By iGo Global Staff · May 8, 2017

NINETYSIX3: An Unlimited Value

By iGo Global Staff · November 1, 2016

The standard streaming subscription for Netflix costs $9.99 per month and there are over 47 million Netflix subscribers in the USofA alone. What a phenomenon. I get it. I mean, there are always Stranger Things you could be spending your money on, right? Netflix is a good investment when you consider all the ways you can use it. You can binge watch it with Friends, or you can get Lost in a show all alone. Streaming Netflix on your smart phone means you can take your favorite shows outdoors. You could watch a comedy on benches in city Parks, And…

The Official Holiday of iGosia

By iGo Global Staff · October 29, 2015

Fact: iGosians love a good holiday. Fiction: iGosian Airlines employees treat every day like a holiday. (No really, it’s fiction. It only seems like it is true.) Fact: iGosians also love mascots. Fiction: All iGosia mascots eat cucumbers and tomatoes. (The octopus can’t do it. #textureissues) Put these two facts together and you have yourself a one-of-a-kind celebration. The good people of iGosia would like to invite you to join us as we celebrate our national holiday, The Day of the Mascot.

Let the Jimmy Transformation Begin

By iGo Global Staff · May 22, 2015

Being a Jimmy changes a person. This is an extremely undocumented fact. And the Jimmy metamorphosis begins almost immediately. Whether a new Jimmy is an iGo repeat offender (veteran of many trips) or brand new to the iGo culture, transformation commences soon after Jimmy enters the not-so-hallowed halls of the World Wide Headquarters. The catalyst of change seems to center on Jimmy’s newly acquired royal status. After all, Jimmy is annually immortalized (as much as one can be immortalized for one summer) when we place their image on the iGosian currency. In one sense you could call Jimmy the Prince and…

By iGo Global Staff · April 14, 2015

And when I say spending, I want you to take that word literally. You are the steward of this gift we call summer break. God has entrusted you with some time away from the routine for a couple of months. So how will you spend it? You have a chance to invest this commodity we call time, but you also have a chance to waste it. What will…
