After a challenging year to travel in 2020 (to say the least), 2021 is looking a lot different. Just one of more visible ways it’s different: the many companies doing vacation giveaways, from App in the Air gifting $5,000 in free flights to United Airlines giving free flights for a year to one lucky person.
Another one of the businesses doing a travel giveaway is Affirm, a company that offers loans for smaller purchases that you can pay back over time without opening a credit card. It promises a “flexible, transparent, and convenient way” to pay back those loans without any added fees. And after a year of pent-up FOMO and longing for a getaway, the company believes you deserve that dream vacation and wants to give you between $5,000 and $15,000 to take it.
