Yes, you read that right! I have managed to tie together some of my Boeing and Alaska swag for yet another contest. One of my readers, @Kofucious, works at Boeing and recently gave me some awesome 787 swag to give away. Actually, not that recently. I got it in August and then promptly lost the bag when Megan rearranged all the furniture in our apartment, which she tends to do when I disappear on my mileage runs. But I digress.
I have for one lucky winner a 787 Dreamliner baseball cap, a key chain, and a baggage tag from the Boeing gift shop not far away. They will make a nice addition to the travel experience for any of you with an upcoming flight on one of the new 787s, especially now that United is beginning to roll out domestic flights this fall and international flights early next year.
But that’s not all! @Kofucious and I talked for a bit, and he wondered why I never write anything about Alaska Airlines. I included it in my elite status comparisons last week, pointing out how it really does offer some amazing benefits. It’s also a good place to park orphan miles since they partner with several different airlines. Like many things in Seattle, it enjoys a lot of hometown loyalty. So I’ve decided to throw in this AMAZING inflatable Alaska Airlines hat! For some reason my dad didn’t want it and gave it to me. Here you can witness its stylish awesomeness. Yes, I have pointy elf ears.
But that’s not all! Because of my flop on Thursday, with several omissions from the mid-tier elite status comparison, and because people felt I wasn’t giving Alaska Airlines proper respect, I’m going to include a $50 Alaska Airlines gift card. Use it the next time you fly with them and show off how much better educated you are about their amazing airline.
The Prize Package
- One Boeing 787 Dreamliner baseball cap (black)
- One Boeing 787 Dreamliner keychain
- One Boeing 787 Dreamliner baggage tag
- One awesome Alaska Airlines inflatable hat
- One $50 Alaska Airlines gift card
How to Enter
You must prove that you know more about Alaska Airlines than I do, which won’t be hard. Comment here or use Twitter to tell me one thing about Alaska Airlines that I should know, that I should write about, that you’d like to learn more about, or that you think should make me run out and change my airline loyalty right this minute. If you have multiple ideas, you can enter multiple times, but please limit yourself to one idea per entry. If you use Twitter, please use the hashtag #AlaskaSays so I can find it later. Let’s show @Kofucious that I take his request seriously.
I’ll take your suggestions and do my best to include more Alaska-relevant coverage in the near future. The contest will run through Thursday at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. I’ll select a winner randomly and announce him or her on Friday. Any questions? Send me an email.
