Seattle Mariners Alaska Airlines Voucher
When a baseball team isn’t selling tickets, they will often do a giveaway promotion to entice fans to come to the game. The Seattle Mariners have had a long dry spell in the winning season department; they haven’t made it to the playoffs in 15 years. Tonight, June 7, they partnered with the hometown airline for the Seattle Mariners Alaska Airlines Voucher promotion.
The first 11,500 fans to arrive to the Indians vs Mariners game at Safeco Field in Seattle were given a paper voucher with a unique discount code that could be redeemed online for up to 50% off a flight for two people on the same reservation. In reality, I don’t think there were even 11,500 spectators at the game, so I think everyone was able to get a voucher or two.
There were lots, I mean LOTS, of conditions to the Seattle Mariners Alaska Airlines voucher.
First, you had to use the discount by 11:59PM on June 8th. That gave customers about 30 hours to book their flight with the discount.
Second, it was only good for flights from September 15 to November 15, 2016.
Third, the largest discount was only available for select cities. If you used to fly to an unlisted city you still received 10% off the flight. You were required to depart from SEA. The cities with the big discounts were:
- Los Angeles
- San Francisco
- St. Louis
- Kansas City
- Great Falls
- Colorado Springs
In order to get the full 50% off, you also had to travel on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Saturday. If you traveled on another day, you got 25% off.
I ended up using my Seattle Mariners Alaska Airlines voucher for 10% off a flight to Las Vegas in the fall. There were some deals where you could get a round trip to LAX or SFO for $108 with the discount so there were deals to be found if you had the flexibility.
I do have to say the cities picked were a bit random. I figured maybe it had something to do with where the Mariners were going to be playing, like they have done with previous promotions with MLS, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. A similar promotion was staged earlier this year with the NBA Portland Trailblazers.
