Merry Christmas! The FlyerTalk Secret Santa Returns Again!
S ome of you who are reading this while sweltering in the late summer heat in the northern hemisphere may find this latest news refreshing, as for the thirteenth consecutive year, the Secret Santa Extravaganza occurs yet again on FlyerTalk — and once again, your host, coordinator and organizer is none other than FlyerTalk member wharvey, who founded the concept on FlyerTalk and launched the first thread back in 2003.
The expected minimum on which you should plan to spend on your gift purchase is US$50.00 per FlyerTalk member and does NOT include shipping, tracking and packaging costs — although no one will mind gifts of higher value or certain paper from airlines and hotels which are considered “priceless.” The gift should be a personal item and NOT donations to a charity organization on his or her behalf.
You may volunteer to be a Secret Santa for up to three different FlyerTalk members. Although there is no guarantee, you can “request” particular individuals you would like to get assigned to you for your gift buying. Secret Santas have the option of remaining anonymous. To participate, you must be a registered FlyerTalk member at the time you send your private message and not be merely a “lurker.”
The deadline to participate is November 20, 2015 at 5:00 in the afternoon Eastern Standard Time.
