    I have just received today this notice via e-mail
    Question—Please explain the meaning of the word “potential” in the following notice ?

    Congratulations, you have been selected as a potential winner in the #TWOGETHER Sweepstakes. You have won 2 certificates that can be used toward round-trip economy tickets on Alaska Airlines or Virgin America. The Grand Prize has an approximate retail value of $1,100

    Thank You

    1. Brian Cohen says:

      My guess is that you were selected — but not yet officially verified — as an eligible winner, Ron Biagini.

      Congratulations and enjoy your trip!

      1. katina says:

        I cannot find the enter button. I have scrolled down, nothing. If I click the link you posted in one of the replies I just get a blank screen.

        1. Brian Cohen says:

          That is bizarre, katina, as I just entered moments ago with no problems or issues.

          I even used the link from this article to enter.

          Perhaps try a different Internet browser or computer…?!?

    2. Mary says:

      $1100 for 2 tickets.
      You will have to pay income taxes of about $300.
      So you got 2 tickets for about $300.
      Good deal if you are flying far.

  2. FlyerDad says:

    I actually won! Thanks very much for posting about this.

    1. Brian Cohen says:

      Thank you for reading The Gate, FlyerDad.

      Congratulations to you and enjoy your trip!

  3. FlyerDad says:

    Ron: I got the same e-mail–I think the reason they say “potential” is because you need to submit the affidavit first in order to actually “win”.

    1. Brian Cohen says:

      I like your answer better than mine, FlyerDad. Thank you.

  4. Ron Biagini says:

    OK Bryan,
    Even though all this sounds like a legitimate promotion, I am always suspicious of potential scams since I simply do not win stuff; So, exactly, who are you and are you or are you not affiliated in any way with Alaska Airlines or “PrizeLogic”, the apparent promotion administrator. Plus your response starting with “MY GUESS” does not instill a bunch of confidence in you.

    So here’s another question assuming your positive verifiable responses—Is there an expiration date on the airline certificates and if so why is that date not mentioned in the contest rules or on the Affidavit of Eligibility. Liability & Publicity Release ?
    Thank You,

    1. Brian Cohen says:

      I am not sure what gives you the idea that I am in any way affiliated with Alaska Airlines or PrizeLogic, Ron Biagini — I am not — but all I am doing is relating news of a promotion to readers.

      On most airlines, certificates are typically valid for one year after they are issued.

      As for what and why Alaska Airlines and PrizeLogic do what they did with this promotion, I have no idea.

      Who am I? I am a frequent flier who has traveled the world and likes to assist readers to get the most out of travel…

      By the way, I have entered this sweepstakes twice thus far and have not yet won…

  5. Rosie says:

    There is no “sweepstakes tab” that I can find online.

  6. Rosie says:

    Where is the sweepstakes tab? It’s not visible on my laptop. The page link works, but no tab.

    1. Brian Cohen says:

      Scroll down and click the ENTER button, Rosie.

      Better yet, click here…

      …and good luck to you!

  7. Patty says:

    I just received an email that I won. It seem legit but I’m a little leary of providing the personal information required in the Affidavit though in case it is a scam.

    1. Brian Cohen says:

      I suppose that you could always contact Alaska Airlines or Virgin America to verify that the e-mail message is legitimate, Patty; but I hope you did win.

      1. Patty says:

        Thanks! The email is actually from PrizeLogic on behalf of Alaska Airlines, Inc. (I emailed them with a few questions and am awaiting a response) but the sweepstakes IS on one of the airlines websites soooo looking pretty good!!!!

        1. Brian Cohen says:

          Congratulations, Patty — and enjoy your trip!

  8. FlyerDad says:

    Just got my certificates. Good through November 30, 2017 for two unrestricted coach tickets anywhere Alaska and VA fly (except Cuba). You do have to call at least 4 weeks prior to travel.

    1. katina says:

      How can I enter. There is no enter button.

    2. Brian Cohen says:

      Congratulations to you, FlyerDad — and enjoy your trip to wherever you choose to travel!

    3. Patty says:

      I think I read they extended the expiration date for the tickets. Mine are good until the end of the year.

  9. cw says:

    I just got email today form prize logic? So this is legit & not a scam? Thanks in advance

    1. Patty says:

      It is legit. I received my coupon/vouchers in the mail not too long ago. Congrats!!

  10. BL says:

    I won too! for those ones who won, after you faxed them, how do you verify they receive it? I am going to fax them tomorrow but just wondering how do I know the fax went through and they didn’t miss it.


    1. Patty says:

      I just trusted my fax confirmation that it went. If I remember correctly, there is an email contact address or you can just respond to the email you received I suppose to confirm receipt. Congrats!

      1. Brian Cohen says:

        Congratulations to you, Patty — as well as to BL, cw and everyone else who won!

        I did not win; but I am thrilled that you and other did — and I hope that I was helpful.

        Enjoy your trip!

      2. BL says:

        Thanks Patty and Brian,
        I will try to email after I faxed them.
        This is awesome!

  11. Emily says:

    I got my winner email yesterday (1/18/17). I’m wondering if it’s real or if I should be careful since I’m getting it so much later than other people? Other winners seem to have gotten notified immediately.

    1. BL says:


      I got my email yesterday, checking the info form the email it seems legit. If you want to make sure you can check with Alaska Air or PrizeLogic (using their formal website contact info).
