I've only used it domestically, always 48- 24 hrs before. Usually I see the money gone from my CC before I get the Success email. I have about a 90% success rate getting the upgrades. Always bid very close to the minimum. I am Gold so I figure they're better off giving me the seat, than someone who wouldn't get lounge access anyway.
Thank you Dennis! This helps (It seems that I might be able to get some upgrades to business for my next trip to Hong Kong then)
Thank you Dennis.
My pleasure, good luck and enjoy the trip

I’ve only done it successfully on domestic routes but about 48 hours from an elevate ticket as VA gold

Not worth it unless your flight is over 3 hours.

I was notified 3 days prior, as a Platinum member on a Getaway fare, $10 above the minimum bid.
