Selling a credit
Hey guys, I have a totally unusual offer. For AC I had bought 2 plane tickets, but since the other party can't go, I have a $270.00 credit to JetBlue to fly anywhere in the country. Now, there's really nowhere in the country I want to go right now, and I could really use the money, not to mention I'd have to use this ticket within the next year.

Here's the deal:

I am going to sell this JetBlue credit for $270.00. Now, for those of you who know JetBlue, that is enough for a whole plane ticket (hell, it /was/ a whole plane ticket round trip from California to New York).

So is anyone interested in buying this credit from me? It's a code number I would give you in an e-mail once payment has cleared. You just turn that in at the time of purchase and either pay the difference of your flight (if it happens to be more) or it may in in fact be less and you'll have a couple bucks to use another time.

Please comment here if you're interested =)

Current Mood: hopeful hopeful

hrm... I may be very interested after AC? If you've still got it then, I just don't have the money right now. 0_o

my goal is to sell it before AC if possible because at this point, I'm pretty much stranded funds-wise due to a lot of problems I couldn't avoid. *cough*thebreakup*cough*. If no one's interested beforehand I'll leave it up as an offer though =)

Well, I defninately don't want you to save it for me if you can sell it beforehand, because I know how money problems are. 0_o

no no no thats fine, I meant that if no one wants it before AC I'll still leave it up for grabs for whoever else might want it after then. I'm just seriously hoping I get someone to buy it before then, cuz right now I'm literally counting change for subway fare.

Are you sure you can sell the credit to a third party?

Once I mistakenly bought a plane ticket for me, using Brian's Alaskan air miles, and the company would NOT let anyone else but Brian use that ticket. We had to jump through hoops and pay like a $100 penalty so that Brian could use the ticket to go somewhere else, and some other time, within one year's time...but there is no way on earth they would have let anyone else other than Brian use that ticket.

Everything's different since 9-11.

the lady at Jetblue said it was transferrable and anyone can use it. It will just be on record that it was mine originally, so if someone hijacks a plane using it, the feds will be at my door.

If you do not find a buyer, Thorn, I will purchase the ticket from you July 3rd or so. Just let me know a few days before.

If you need the money urgently, feel free to email me or leave a comment and I will pay now.

Unfortunately they do not fly out of DFW, but it would be nice to provide a friend with a free flight to AC

That would be just fine. I just need the money sooner rather than later as I will be traveling and won't have computer access, so if you're able to sooner it would be preferred but anytime /by/ the third is fine. I'm leaving the 5th of July offically for AC.

what is your e-mail? This a definite yes? Thank you so much for your interest.

It is. I can use it as a gift for friends for FC =)

Perhaps for you in the future if you need a trip out there. For now, my email is loiosh at g-mail. My livejournal email will reflect to that address as well. I would normally prefer Paypal for this kind of transfer, but I can do an expressed cashier check or money order?

Does Jet Blue go to Minneapolis?
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: June 17th, 2005 12:30 am (UTC) (Link)
From what I can tell from jetblue.com, I don't think they do. I think they fly to most major international airports though
liquidpenguin From: liquidpenguin Date: June 17th, 2005 12:55 am (UTC) (Link)
D'oh. My friend lives outside of Minneapolis. Maybe Orlando then.

Thorn, you flew into New York? How do you get from there to Phili?

I may offer this to a San Jose-r but I didn't realize they don't hit Phili.

The reason that I was flying to NY was because I was going to be visiting someone there and we were going to drive to AC together, but now since that is not the case and plans have changed, I'm staying with /another/ friend in NY, and we will drive to Philly. I have a hotel room in Philly I will be staying at at the con.

Ahh, ok, thanks, hehe.
