GIVEAWAY: Swinging Cup


They call it the Swinging Cup, even though it’s really a holder – a cup holder – that swings when you attach it to the handle of your suitcase.  When the makers of this product contacted me about promoting it,  I laughed, and then I listened, and then I decided to take it for a ride.  Honestly, I didn’t think it would work, but it does!  It works.  And it’s kind of nice to be able to run from gate to gate with one hand free.  Which is why I’m giving one away to a lucky reader.  All you have to do is a leave a comment (ONE COMMENT) and I’ll pick one random winner on Monday, June 10, at 10pm.

    It really works? Very cool!

  2. U S Grant

    Swinging chick, swinging cup…makes sense to me!

  3. My business traveling daughter would love this! That’s who I’d give it to if I’m chosen!

  4. Ann Keever

    Interesting. I would love to try it.

  5. Carlos Cortez

    If you say it works.. I’m willing to give it a try…

  6. Question does this work with paper cups or was it designed for the reusable cups?

  7. John

    I’m pretty random, most of the time

  8. So if I win will you ship it to the UK for me?

  9. Elaine

    As a tour director that leads folks all over the country, this would be perfect for me.

  10. This is amazing! I am always running between flights with a cup of coffee. Trying to pull bags and show my crew id to the gate agents with an extra cup was so annoying. I would looooove this!!!

  11. JoeG

    Will it fit in the overhead?

    • Only if you’re willing to part with it inflight! If not, you can always fold the handle wrap into the tray table in the inconvenient “upright and locked position” to hold your cup inflight. Otherwise, wrap it around the suitcase handle for easy overhead storage. Check out the YouTube video for instructions:

    This is fantastic!

  13. Carl S

    Looks like a cool idea

  14. Genius! Glad you Vined it or I would have been super skeptical of its use.

  15. Barry in La Jolla

    Cool … does it have an attachment for hanging from the seat in front of me? Imagine having a giant cup and asking the FA to fill it with Diet Coke. :) I crack myself up. :)

    • Actually, you CAN hang it from the tray table by folding the handle wrap into it when it’s in the locked position! Check out the picture on the website to see how.

  16. I want a swinging cup!

    Heather, I bought your book from Amazon UK and I really enjoyed reading it. I learned a lot about the F.A. lifestyle, something I was curious about and about which I couldn’t find much literature around here. It was a pleasure to read and I would certainly buy volume 2, congratulations!

  18. Gregory Davis

    Your video makes the swinging cup look great. Is there a way to attach it somewhere near the seat while I stick my bag in the overhead bin?
    June 10 is my birthday, so maybe I will be lucky.

  19. Like liquid soap… Simple but smart idea!

  20. Mary

    “ONE” : )))))

  21. Michael

    Excellent. I definitely want one. So it swings into me while I’m walking!

  22. Looks like a great way to make mixed drinks as well. Just add you fav. beverage, put it in a go-cup and get movin’

  23. Sarah T.

    This is kind of like the ostrich pillow. Everyone thinks it’s funny at first, but then gets it and loves it.

  24. Rodb2008

    Seems like it would work quite well.

  25. Looks “handy” and I love winning things!

  26. Sakti

    I want one!

  27. Sue taylor

    Wonder if it works on the bus and subway. Send me one and I will give the ultimate test I’m traveling next month out of LGA and have trains and busses to negotiate.

  28. Bob

    Sweet no more spills…lol

  29. Jan

    Awesome! I need one!!

  30. Michelle

    What a great idea! Between holding my phone, ticket, suitcase purse and my coffee, I need all the help I can get. Love it!

  31. Ok, everyone want’s one. Leaving for Iceland soon, can I win one? Pleeeeeeeeaaaaassssssseeeeeee! Otherwise, where can I buy one??

  32. Kathryn

    Wish I had these on my recent travels. The extra hand would have come in handy.

  33. Martyn

    Oh Jeeez

    She’s walking towards me, gorgeous, blonde, pristine looking, upright, high heels… those legs, that Swinging Cup, hanging, swinging, just like her hips, moving almost thrusting with every step. She gets closer… and closer. My heart is beating, faster and faster. Is she coming to me? Or is she just passing? My heart is beating so fast and loud, I can hardly hear my surroundings. She stops, just in front of me, she turns around her back is now towards me, she leans forward and down, almost in slow motion… those legs, that ass… so shapely… OMG!. I feel… the sexual tension is unbearable, what is she doing? She holds the cup… that Swinging Cup. Her hand and fingers wrap around it. She seems to be moving her hand up and down the cup. Is this just my imagination, can’t be, surely. She knows what she’s doing, she must do. She lifts the Swinging Cup, turns towards me then presses it against her lips. She PUSHes, harder, harder… against it, with her lips. Her eyes glazed, she looks at me, almost orgasmic. She slowly pulls the Swinging Cup away from her lips and hands it to me. She says “especially for you”. My heart’s beating so fast, I look… I see an imprint of her luscious lips on the Swinging Cup, deep RED… lipstick red. I can’t take my eyes off the imprint, I can almost feel those soft moist luscious lips on mine. She turns and walks away, surely… it must be… SKYDOLL. Then… she turns towards me and with her sultry looks says…

    (PS sorry about the length of the comment. Hope you like it.)

    • Heather Poole

      That Sultry look says, DUDE, Stop Staring at my Swinging Cup!


      WHO ARE YOU?

      Too funny

      • Martyn

        Congratulations to Mary and I must say that was a brilliant… and very fair way of Heather to pick a winner.

        Now where was I. Is she on her way to the plane, or… perhaps the CRASHPAD? Haha

        (PS promise I won’t continue with the story here. This comment is just for the congrat. PPS I tweeted you so you know who I am now, I think)

  34. tracey

    Sweet idea! Love it.

  35. Mike

    Pretty cool!

  36. The first thing that i thought when I say this cup is that I would probably leave a trail of coffee throughout the airport. It just seems like something that is bound to cause more issues than its worth. But, if it works, then great! I look forward to seeing people in the airport using them.

  37. Lina

    This is the best idea, I can’t believe I didn’t think of it after all the burnt fingers from spilled hot tea.

  38. DenverTodd

    My swinging cup
    I’ll fill you up
    Let’s have a party!
    Let’s have a party!

  39. I totally could have used this last week on a business trip in ATL.

  40. I guess it’s too late for me to join the giveaway. But, I love the idea of this detachable cup holder. Just have to make sure that the lid closes tightly to prevent any messes caused by spilling.
