I was a lucky winner of a United Airlines Package below:

 

Congratulations on winning the MileagePlus online auction,

the Nivea Stage for the live telecast, including musical performances and the
world-famous ball drop that ushers in 2013.

 

 

Your package includes:

 

  • Two (2) credentials to the reserved viewing area in front
    of the Nivea Stage for the NBC-TV New Year’s Eve Special in Times

    Congratulations!

     

    That sounds like a wonderful time!  Thanks to you I bought tickets to see "Book of Mormon" when it comes to St. Louis, next year!

     

    Until you brought it up, I had never heard of it!

        Jasper,

         

        That is a great deal!

         

        Please send pictures as you can.

         

        I now carry my camera everywhere as a result of your VIP shots.  Many times they allow non-flash pictures which turn out great!

         

        Have a wonderful time!

    maybe you'll get really lucky and get to meet some of NBC's finest; Chris Matthews, Andrea Mitchell, Racheal Maddow, and Al Sharpton.

        Sorry, didn't mean to slight Ed.  He does rank right up there with the rest of the crowd.

    How exciting!

     

    Have always wanted to be in NYC for New Years but those $600+ room rates have stood in the way.

     

    Usually I go in the day before New Years Eve (Dec 30th), and then return the day after (Jan 2n)

     

    For some reason, hotel rates are a fraction of the price, just with one day difference.

     

    Enjoy!

      Thanks..I was fortunate that the Westin Times Square (SPG Property) has a true no blackout date policy (unlike Marriott) that allowed me to use points to stay 28 December 2011 to 3 January 2012. So I got the room at a reasonable point cost and only booked it less than a week ago. None of the NYC Marriott properties offered the use of points for New Years Eve.
