Drink Coupons for business travelers

Does any one have this problem? Tough to drink heading to business meeting or just wanting to get home safely from a business trip. It would be nice to trade these in. WIN_20170505_14_08_15_Pro.jpg

Maybe there is a neat origami project you can undertake.

 

A few times I had to book on short notice with Business Select and didn't use a coupon since it was early in the morning, but my collection isn't quite that large.

Some would say  "a pleasant problem to have".    Whenever I accumulate more drink coupons than I expect to use,  I  look for  a service member in uniform and offer him or her a coupon.

Many people now have many, many extra drink coupons, as Southwest recently settled a class action lawsuit over initially requiring Business Select drink coupons to be used only on the original flight (without stating that on the coupon). I received 60. 😉 Unfortunately (for me) but fortunately (for traveling partners and/or friendly people seated nearby) they all expire in May, 2018.

Service members are not suposed to drink alcohol while in uniform.

A great idea and one I've tried but my understanding now is a serviceman or woman is not supposed to drink in public when in uniform. Might be wrong though.

One way to get rid of some would be to throw away the ones that have expired....#humblebrag....
