Cost: Varies.

Though they’re not at all publicized, virtually each major alliance and their respective airlines offer unlimited flight passes for each continent. To be eligible, you need to fly to that region from somewhere outside the region, using the same airline alliance. These passes can generally only be booked and quoted over the phone – but they can save a fortune, while also earning miles. Here’s SkyTeam, OneWorld and Star Alliance too.

British Airways flight pass allows frequent travelers to hedge their costs. The pass does not allow travelers to mix and match cities, but rather to lock in a set number of flights on any route for a set price. Prices start £45 one way, for flights between London and European destinations. Restrictions may make this unfriendly for some, but for others it could be a great move. Full details.

Cost: Roughly $5.60 per flight, for unlimited flights all year.

The Southwest Companion Pass is an incredible pick up for travel with a companion. Covering the U.S. and Hawaii, the pass allows a second person to “fly free” all year, even when the primary person is using points. The second person just pays the taxes of roughly $5.60. It’s possible to earn the pass just with credit card spending – making this very lucrative- even if you don’t fly! Yet…

As for the JetBlue contest, you have a far better chance of being struck by lightning, eaten by a shark or winning the lottery – but go for it.
