Will an upgrade coupon be accepted on a segment that starts before it expires but ends after it expires?

I'm thinking of using an upgrade coupon on the Cardinal leaving CHI on February 28 for NYP. Would that work?

(If only it were a leap year!)

Yes. the in date coupon can be used too start a segment that finishes after the expiration date. You will not have to degrade at midnight.

No, I have used coupons on the last eligible day. There was nothing on the ticket to indicate any difference with a regular ticket.  Similarly, AGR reward travel can carry over  into a blackout day, once started on a legal day.  I have done that.
