Twitter Savings

Everyone is getting on the Twitter-bus now. Celebrities, the Obama administration staff, anyone in the mainstream media. What some consumers might not know is that companies are taking notice. Recently, United Airlines ran a promotion where one could receive a 1,500 mile bonus, free, by registering at the United Airlines twitter site. I believe this promotion is over, but why not register with them anyway? According to a friend of mine, UAL was running something called Tweet Fares or Twares recently, offering discounts for booking flights within a certain time frame.

Expect other companies, not just airlines, to get the Twitter-bug.
