Take note San Francisco area readers: Alaska Airlines is (literally) throwing out the first pitch at this Saturday’s San Francisco vs. Miami Marlins baseball game. That is, if you consider the first pitch to be Alaska’s famous companion certificate.
Breaking It Down:
Alaska Airlines Free Travel Voucher Giveaway
The Seattle-based airline is giving away 2-for-1 vouchers to the first 40,000 fans through the gates at Oracle Park stadium in San Francisco. Getting a free companion certificate for attending America’s favorite pastime? That’s a win.
The giveaway is to celebrate “Alaska Day at the Giants.”
A great thing about the vouchers is they have no age restriction. That means if children are some of the first 40,000 through the gates (a likely proposition) they will also get a voucher of their own! Maybe that’s means a lot of youngsters may get their first flight free, courtesy of Alaska Airlines. What a great opportunity for a trip that’s cheaper on the family budget!
I think this is a fantastic promotion. It also may open the world of travel to many new potential consumers. Plus those passengers might come to understand why Alaska Airlines takes top honors in the surveys on customer satisfaction.
How The Alaska Companion Voucher Works
The vouchers allow a person to purchase a coach-class, one-way or round-trip ticket at regular price and book a second (companion) ticket for just the cost of taxes on Alaska Airlines. However, there are specific restrictions on these vouchers.
These promotional vouchers come with some unique conditions:
- Flights must be booked by September 17th, giving the attendees just a few days to make their travel arrangements.
- Flights must originate from the Bay Area and the following nearby airports: Fresno, Monterey, Oakland, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose and Santa Rosa to any Alaska Airlines city (excluding Prudhoe Bay in Alaska.)
- Also, the dates of actual travel must be completed by February 13, 2020 and must commence no earlier than October 29th, 2019. There will be some blackout dates.
Alaska Miles With Other Credit Cards
If you enjoy travel on Alaska Airlines you should know it is a transfer partnership with Marriott Bonvoy, so you can transfer over Marriott points. The ratio for that is that 60,000 Marriott Bonvoy points converts into 25,000 Alaska miles (if you convert in different increments it’s a 3:1 ratio). Unfortunately, Alaska doesn’t partner with American Express, Capital One, Chase, or Citi.
