I don’t know why I’m telling you this.
Perhaps because I am a really, really good person who is able to put my own selfish desires aside for your best interest.
Or maybe I’m hoping that you’ll reward me in the future by, maybe, offering to take me to Hawaii with you, for example.
I’m going with the idea that I am a really good person who you would gladly reward with a trip to Hawaii even if you don’t know me. Because in my head, that makes total sense.
Anyway – let’s talk about getting you (and a friend) a free trip to Hawaii.
Of all the travel related internet happenings going on right now, the one I am most excited about is Marriott’s “Tweet Yourself To Hawaii” Sweepstakes. (Now, before you click that link, let me warn you that this website has autoplay sound. Which I loathe. But keep your eye on the prize!)
And that prize is…
A vacation for two to Hawaii from Marriott!
Each week, Marriot Hawaii is giving away three island vacations. The vacation packages include:
- Roundtrip airfare for two to Hawaii on Hawaiian Airlines from any of its ten U.S. West Coast gateway cities – Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, Oakland, San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles and San Diego
- A five-night stay at one of the following Marriott resorts in Hawaii: JW Marriott Ihilani Resort & Spa, Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, Kauai Marriott Resort & Beach Club, Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa or Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa
- Rental car, courtesy of Hertz
- Selected island activities and attractions
(In order to take advantage of this prize, you’re going to have to get yourself – and a friend - to and from one of the ten U.S. West coast gateway cities.)
All you have to do to enter is go to the contest web site and login to send a tweet about the contest. A tweet is something you do on Twitter. Twitter is some place where you should be following me. You can get additional entries by submitting an email entry and connecting to your Facebook account.
The contest runs from the week of August 24th through October 23rd, and you can enter again each week. If you win, you must take your vacation by December 20, 2009. Oh, the burden!
Go to the Marriott Hawaii Tweet Sweepstakes website to enter.
And remember who loved you enough to tell you about it.
