For those of you who have purchased a Chromebook in recent months, don’t forget that you have 12 free vouchers to use on GoGo Inflight while you travel domestically here in the United States. The vouchers work on any airline and aircraft that is equipped with GoGo services but you have to make sure that you have claimed them to get them. As a frequent traveler, I utilize GoGo almost every flight I’m on and while the service isn’t exactly outstanding from a speed perspective, it does keep you connected for things like email, web surfing and the like.
To make sure you have these vouchers, go to the Chromebook Goodies site at https://www.google.com/chrome/devices/goodies.html. Then scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see the section for GoGo and a button to bookmark the page. Once you are on a flight, you will need to log into the service from your Chromebook – it will not work from your Android phone, tablet or a PC or Mac. You will be prompted to confirm a passphrase and you will be online. It’s a simple as that and the page will tell you how many of these vouchers you have remaining.
Chromebook Users Have A Huge Value in GoGo Vouchers
To put it mildly, the GoGo service can be really expensive so these vouchers are a huge value to Chromebook users.
Most flights will be anywhere from $9.99 to $19.99 depending on the length of the flight. But I took a flight from New York to Los Angeles a few weeks ago and the service would have been an eye water $49.99 for that 6 1/2 hour flight. As I had my Chromebook for that flight, I simply used one of my vouchers, saving me the money.
The vouchers do have a life expectancy and that is 12 months after you purchased your Chromebook or the end of this year, whichever is the latter.
Even if you are not interested in the GoGo vouchers, be sure to check out the Goodies page. There is a promotion to get you free movies at the Google Play Movie & TV store as well as a 3 month trial to Google Play Music Unlimited amongst other benefits.
