The United Contest that it Doesn’t Want You to Enter

United can’t get anything right. The email sent out July 1 “Enter for a chance to win a historic Scotland golf experience for two‏” leads to a contest page that two weeks later is still broken. This reminds me of the United-Marriott RewardsPlus registration website that is down more often than up (currently down). With a registration deadline of July 31, those who do succeed in entering stand a better shot at winning.
