their coasters freely available to others.
-- this needs to be freely offer, no remuneration or bartering
-- for personal use only and not for resale
-- these are personal arrangements, FT or Moderators make no represenation to be a party in this
-- No unsolicated PMs

as stated
Members may post occasional offers to give away without charge to other FlyerTalk members, save for actual postage or shipping costs, souvenir or logo items of the membersí personal property related to United Airlines or Continental Airlines. These include items such as luggage tags, playing cards, posters, mugs, ticket jackets, or other related souvenir or logo items. The moderators may limit such posts and regulate the frequency of them, including consolidating them, when in the moderatorsí discretion, that is appropriate. This policy does not allow the offering through FlyerTalk of airline items described in the above paragraphs, such as vouchers, discount coupons, upgrades, miles, elite status offers, club or lounge passes, or onboard or ground food or beverage coupons.
Coasters would qualify as a "souvenir" item.

my wife really likes them and so do I. If anyone does not like them and would like to send me theirs I will make a $10 donation for every set I receive to the United employees charity (to a max of $50) . Couple of folks on here can Vouch for me.

Pm me if u want to do it.

I have kids. None of my furniture is worth protecting.
I'm happy to send the coasters to where they'll have a good home.

Maybe I live in a different world, but isn't it amazing that these things ( like the coasters ) find their way on to Ebay? Who opens his/her 1K kit and has the brilliant idea to
put some of it's content up for sale?

The same people who get free swag at conferences and put them up on eBay, or sell envelopes thinking that gets them a free pass on selling upgrade instruments.

I'm too lazy to sell stuff on eBay. Swag items go in the trash or brought to Goodwill unless my kids want it.

Much discussion (and photos) of the contents of the 2018 membership kits - in 2018 Premier Kits are Shipping - Have you received yours?

Remember this is a thread about freely exchanging the coasters, not about putting a price on or purchasing coasters.
