Biden’s obsession with vaccinating every American has spilled over into every industry.
Governors are giving away free college tuition and millions of dollars to vaccinated adults, and Biden is even offering a free round of beer.
And now this airline has jumped on the bandwagon and is promising free travel for an entire year to those who get vaccinated – but there’s a catch.
United Airlines recently launched their “Your Shot To Fly” sweepstakes in an attempt to encourage travelers to get vaccinated.
Trying to make getting poked seem fun, United writes: “When you get vaccinated against COVID-19, the world wins — and you could win a year of free flights to see the world!”
So how does the program work?
Well, United MileagePlus® members who are already vaccinated simply need to upload their vaccination card to their account by June 22, 2021.
Of course, this will automatically cause many Americans to opt-out of the program, as some (rightfully so) are not comfortable feeding personal health information into some massive database.
But for those who choose to play, United promises to randomly select 30 winners who will win roundtrip flights for two – any class of service, anywhere United flies!
But United is taking it even further and offering 5 grand prize winners the chance to receive ONE YEAR of free travel to anywhere they want in the world…
… and yep, they get to bring a travel companion too!
In reading the fine print, however, it looks like United caps the “free travel for a year” at 26 trips.
But STILL, 26 free flights, any class, anywhere in the world, with a guest!
United’s latest “Your Shot To Fly Program” seems on par with other businesses and politicians pulling out all the stops in attempt to twist the arms of hesitant Americans to get the vaccine.
You see, Biden has a goal of having 70-percent of Americans fully vaccinated by July… and he’s definitely putting pressure on businesses and states to comply.
In fact, some of Biden’s tactics are so far-fetched – you can’t even believe they’re real…
… but they are.
Like when the President of the United States of America is actually promising FREE BEER for those 21 and up if 70-percent of Americans have gotten at least their first COVID-19 shot by July.
“The White House’s new partnership with Anheuser-Busch offering free beers if the country reaches its goal of getting 70% of adults at least one Covid-19 vaccine shot by July 4 — almost Prohibition in reverse — is more than a gimmick…
“Get a shot and have a beer. Free beer for everyone 21 years or over to celebrate the independence from the virus,” he (Biden) said.”
Wow. Just wow!
Meanwhile in Ohio, Governor Mike DeWine is offering a lottery of $1 million dollars or free college tuition to those who have been vaccinated (10 winners selected at random over 5 weeks).
Of course, Biden hopes his vaccine campaign will persuade those who are hesitant to just finally break down and get the shot.
Will it cause some to cave?
Will it cause everyone?
Not a chance.
For those who are against the shot, and stand on principle, bribes won’t work.
But for those of you who already got it – check out the incentives in your own state and see what they are offering.
Want free travel?
If you’re ok with uploading your vaccine card to United – give it a “shot” and take advantage of the free stuff they’re throwing your way!
