With flights so expensive this summer they can be the most cost prohibitive part to going on vacation! This was certainly the case for our upcoming trip to Fallen Leaf Lake. With our trip coming up soon I set out to find the cheapest flights available! After much looking I found the best method was to fly with American Airlines to Reno and with United Airlines on the trip back. When I went to book our flights I saw that both American and United have “promotional codes” fields and it sparked my interest in finding out those codes!
I found that American Airlines has two promotions going on: Century in the Making and the Penalty Challenge. Both give you 10% off American Airlines flights along with the chance to win more exciting prizes!
How do you get 10% off? Its easy and will only take you a few minutes to complete.
Century in the Making
With Super Bowl XLV coming to North Texas American Airlines has the Century in the Making contest to determine the most “Legendary Football Moments” in four different categories. Each catagory allows you to vote for the top 5 moments and gives you with a 10% off code, emailed to you for only one use. You can enter once per category:
First Day of Entry Period – Last Day of Entry Period
High School Moments: March 1, 2010 – April 18, 2010
College Moments: April 19, 2010 – June 6, 2010
Special Moments: June 7, 2010 – July 25, 2010
Professional Moments: July 26, 2010 – September 12, 2010
Once you have voted for the top 5 moments and entered your American Airlines frequent flyer number, you will receive an email with a 10% off code that is valid for “travel from the 48 contiguous United States to any destination worldwide, for up to four (4) people traveling together. This discount may be used for ticket purchases made between June 7, 2010, and September 7, 2010, for travel between June 7, 2010, and September 7, 2010.” Each category will have different times for ticket purchases and travel so read your email details carefully. This contest also enters you into the contest to win tickets to Super Bowl XLV and other miscellaneous prizes.
Here’s are the Official Rules.
If you have more than 4 people (up to 6) in your party, or are taking two trips on American Airlines this summer check out the Penalty Challenge. To get the 10% off code, sign up to play the game, kick your 5 penalty shots, you will then receive an email with the code to enter to get your 10% off, and then you will receive an email with the 10% off code. This is only through June 30th for travel through August 31st so act quickly!
Here are the official rules.
Notes: If you don’t get American Airline’s emails check your spam folder, that’s where mine ended up first. You only get one 10% off email per contest so don’t delete the email accidentally! These contests are only good for purchasing tickets through the AA.com website.
I hope this money saving tips will allow you to enjoy a little more during your vacation this summer! 🙂
