Buy One Get One Flight – 50% Off For Two Virgin American or Alaska Airlines – After Attending S.F. Giants Game

What goes together better than Giants baseball and hot dogs? Well, Virgin American thinks Buy One Get On flights are a nice complement.

The Dealio

The first 40,000 attendees (it only seats 41,900~) to the August 19th San Francisco Giants home game against the Philly’s will receive a voucher. This voucher/coupon entitles you to a buy-one-get-one promo code to be used on a single booking.

Note that this BOGO still requires that you pay for the taxes on the companion flight. That means your effective discount is about 40% combined for the both of you on domestic flights. International itineraries will incur higher fees since there are customs and departure fees to be paid. ($80 additional to/from Mexico, for example)

If you purchased a domestic round-trip ticket for $297 and added your companion using this coupon, you’d only pay $60 for the second ticket. You’d save about $237 in this scenario. That should pay for a fun day at the Giants’ ballpark and sightseeing in S.F. Two people with a total round-trip for $357 versus paying $594 sounds nice to me!

 

Tickets

Alaska Airlines is acquiring Virgin America, who happens to be based in San Francisco. That means you can redeem this free companion fare coupon on Virgin America or Alaska flights.

It doesn’t say that you have to buy your Giants tickets from the official box office. That being the case, I like to buy my tickets using SeatGeek. Download the app and their pricing includes all fees, some great deals indeed. I found tickets for as little as $34 including all taxes. You could of course just wait until people leave and ask for their voucher. (keep it discreet)

Redeeming for a flight [Rules]

The big caveat is that you must book between August 19-22, 2017. That means you have about 72 hours to book after the game. I recommend checking out flights before the game so you have an idea of how you want to redeem.

Again, you and your companion must be booked on the exact same flights, must purchase using CASH or cash equivalent on alaskaair.com, and the flight must be operated by; Horizon Air, Sky West, Pen Air (all on behalf of Alaska Airlines), Alaska Airlines, or Virgin America.
