Buy a doughnut on Thursday to get a free $200 voucher to fly Spirit Airlines


Spirit Airlines is offering customers a sweet deal this week.

On Thursday, Spirit will give away free $200 airfare vouchers to customers at an Ohio doughnut shop.

The first 91 customers at Buckeye Donuts in 1998 N. High St. in Columbus on Thursday will receive the voucher when they purchase a special doughnut, reports The Columbus Dispatch. The doughnuts will be decorated to celebrate Spirit Airlines launching service in Columbus to seven cities.

The voucher giveaway will start at 7 a.m. Spirit chose to offer 91 vouchers since 91 is a “baker’s dozen” for each of the seven locations the airliner will soon begin flying to out of Columbus.

For people who don’t make it to the doughnut shop, Spirit is also running a contest in February for two round-trip tickets to any of the destinations out of Columbus at the website SpiritSweetDeals.com.

In November, Spirit announced it would begin offering a new nonstop service from John Glenn Columbus International Airport to Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Tampa and Fort Myers on Feb. 15.

Spirit does not offer flights to or from Dayton International Airport or the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. Spirit operates at more than 450 daily flights to 60 destinations in the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean.
