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® 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.

  1. Does the New! Special Promotions section appear only if you are targeted. I don’t see any such section?
