The middle seat can be a dreaded location for fliers, which is exactly why Stella Artois wants to reward travelers flying on the middle seat this holiday season with a selection of prizes.

Starting Dec. 3 through Dec. 21, Stella Artois will be awarding travelers who share their travel woes in the middle seat a slew of freebies that range from hundreds in flight credits to free Lyft rides and memberships to speed through airport security as part of the Stella Artois Holiday Travel Contest.

The prizes passengers can receive include $500 in credit via either a pre-paid debit card or to the winner’s PayPal account to be used towards seat upgrades on any domestic and international flights. The credit is available for use on any airline and will be awarded to 60 winners.

A total of 28 winners will also get $500 credits to use either with Ticketmaster or Stubhub, while 42 folks will receive up to $50 in Lyft credits and 28 travelers will receive a free yearly membership to Clear airport security.

Clear allows travelers to skip airport security lanes and ID checks through fingerprint and iris scanning technology, and is also available for use at select sports arenas throughout the U.S.

Travelers who wish to enter simply need to snap a photo of their middle seat travel woes and post it to one of Stella Artois’ social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with @StellaArtois and the hashtags #StellaUpgrade and #Contest, between now and Dec. 21 to be eligible for the prizes.

Stella will be awarding winners on a daily basis, with participants required to be a resident of the U.S. and at least 21 years of age to apply. Participants will also need to like Stella Artois’ social media pages (Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter) for their entry to apply.
