We’re back with another “Say What?!” item found as we traversed the web on the hunt for deals. I literally cocked my head to the side, squinted my eyes with a confused look and thought, “Huh? Say what?” when I saw this next deal.
But first, let’s imagine. Imagine someone who travels via private jet complete with leather sets and a stocked wet bar. This is a person who doesn’t have time and space to even ride first class, since waiting in airports and waiting for baggage takes too much precious time. “I mean, hey, I’ve got a busy life of luxury to live. I don’t have time to travel with all the rest of you,” they might think.
Now, back to reality. Do you think that person you imagined would be on the hunt for a coupon code or a discount? I doubt it. Hence, this next deal perplexed me.
Last week at Rue La La you could get a discount private jet travel (no longer available, sorry). Spend just $7,700 on a $10,000 gift card for private jet travel. That saves you 23%. Please note, there is a limit of two per person since I’m sure there was a flood of customers beating down the door for this one.
I read The Millionaire Next Door and The Millionaire Mind. America’s millionaires are not frivolous. They are frugal. They are coupon-loving discount hounds. As such, I imagine they’d fly coach not via private jet.
Really, help me out. What’s your guess about who would buy chartered jet time from a discount shopping site?
