I’m sure you have heard the news about the Ashely Madison website getting hacked and the information of millions of married-cheater-wanna-bes being released online. Well, interestingly enough, being a scumbag married-cheater-wanna-be can score you a $50 discount on a trip via CheapAir. I’m sure Spirit and/or Frontier will have a similarly themed discount any minute now…
The CheapAir discount is being marketed as a way to try and mend some mistakes you may have made and take your loved one on a vacation – hey, whatever works. To qualify for the $50 companion flight discount certificate your email address must match a hacked account from the Ashley Madison website. If that applies to you, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to get the discount certificate and you must travel by 12/31/15.
If you aren’t familiar with CheapAir, they are a site that sells airfare for most of the major airlines (just like Expedia, Travelocity, etc.), so you can probably book the trip via your air carrier of choice and still save the $50 on the companion’s ticket. They even have a pretty cool “Price Drop Payback” that allows you to get a travel credit toward a future trip if the price of your flights drops by more than $10 (max credit of $100 per ticket).
Hopefully none of you were spending your online time at Ashley Madison (I mean come on, spending your online time learning about miles and points is much less hazardous to your relationships!), but on the off-chance someone was a card carrying Ashley Madison visitor, you might as well save $50 on a trip with your loved one. Hopefully a great vacation will be just what the doctor, or divorce attorney, ordered.
If you are trying to dig your way out of the doghouse, just make sure the rest of the trip is full of very nice hotels, spa time, and whatever else your spouse wants. Good luck to you and hope the $50 discount helps!
