On Dec. 12, JetBlue revealed that it would be selling a new board game called Get Packing!
The game seemed rather simple. It came with a board, some cards, dice, a rule book, and oh yeah, a certificate for a round-trip flight.
Best of all? The game cost just $20, meaning for a measly Andrew Jackson you could get a round-trip flight anywhere that JetBlue flies between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2018.
“The holidays are all about celebrating traditions and creating new memories. But, we know that even the happiest families can get caught up in the tension of the holidays,” JetBlue's manager of advertising and content, Heather Berko, said in a statement. “With this in mind, we created ‘Get Packing!’ to save you from awkward moments by literally getting you out of there with a real JetBlue flight certificate.”
Of course, the game’s first release did come with a catch. In its first round the airline announced that they would only be selling 200 of these board games and limited them to only one per customer. So, as one would expect, they sold out faster than this year’s hottest toy.
But the airline is doing all would-be travelers a solid and are going to release 200 more games today, Dec. 18, at 3 p.m. EST. This time, however, it will be run as a sweepstakes, with 195 games going to the lucky winners and five being auctioned off to benefit Make-A-Wish. Just go to the JetBlue blog at 3 p.m. to enter.
