In the spirit of their current #nonstopservice campaign, Alaska Airlines is picking up the tab for those who plan to fly home for Christmas on December 23 and 24. You can make a reservation through the Uber app, and Alaska will pay up to $50 of your bill. As usual for Uber, taxes and tip are included in the quoted price on the app, so this could easily pay for most of your ride.
Unfortunately, the promotion is only for trips to the airport, though I guess that makes sense as these are the people most likely to be potential Alaska Airlines customers (not those flying in, who could have their own preferred carrier in their respective home markets). I’d like to use it on my trip back on the 24th since Megan will be returning early and taking the car with her. Oh well.
Download the app on your phone, pick SeaTac as your destination, and the first $50 should be automatically charged to Alaska’s account during the two-day promotion.
More Terms & Conditions:
- The complimentary on-demand car service is for rides to Sea-Tac Airport only.
- Passengers whose rides exceed the free $50 trip will have the additional fee charged to their credit card on file.
- Uber rides available on a first-come, first-served basis. Cars typically seat four passengers and are available 24 hours a day. For information about Uber’s King County service area and pricing, visit http://blog.uber.com/UberSEAgift .
