Just last month, I was on an overbooked United flight to Denver. I was offered $600 in travel vouchers if I stayed overnight and got the flight home in the morning. I turned them down because I wanted to get home.
What I want to know is, can I use these vouchers for travel during peak seasons, such as Christmas and Thanksgiving?

Unless the coupons had any restrictions on them you could use them anytime, on any darem domestic or international. Generally the ones for overbooking are good for anything. Yes, like cash. You can not use them in the Skymall or any Star Alliance partners. Only on United.
Of course, you had to get them to use them. $600.00 is a large amount for them to give.

Yes, they have residual value. So you can ticket as many times as you want within that value.
Yes, they can be transferred, but no they cannot be sold. They require the person whose name the vouchers are issued in to be physically present when the ticket is issued, even if the ticket is for someone else.
