FoundersCard is one of the most popular membership-based cards out there, offering perks ranging from elite status and free hotel stays to discounts at clothing stores. Thanks to a recent promotion with JetSmarter, all FoundersCard members (existing and new) will receive three months of complimentary access to JetDeals, which lists the private jet company’s last-minute seat availability. If, for instance, you need to fly from New York to Boston at the last minute, you can now use your FoundersCard membership to search JetDeals and fly for free on one of JetSmarter’s private jets.
In addition to the three free months of JetDeals access, FoundersCard members who purchase a Smart or Sophisticated membership with JetSmarter will automatically earn $2,000 worth of flight credits. Both JetSmarter deals are available now through June 30, 2017. FoundersCard members can activate their three months of JetDeals access through the members-only site but must do so by the end of March in order to take advantage of the full three-month membership. Free seats are first-come, first-serve and are subject to availability.
Overall, these are extremely valuable perks for FoundersCard members, especially since JetSmarter’s memberships cost $15,000 to begin with — there’s a $10,000 annual membership fee, plus the $5,000 initiation fee — so you could end up getting a tremendous value from this promotion if you prefer to fly private.
FoundersCard normally has an annual membership fee of $595 and a $95 initiation fee, but just for being a TPG reader, you’ll have access to a discounted rate of $395 per year and have the $95 initiation fee waived. If you’ve been thinking about signing up to become a member, now’s a great time to do so since you can see what it’s like to fly in a private jet — for free.
