Hello friends! I am using an Alaska Airlines Companion Pass to help a pair of travelers get to their destination a lot cheaper. In the last year, I’ve used my companion passes three times and saved the recipients over $2,000 on flights.
The Alaska Air Companion Pass allows for the purchase of a second ticket for approximately $120, regardless of how much the first ticket cost. For example, a flight from NYC to Hawaii on Alaska Air often costs north of $1,000 round-trip, but with this pass, instead of $2,000 for two people, it will be closer to $1,120, or a savings of about $880. Here's the list of travel destinations served by Alaska Airlines, including two cities in Costa Rica and nine in Mexico!
I have really enjoyed helping make some travel dreams come true with these passes, but in the past, my method for distributing the passes left some equally-worthy recipients at a disadvantage. This time around, everyone who completes the three tasks below will have an equal chance at the companion pass (I'll even be helping you book your flights). In one week, I will use a random number generator to pick the lucky winner!
Here's what you need to do:

Share a link on facebook to my post with helpful strategies for using Airbnb
- Go to the Thorpe Travel facebook page and describe the trip you’d like to take on the Alaska Companion Pass Giveaway post (don't forget to like the page!)
Best of luck!
*A few things to keep in mind: the pass can only be used on Alaska Air flights and I will only redeem if savings from the flights total at least $200 for the recipient. The best uses of this pass are for flights to Hawaii, one of Alaska's international destinations, trans-continental flights, or for flights that are expensive because of busy travel dates. Alaska Air terms state I cannot give this pass away, since the owner must be flying or paying for the flight, so I will be booking your flights and you will reimburse me.
