Another travel tip contest worth entering


So you didn’t win the trip to Australia’s Gold Coast last month? No worries. There’s always another contest opportunity out there. I happened to read about a contest being sponsored by Condé Nast and Competitours this month. The prize? Try 250,000 frequent flyer points on for size (no, I don’t know what program, but even in Delta SkyMiles you can get something with that many miles). What does it take to win? Just tell a story.

Just share your best frequent-flier success story — a true-life example of how you engineered a free ticket, upgrade, or other miles- or points-related victory against the odds. Tell us, in 200 words or less, what you got, how you got it, and the lesson that the rest of us can learn from it. The person with the best frequent-flier triumph and tip wins.

Enter as often as you want. I’ve got a couple stories I’ll be adding in to their collection in the coming days. And I’m sure I won’t have any trouble finding a use for the points should I win.

And while you’re at it, check out what Competitours offers. It is a completely different type of trip offering; you’re very own Amazing Race without the crazy of a TV crew following you around, but with all the fun of competition and not knowing where you’re going or what you’ll be doing tomorrow.
