A chance to fly Mint for free!

These giant Mint premium cabin seats, including the private mini-suites, are coming to Boston starting in March 2016

Looking for a quick weekend getaway to Palm Springs just after new years? What if it was free and included JetBlue Mint seats from JFK? Yeah, that’s a bit more interesting.

The Greater Palm Springs Convention & Visitors Bureau is giving away a prize package for the Palm Springs International Film Festival, including JetBlue flights, hotels and more. And the flight out to Palm Springs will be in the big comfy seats up front on the Mint-configured A321. Coach coming home on the redeye, though. UPDATE: I missed it in my initial skimming of the rules but only open to NY/NJ/MA residents. :/

  • Two (2) tickets one-way on JetBlue with Mint seats from JFK Airport to Palm Springs International Airport on January 3, 2018.
  • Two (2) tickets one-way on JetBlue with (coach) seats from Palm Springs International Airport to JFK Airport on January 6, 2018.
  • Two (2) tickets to the 2018 Palm Springs International Film Festival opening reception January 4, 2018 and two (2) passes for screenings during the Palm Springs International Film Festival.
  • One (1) room at the Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa from January 3 – 6, 2018.

The declared ARV of the prize comes in around $3500 and, of course, the winner pays the taxes (more fine print here). But it is still a pretty cool deal for the film festival that someone has to win.

  1. I hope you are not going to be blogging about every raffle that comes along. This is not value added content.

    1. I’m sorry you didn’t find it valuable. I’m NYC-based and love the Mint product so it was relevant to my interests. And if you’ve read my stuff at all you know damn well I don’t post every contest/freebie that comes along. It is a Sunday where real news typically gets lost anyways and this sort of thing is generally well received. Except by you, it seems.

      Thanks for reading anyways and being pissed enough to leave a comment.
