JetBlue Has Free Flights and Teddy Bears for New Yorkers Tomorrow
JetBlue will give away more Vermont Teddy Bears and free flights tomorrow when it launches its own version of the Amazing Race in New York City.
Tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST, JetBlue will provide clues via Twitter (@jetblue) on the hour every hour that represent the 10 most romantic locations in the city, including places in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. Each spot will be marked with a four-and-half foot tall Big Hunka Love Bear from Vermont Teddy Bear (trust us, you can't miss it). The first person to show up at each location and correctly use the secret code word that’s Tweeted along with the clue will win the bear and two roundtrip flights to any JetBlue destination.
So, in theory, you could have up to ten roundtrip tickets for two in your hand by the end of the day tomorrow if you're really good, although having the locations spread out across the city pretty much prevents that. Still, snagging even one pair of tickets would make one hell of a gift for your Valentine (or instantly make you one of the more eligible bachelors/bachelorettes in the city). You can feel good about your fortune as well: Each winner will also receive a pair of roundtrip tickets to donate to a charity of their choice.
This contest is good news for New York City residents, but JetBlue isn't forgetting about the rest of us. Starting tomorrow through Wednesday, February 13, you can tweet an image with the hashtag #LoveYourBlueCity that "shows your love" of any of JetBlue's 75 destinations. Three trips will be given away in total, and the winners will get a trip for two to any place JetBlue flies. Winners and photos will be announced on its blog on Valentine's Day, so get creative!
We're thinking that kissing in front of the skyline won't be enough, but that's probably a good place to start.
