JetBlue's Lion King on Broadway party for Mosaic members

As I mentioned earlier, JetBlue has a new-to-us perk for it's Mosaic elites with their co-branded Mastercard – VIP tickets to the Lion King on Broadway. As a properly jaded New Yorker I'll admit I was a bit dubious about what "VIP" meant, but we had Saturday afternoon open and figured we'd check it out. Given my age and the fact that I don't have children, I'd actually never seen the Lion King before. A friend who works on Broadway told me that the amazing puppetry and costumes  made it definitely worth checking out.

We booked our date online and paid the $50 deposit (which is refunded to you as a Mastercard gift card at the show). When we arrived at the theater, there was a separate entrance for JetBlue ticket-holders which let us bypass all of the lines. The welcome envelope included a generous stack of drink tickets.

Our seats were on the main floor, maybe a dozen rows from the stage. The VIP tickets included a Q&A with some of the cast members after the show, and a beach bag full of goodies to take home: a Lion King blanket, a leather passport holder and luggage tag, autographed programs, and one of those wireless keychains that help you find your keys.

The whole experience was perfectly executed and fun. And, y'know, yay for an elite benefit we can actually use and enjoy!
