Is there no end to the benefits of being a San Francisco Giant fan? Not only do you win the World Series about every other year, but your partnership with Virgin America is enough to make any frequent flyer jealous. And now this!
2-for-1 Virgin America flight vouchers to the first 40,000 fans in attendance at AT&T Park on Saturday, August 20th! Unfortunately, though, the cheapest seats available seem to be going for around $70 at the moment. Clearly, the value of this promotion has adversely affected ticket prices, as the surrounding games can be had for as low as $7 per ticket. Regardless, $70 to see a ballgame and save hundreds of dollars on a future flight is still an excellent bargain.
But there may be a way to make this promotion even more lucrative. It appears you’ll be given a 2-for-1 promo code as you enter the park, but then you’re free to do whatever you like with that voucher. Soooo, if I was attending that game, I might make some casual offers to other fans for their vouchers, perhaps in exchange for a beer or souvenir. Not everyone enjoys to travel, for some reason. Just a thought…
