To mange your high expectations up front, my contest is a poor man’s version of a Star MegaDO4 giveaway.
Star Mega DO4 is the fourth iteration of the Star Mega Do, which is billed as a “once-in-a-lifetime” experience where you can fly on a plane with other frequent fliers and mile junkies, hob-nob with airline and hotel executives including an update from United CEO Jeff Smisek!
I was on Star Mega Do 3 last year and had a great time, but won’t be able to attend this year.
Here’s the complete schedule of Star Mega DO4.
Unlike other contests where you can win a paid seat on the domestic portion of the Star Mega DO4, my contest is a bit more no-frills. As part of my sponsorship with Star Mega Do4, I have one coach seat reserved on the domestic portion of the trip.
However, you still have to PAY $999 to the organizers of Star Mega Do 4 for the coach seat if you win my contest. You also have to pay ~$600 for stays at the Hyatt from November 13 through November 17, 2012, in addition to paying for flights to get to San Fransisco (where the event begins) and back home from Chicago where the event ends.
I’ll throw in a $500 Visa gift card to help cover your expenses. So my contest is for an option to purchase a seat to a sold-out event and a $500 gift card.
“Some Contest.” you say!
Well, tickets to Star Mega Do4 sold out in less than 20 minutes, and there are lots of folks who wanted to buy tickets, but weren’t able to. Until now..
Leave ONE comment on this post telling me what most frustrates you about collecting miles and points.
I’ll draw a random winner after 11:59 pm CST on Sunday, October 14, 2012 when the contest closes.
To ensure that only folks who want to buy a ticket to StarMegaDO 4 take part in the contest, I won’t send you the $500 gift card until you pay for your seat on the Star Mega Do 4 charter.
You have to pay for the seat on the Star Mega DO4 charter within 48 hours of receiving an email from me. If not, we’ll move on to another random winner.
