FREE companion airline ticket, limited time offer

First, I want to give the disclaimer that this offer is not available to everyone in the general public. It only applies to those in the military, veterans, or their families so if you do not fall into one of these categories then there is no need to go any further

I received an email today (well actually my husband who served in the Army for 15 years received the email but we share the same accounts) from the Veterans Advantage program with an offer that if you enroll by midnight tonight you are eligible to receive a free airline companion ticket.

Of course, there are a few stipulations. The website states that: 

The Discounted Companion Airline Ticket, is a special promotion. If purchased, a redemption form is emailed to you within 30 days of confirming your full membership. Please make sure to complete, sign and mail the form to the address provided. Once received, you will be sent a letter containing access codes for online booking. Our Discounted Companion Ticket covers travel in the 48 contiguous United States. Travel to Alaska, Hawaii and international destinations are not included. This special offer is not combinable with other offers you may see on our website. For toll-free assistance with your booking please call 1-800-633-3771. If you experience difficulties in redeeming your Discounted Companion Airline Ticket, please contact us immediately at1-866-VET-ASSIST.

There are several different plans to choose from and they range from a 30 day trial to 5 year membership:

There are many other benefits that come with a membership that range from travel, dining, shopping, health and wellness, and financial services that can make the membership well worth its money. This includes a 5% discount on all United flights booked online, 15% discount on Amtrak, or 20% on Greyhound to name a few.

Bottom Line

I know this offer may not apply to everyone but I'm sure many of us have relatives that either have served or are currently serving in the military and membership is open to their family members as well. That service member may already be deceased but this should not matter for enrollment purposes. This offer seems to be time limited and ends at midnight tonight so there is not much time to jump on this but overall it seems like a good deal. And finally, thank you to all those who served, both past and present.
