Jetsmarter question

Worth it? - http://thepointsguy.com/2016/10/founderscard-jetsmarter-promotion-fly-free-for-three-months/
Does the founders card actually offer any other perks that could make it worth $400 a year?

Regardless of other perks, $400 bucks for 3 months unlimited empty legs sounds pretty good.

If you have need for them, otherwise your just getting "good value" out of something you weren't going to pay for anyways.

This can be very worthwhile if you really take advantage and do it a few times. Im seriously debating it. P

Only top tier members get helicopters for free, for other members it's available for an add on price.

It's a 3 month membership of the lowest tier, which is why it includes deals only and not the shuttle.
