Points, Miles and Martinis reader Pdubs alerted the PMM team to a very lucrative targeted promotion from AirTran. The email sent out to targeted flyers reads as follows:
“As a highly-valued Member, we’ve created a special offer that will help you earn a one-way reward flight when you purchase a one-way flight! Yes, you’ve read that right. From now through September 30, 2012, you can earn up to two one-way reward flights or one roundtrip reward flight when you book and complete your travel between now and September 30, 2012!
Here’s how it works: purchase and travel on a qualifying flight, and we’ll give you seven bonus credits in addition to the standard credit you normally earn, for a total of eight credits for Coach travel or eight and a half for Business Class travel—the same amount needed for Coach reward travel!
This offer is limited to a maximum of two one-way reward trips or one roundtrip reward trip.”
To take advantage of this promotion, follow these simple steps:
- Step 1: Log in to your A+ Rewards account. Once you’ve accessed the Member home page, find this targeted offer in the “new! special promotions” section and click the “Register now” link.
- Step 2: Register for this promotion between now and September 30, 2012.
- Step 3: Book a qualifying one-way or roundtrip flight at airtran.com® between now and September 30, 2012.
- Step 4: Complete your travel between now and September 30, 2012.
The bottom line
These promotional emails often get snagged in spam filters so I would recommend following the steps above to see if you are targeted for this lucrative offer. AirTran is essentially offering a Buy One Get One Free flight which is a great opportunity to collect AirTran credits to use on AirTran for International flights or to transfer over to Southwest, my carrier of choice for domestic business travel.
