Discount Code: Email Migration Warm Up

Looked at my discount codes and discovered one for "Email Migration Warm Up" --- it must be targeted because my husband didn't have it.

It's good for 20% off base fares for a single traveler for travel from May 28 through June 18. Ticket must be purchased by May 11.

Tried to add a second traveler, but got the red terms of death telling me that it's good for just one person.

Might be worthwhile checking out your discount codes if you haven't looked at them recently.

Here are the terms:

Discount: Valid for one discount of 20% off all base fare levels published at alaskaair.com, except Refundable Coach (Y class) and Refundable First (F class) fares. One discount allowed per reservation. Not applicable to Mileage Plan Award Reservations, Alaska Airlines Vacation packages, tour or contract fares. Any Discount Code value remaining after purchase is forfeited.

Reservations & Ticketing: Valid for new ticket purchases only at alaskaair.com. Discount Code cannot be applied to tickets that have already been purchased and issued. Discount Code is relinquished at time of ticketing and void for future purchases. Credit card required for purchase.

Passengers: The recipient of this discount code must be one of the travelers.

Routes: Discount valid between all Alaska Airlines cities, excluding Dutch Harbor and Prudhoe Bay, on flights operated by Alaska Airlines, Horizon Air, PenAir between Anchorage and Dutch Harbor, and SkyWest Flight Series 3450-3499. Based on published fare routings and some cities may not be available.

Advance Purchase: Per applicable fare rules.

Purchase By: May 11, 2014.

Travel Valid From: May 28, 2014.

Travel Complete: June 18, 2014.

Travel within the U.S. and Canada is valid Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday. Travel to or from Mexico is valid Tuesday and Wednesday.

Blackout Dates: March 28-30, April 4-6, 11-13, 18-20, 2014.

Minimum & Maximum Stay: Per applicable fare rules.

Flights: Valid only on flights operated by Alaska Airlines or Horizon Air. Not valid on codeshare flights.

Taxes, Fees and Surcharges: Passenger is responsible for all applicable taxes, fees, and surcharges, including checked baggage fees.

Combinability: Not valid with any other discounts, including Discount Codes, coupons, discount programs, MyAccount online discount, or other arrangements.

Changes and Refunds: Changes and refunds are allowed per the applicable fare rule and will result in the forfeiture of the Discount Code in cases where the modified itinerary does not qualify for the discount. Once issued, tickets are not transferable.

Mileage Plan: Mileage Plan credit applies and upgrades are allowed.

Transferability: Discount Codes may not be sold, bought, bartered, auctioned or collected in bulk. Any deemed by Alaska Airlines to have been distributed or acquired improperly will not be honored and traveler will be responsible for payment of full fare.

Additional Terms: All rules of alaskaair.com and the applicable published fare not mentioned within these terms and conditions apply.

Other: Discount Codes have no cash value and are not valid for travel. Lost or stolen Discount Codes cannot be replaced. Alaska Airlines has the final authority regarding Discount Code redemption. Travel is subject to Alaska Airlines contract of carriage. Terms and conditions as written herein are final and cannot be changed by any statement or representation of any unauthorized person, including employees of Alaska Airlines or issuing organization. Other restrictions may apply and Alaska Airlines reserves the right to suspend or change this offer without notice.

Code Doesn't Seem to Work....

The code doesn't seem to work between any city pairs or dates that I've submitted, so it looks like a bust.

There is a typo in the T&C's.

The Discount is valid for one person only.

I'd be interested in hearing more about the targeting principle behind this promotion. Not too sure what "email migration warm-up" warrants or means. Thanks in advance.

We are migrating to a new email platform, and this was the first round of emails sent from it.

I don't know, and I'm not sure I'd be at liberty to share if I did know who/how they targeted, other than they needed a smallish group to send the first round to.

I wonder if this offer was supposed to go out earlier? Why would past dates be blacked out?

Maybe that's the problem --- I haven't received an email --- was checking online to see if I had any unused Discount Codes and stumbled on this code.

Tried SEA - MSP (5/28 - 5/30) for the dates given and nada. There are discount fares available as well, not too sure why this is happen? Also the stated blackout dates are effectively moot as they've occurred outside the valid dates of the promotion. My bet is someone fat fingered something when setting up the promotion.

Returned Error:
