Good morning everyone, happy Labor Day Weekend. If you live near the San Francisco Bay Area and want a discounted Alaska Airlines flight, listen up. Tomorrow, Saturday, September 4, the San Francisco Giants are giving out 2 for 1 flight vouchers on Alaska Airlines to the first 40,000 fans in attendance. Alaska Airlines (and previously Virgin America) are big sponsors of the San Francisco Giants and do this giveaway every year – I wrote about this promo in 2017, 2018, and 2019. If you want to get cheap tickets to the game, check out StubHub, SeatGeek, or Gametime. If you cannot attend the game, I am sure you will be able to find these vouchers on eBay shortly after the game.
The most important thing to know if you are considering this promo are the terms & conditions:

You only have a few days to use the flight voucher, so make sure you do your research ahead of time and know exactly which flights you want to book.
