Too Many Restrictions for the Virgin America $150 Off Companion Discount Code

Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday.  I have a short blog post to share before I head to MSP for a short weekend trip.  Yesterday, I received an email from Virgin America regarding my $150 off companion discount code. Last month, I wrote a post about downgrading / product changing from the Virgin America Premium Visa Signature Credit Card ($149 annual fee) to the Virgin America Visa Signature Credit Card ($49 annual fee). My new code is good for travel through 9/30/2018, so I have more than a year to use the code.  Two months ago, I wrote a post showing how to redeem your Virgin America $150 off companion discount code.  In that post, I showed how to search and book a Virgin America flight using the code and I also provided a warning for when not to use the code.  Unfortunately, the code does have a lot of blackout dates and restrictions, so I recommend trying to use the code as soon as possible.  Lots of holidays are blacked out, including Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Spring Break, and Fourth of July.  I have the full terms and conditions listed below for reference.

View Card Bonus Detail Popup for American Express Blue Business Plus Credit Card in Membership Reward Account

Good afternoon everyone.  I have a short post to share about a new feature I discovered this afternoon when I was browsing the Activity Detail tab of my American Express Membership Reward Points account.  When you look at the Activity Detail tab, you see a few ‘+’ icons next to your Membership Reward Point earning credit cards.  That part isn’t new, but when you click the ‘+’ icon next to the American Express Blue Business Plus Credit Card, you can see all your point earning transaction.

30 Day Unlimited Inflight WiFi Plan for $10 / Month with US Mobile & iPass

Update: Thank you to everyone who used the TWGWIFI promo code.  Unfortunately, I have reached the maximum number of promo code redemptions.  The current price is $10 / month for the 30 day unlimited inflight WiFi plan.

Good morning everyone.  A few weeks ago, I signed up for an unlimited inflight WiFi plan for $10/month.  The service works on Gogo equipped flights and Panasonic Avionics equipped flights in the US and around the world.  You also get access to thousands of hotspots on the ground too.  Instead of signing into each WiFi network or hotspot directly, you use their app to automatically sign you into any eligible WiFi network.  It was so simple and a great deal for $10/month.  I reached out to US Mobile to see if they had a referral program.  When they responded, they told me that they created a custom promo code for me to share with my readers.  I will share that promo code below along with instructions on how to set up your account and log into inflight WiFi networks.
