Update: I never saw it become available, so it is either a mistake (maybe goes live at a later time?) or it sold out in a second or less. Did anyone see it or was able to purchase?
Now it says “We’re all sold out! We’ll be back in stock on December 18th at 3PM EST.”
JetBlue also tweeted that apparently there were 200 available and sold out in seconds. “Wow… All 200
#GetPacking games sold out in seconds on @amazon. Stay tuned for more availability coming on 12/18/2017.”

I guess a few bots were able to grab a few of these games. It’s already for sale on eBay and biding is up to $300. A very poorly run promotion from Amazon and JetBlue.
Get Packing! is a new board game from JetBlue that pokes fun at the challenges of the holidays. This is a three- to six-player game that sure looks like fun but the most important part of it is the final prize. The winner of the game gets a real JetBlue flight certificate redeemable for one round-trip flight.
The game is being sold on Amazon for only $19.99, but is not live yet. It will become available today, December 12th at 12PM EST.
All travel must be booked and flown within January 2018 to December 2018, and travel is subject to availability and holiday blackout dates below. Aside from that, there are no price restrictions.

This is an incredible deal that should be worth a few hundred bucks at least. I’m not sure how many of these board games will be available at 12pm, but it will definitely sell out very quickly. Be ready at 12PM and hopefully you can grab one of them. Use a Discover card to earn 5% and maybe go through JetBlue portal to earn 3X TruBlue points, but that might slow you down.
Good luck! And let me know if you’re able to buy 1.
