Sweepstakes + Contests
Next trip to add to your bucket list for 2014? An adventure to one of Australia’s top destinations.
Tourism Australia and Air New Zealand are offering vistors special fares for an Australian voyage when they visit Go Mighty’s #GoAustralia site.
Register for a “seat” on an Air New Zealand plane and once 332 people register (the number it takes to fill a Boeing 777-300 aircraft), a special discount will be triggered so that each participant will receive a unique coupon code.
The largest ancient Egyptian Sphinx in the Western Hemisphere has lived in the Penn Museum for 100 years. After welcoming visitors for a century, he’s in need of a vacation.
To celebrate its 100th anniversary in Philadelphia this October, the Penn Museum wants you to take a “portable Sphinx” with you to a favorite spot or destination and snap a photo with you in it.
Download and print out the Portable Sphinx here. Take him to other museums, historic locations, sports games, or on your next weekend getaway.
When you share your photo, add a caption, and you could win a private tour of the Penn Museum’s Egypitan Galleries, a one-year membership to the museum, and more.
Are you more of the Maui-type? Or maybe you’re a Kauai?
Each Hawaiian island is unique when it comes to style, experience, culture, and personality—not unlike the individual travelers that visit them.
Hawaiian Airlines and the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau want to help you find the island that “represents” you. You can win 140,000 Hawaiian Miles when you enter the Find Your Island Sweepstakes on Facebook by October 9.
Take the quiz, and you could be visiting “your” island soon. Find out more here.
