The deal
In addition to offering its customers free in-flight Wi-Fi throughout the month of August,  AirTran just rolled out free $25 e-certificates on flights to and from Florida. Amazingly, it appears that there are no strings attached with this one  — you simply enter your e-mail address and they will send you the voucher.

This offer is one per e-mail, which allows you to double your savings by simply entering a second e-mail address — and lets face it, who doesn’t have more than one e-mail account these days? Simply use the credits to book two one-way flights and voila! You now have 50 big ones back in your wallet.

The e-certificate can be used for tickets purchased by October 31, for travel valid through December 18. A number of AirTran passengers have already reported they’ve had success using the e-credit on flights to airports outside of Florida, so it’s worth a try. Keep in mind that AirTran does charge to check baggage and unfortunately the e-credit doesn’t apply to those pesky fees.

The dollars
Taxes and fees are additional.

The catch
Although the e-credit is valid through December, the free Wi-Fi offer is only through August.
