False claim circulates about Allegiant Air offering 2 free tickets

Contrary to a false claim on a phony website, Allegiant Air is not offering two free tickets in exchange for completing a survey.

"Congratulations! ! You have been selected to take part in our short survey to get 2 Free Allegiant Air Tickets! We only have 468 Tickets remaining so hurry up!" claimed a website with the URL allegiant.com.flywithallegiant.win/Nn57col.

The alleged number of tickets left randomly fluctuates every time the web page is refreshed — sometimes 149 tickets remain, at other times the number goes up to 571, or 596, or drops to 322.

Regardless of the number, the overall claim is not true.

"This link is not a valid promotion," Allegiant spokeswoman Krysta Levy told PunditFact. "We are working with our legal team to take appropriate action."

Typically, if a promotion is sponsored by Allegiant, it will appear on the airline’s main website, www.allegiant.com, or appear on its verified social media channels, Levy said.

We’ve debunked similar posts claiming to offer two free tickets to fly on Southwest Airlines and on Delta Air Lines after the completion of surveys. They were both scams. There’s also no truth to another post going around claiming "Walmart rewards everyone with $75 coupon to celebrate its 125th Anniversary," in exchange for taking a three-question survey.

A website’s promise of two free tickets on Allegiant after taking a survey isn’t based on reality. We rate it Pants on Fire!
