Contest Watch: Blockbuster Movie Means Blockbuster Giveaways
In this super-sized edition of T+L Contest Watch, we’ve scoured the globe to find mega-awesome 3-D Imax-scale sweepstakes. Hurry, these are leaving theaters soon.
“Clash of the Titans Sweepstakes,” Greek Islands (ends April 19th)
In celebration of the new 3-D movie, Clash of the Titans, Fandango, Variety Cruises, Warner Brothers, and Greek National Tourism have teamed up to give away a 7-night/8-day Greek Island cruise. Visit www.discovergreecenow.com to enter—seems simple but those who chose to receive more direct-to-consumer mail get more entries into the grand prize drawing (just keep that in mind). Losers can take comfort in co-stars Liam Neeson and Ralph Fines in 3-D.
“Drive it Home,” Edinburgh, Scotland (ends April 30th)
Free the week of July 12th, 2010? Marginally interested in golf? Well we have the sweepstakes for you: visit www.driveithome2010.com to enter for the chance to win a golf vacation for two to see the British Open at St. Andrews. Winner receives roundtrip airfare, 4-nights hotel, 2 tickets to the tournament, car rental, and a round of golf at the Old Course. Winners who do not have a companion should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Follow & Win,” Riviera Maya, Mexico (ends May 3)
The adults-only all-inclusive resort (left) has launched a Twitter sweepstakes to give away a 3-night getaway for two. Visit twitter.com/valentinmaya to follow the hotel. As an added bonus, the account retweets recent followers—so you could beef up your own twitterati while you’re at it.
“Tweet to Win,” Sedona, AZ (ends May 3)
I may dismiss up Mother’s Day as a made up holiday (this goes for you too Father’s Day, Valentine’s, and National Cupcake Day), but why not win something in “honor” of it. World’s Best and T+L 500 winner, Enchantment Resort is giving away a 2-night Mother’s Day Package (spa treatments, resort credit, and daily activities). Just tweet @EnchantmentAZ saying why your mother is the best—so I suppose you have to bring her along if you win, but will they check IDs?
“Win a Trip to BC,” British Columbia, Canada (ends May 31)
Fresh off their Olympic boon, British Columbia’s Tourism Board is offering a 7-day trip to Vancouver and Whistler complete with three excursions (ziplining, kayaking, golfing among others) valued at over $7,750. To enter, simply visit www.winabctrip.com.
