This is the second time we have received this offer. We took advantage of the first offer last year and over a period of several months in trying to process the airline tickets, we found that they, infact, were not free, nor were we able to get the reservation times we wanted. We were required to pay not only the airport taxes and fees, but also additional charges that totaled somewhere between 180 to 290 dollars depending on where you traveled to At this point we backed out of the deal, and over a period of several more months, we finally received our initial deposit refund of 100 dollars.
"Global Vacation" is sponsors of this so called promotion, and if you sit through their advertisement session, they provide you with information on how to get your free airline tickets. They advertise flying free on several airlines, such as Delta, Southwest Airlines, Jet Blue, and other major airlines, even if you do not sign up for their vacation packages. What is printed on the back of their "make believe boarding pass," is the following: "This promotion is not sponsored by or affiliated with Southwest or Jet Blue, they are a major supplier."
This second invitation (a "Happy Birthday Card") gave a reservation number. To claim the free airline tickets for two, you have to call 1-866-885-0572, which is the phone number of a marketing team. There is no mention of any type of session you have to attend on the card, but when you call, you are told that you must attend the advertisement session for Global Vacation packages.
Other so called companies that are a part of this scam includes "Infinity Incentive Group," and "Flyaway."
