Maybe you were one of the people feverishly clicking “refresh” on your computer or mobile device earlier this week when JetBlue announced a really cool giveaway. I sure was, and was very disappointed when the dust settles. Even now, I still haven’t heard from a single person that managed to score this deal. And, the original post got a lot of traffic.
JetBlue seems to have heard the feedback and is changing how they’ll “sell” the next 200 games (that each include a free ticket). Deals We Like shared the details of the sweepstakes and charity auction JetBlue will be putting together this week. Quoting from the announcement:
Since the first 200 Get Packing! board games sold out so quickly we want to offer everybody another chance to Get Packing! for the holidays, so we’re back with 200 more games! This time we will be hosting a sweepstakes so you can have a chance to win one of 195 games. For the remaining five, we will be auctioning them off on Charitybuzz to benefit Make-A-Wish®. So, you can enter the sweeps for a chance to win or bid on Charitybuzz and do some good while you’re at it (or both!). Terms apply: http://www.charitybuzz.com/terms
You can register for the giveaway starting tomorrow, Monday, December 18th at 3pm EST. It’s free, so don’t forget!
The Final Two Pennies
This strikes me as a big improvement on what they did last time. Scoring an airline ticket for less than $50 ($20 for the game plus taxes/fees) is a great offer. Not only was there high demand, the sheer speed of the sell-out (pretty much instantly) likely means that some bots were involved.
I don’t have a bot, just two thumbs to click refresh with. While my chances of winning a free ticket for one of my readers will likely still be quite poor, at least I know I’ll have a free shot. And, JetBlue stands to raise roughly $1,000 for charity by auctioning off 5 of the games.
Is it bad that as an aviation geek, I want a copy of the JetBlue game more than I want the free airline ticket?
Good luck in the new giveaway!
