Is a JetSmarter Membership Worth It?

For three months this summer I had something I absolutely never thought possible, a private jet membership. Thanks to an awesome (and short-lived) JetSmarter promotion, those who could demonstrate they had certain airline elite status or a million miles and points could have a free JetSmarter Simple membership for three months. While I didn’t take a flight at all for the first half of this trial as life with two small children doesn’t align well with jetting off at a…

Flying in a Private Plane With a Two Year Old

I think it is pretty clear at this point that the coolest airline miles related promotion I have ever participated in (and potentially will ever participate in) came thanks to JetSmarter earlier this summer. They offered three months of free Simple membership to anyone who could prove they had either top tier airline elite status or a million airline miles. Simple membership gets you a free seat on their scheduled shuttle flights of three in length hours or less and…

Saying Yes to Travel Adventures

Miles, points, and travel deals have opened more doors for me than I could have ever dreamed when I earned my first airline mile about 18 years ago. I can’t even make a list of the most amazing opportunities that they have provided at the moment because it sounds ostentatious, even in my head. To put it mildly, let’s just say that because of this travel deals hobby of ours, my family has had opportunities that we otherwise 100% could…

What It Was Like Flying in a Private Plane Today (for free)!

I’ve had a few wild and crazy travel dreams in my 36.5 years on earth. Some have actually happened and some haven’t happened quite yet. However, I don’t really remember ever having “fly on a private jet with friends” on my list of travel dreams. I mean, who really gets to do that? Well, apparently I do. At least I did today, and most shockingly of all…it was free.   How I Flew a Private Plane for Free First things first,…

Free JetSmarter Deal Honored, But Also Now Dead

Last week I shared news of a seemingly ‘too good to be true’ offer from JetSmarter that awarded three months of free private jet membership for those who could prove they have top tier airline elite status, or 1,000,000 miles and points, or even a lifetime earning total where you have already spent some of the miles but could prove you earned them at some point. It was really a pretty generous offering and I did not expect it to…

Positive Update on Free JetSmarter Trial Memberships

A few days ago I shared a very interesting promotion put on by JetSmarter, a company that facilitates private jet flights, where they would offer a three-month free Simple membership for those who could prove they have either top tier airline elite status or 1,000,000 miles or credit card points in one account. In fact, you don’t have to currently have the 1,000,000 miles in one account at the moment – you just have to have that as a provable lifetime…

Free JetSmarter Membership for Three Months for Frequent Flyers?!

What could be better than flying ‘for free’ using miles and points, well how about flying ‘for free’ on a private plane? Okay I am keeping a healthy dose of skepticism on this one for now, but I went for it, so I’ll share it here in case it isn’t ‘too good to be true’ but actually works out!   JetSmarter is advertising that they will give a three-month Simple membership to anyone who has 1,000,000 frequent flyer miles or…
