WILMINGTON, D.E.– January 17, 2023 – Today, on National Lose the Jet Lag Day, the United Family of Cards from Chase announced that it has teamed up with Timeshifter, the world’s most advanced circadian technology platform, to launch the “Jet Set & Reset” pledge and Sweepstakes* designed to help travelers understand and tackle the underlying cause of jet lag - a nemesis to great travel.
Exclusive to United MileagePlus® members, those who take the “Jet Set & Reset” pledge to take on jet lag in 2023 will be entered into a Sweepstakes for a chance to win a prize from three potential prize categories that help turn those pledges into action:
- One (1) winner will receive a year-long subscription to the Timeshifter jet lag app and 1 million United MileagePlus miles, the ultimate package for more and better travel experiences.
- Eight (8) people will receive a year-long subscription to the Timeshifter jet lag app and 500K United MileagePlus miles.
- 500 pledge takers will win a year-long subscription to the Timeshifter jet lag app, which provides highly personalized plans for managing jet lag.
“The United Family of Cards from Chase brings more and better travel to the world through card rewards and benefits, and the turn of the new year is the perfect time to commit to getting the most out of travel,” said Laurinda Rainey, General Manager of United Co-Brand Cards at Chase. “We are excited to launch this Sweepstakes on National Lose the Jet Lag Day to raise awareness of the impact jet lag has on travel.”
According to Timeshifter, jet lag causes significant human and financial costs – from poor concentration and reduced productivity to less enjoyment and weakened immune function. Timeshifter debunks common jet lag myths and replaces them with real science, allowing travelers to control circadian rhythms by taking small actions at specific times to ensure they arrive at their best.
“When I was an astronaut, we learned how to shift our circadian rhythms to prepare for rocket launches and spacewalks. Because our circadian clock regulates our sleep, alertness and almost all other biological systems in our body, it was key to our safety, performance and health,” said Mike Massimino, former NASA Astronaut and Timeshifter Advisor. “It’s gratifying to see circadian science finally being applied outside of NASA to equip travelers to tackle jet lag, and I applaud Chase and United for shining a light on jet lag health with their ‘Jet Set & Reset’ campaign.”
The Timeshifter jet lag app was developed with world-renowned scientists, led by Associate Professor at Harvard Medical School and Timeshifter’s Chief Scientist, Dr. Steven W. Lockley, based on the latest research in sleep and circadian neuroscience. The app provides users with highly personalized jet lag plans based on their normal sleep pattern, chronotype, itinerary and personal preferences.
“We want United flyers to enjoy their travel experiences on and off the plane, and our United Family of Cards from Chase help people maximize their travel,” said Marketing & Loyalty VP and MileagePlus President, Luc Bondar. “We’re excited to kick off the new year with an opportunity for travelers to take on jet lag and commit to getting the most out of their travel in 2023. With our expanded network reach this year, travelers have more access to their favorite destinations and new places they have yet to visit.”
