Is Alaska’s Free Companion Fare Useless? Some think so, some do not. Some think the whole debate post was useless (see comments). It’s no Southwest pass and getting to Tahiti is cheaper than going to Hawaii. That’s not a big selling point for me, Andaz Maui notwithstanding. Also, I ran a marathon in Alaska. Going to visit my buddy Robb up there again and convincing someone else to go see the old man is a tough sell. Finally, I have so many points and believe in Avios so much that the idea of paying for a ticket pains me, though I am risking life and limb flying Allegiant to Vegas for what is surely the greatest Hyatt Diamond Challenge ever.
But enough about me, this post is about you Alaska Airlines lovers. I have 6 more passes that I don’t want to see go to waste and will be handing out the codes a few months before each expire. This post may be a bit premature since they don’t expire till May 2016 and I just gave away the one that expires in October. But in the interest of good faith and because I’m in a good mood that college football is starting, I will give one away now, free of charge.
All you have to do is follow me on Twitter or Instagram and hashtag #TPOLinAlaska to enter. The winner will be announced on Sunday.
Note: The actual rules make it cumbersome for me to giveaway the pass. I’m going off of what a reader said who told me that I didn’t need to be involved in the redemption.
