Win a Seat on StarMegaDo5!

Star MegaDo is a chartered United flight from Toronto to Tucson, Arizona and finally to San Francisco.

At  Star MegaDo5 you can meet other miles and points fanatics on the longest MegaDo flight ever – over 1,800 miles!

You also get to visit and tour the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center (AMARC) or The Boneyard  (a storage facility for aircraft and military equipment) and you’ll hang out with A10 Thunderbolt fighter jet pilots.

And that’s just a few of the many activities planned for the fun-filled 4 days!

Your seat includes:

  • Private MegaDO charter flights with free food and drinks
  • All meals included
  • Marriott Platinum status valid through February 2015
  • ~5,000 miles on United (or if you chose, Air Canada)
  • Lots of giveaway goodies or swag

You can learn read all the bonus offers including a special edition Rimowa carry on bag on the official MegaDo website.

Like all Mega DOs you’ll have a lot of time to socialize both on and off the plane and play onboard games like lighting up all the flight attendant call buttons on a flight.

Star Mega Do 3 -16

Flight Attendant Call Buttons Lit Up!

There are also tours of a Rimowa factory, a meeting with Air Canada executives, and lots more.

The Mega Do is October 22, 2013 to October 25, 2013.

You can find more information on this MilePoint thread.  Million Mile Secrets is helping sponsor the event, but I won’t be able to attend, though I did attend StarMegaDo 3.

And as a sponsor, I’d like to give away one coach seat to one lucky Million Mile Secrets winner!

If you don’t win, there are still a few tickets for sale.

  • Coach: $999
  • Economy Plus: $1,299
  • Tommy Class: (middle seat blocked) $1,799
  • Tommy Class Emergency Exit (middle seat blocked) $1,999
  • First Class: $2,799 (sold out)

When you add in the 5,000 miles, chartered flights, meals, private tours and once in a lifetime experiences, the value of the Star MegaDo5 is worth more than $999.

Do note that you have to pay ~$665 for stays at the Marriott and Ritz Carlton from October 22 through October 25, 2013, in addition to paying for flights to get to Toronto (where the event begins) and back home from San Francisco where the event ends.

I’ll throw in a $500 Visa gift card to help cover your expenses.  But you will stay have to pay a bit out of pocket.

How to Enter:

Please leave ONE comment telling me why you want to go on StarMegaDo5.

I’ll pick 1 commenter who wins a seat on the StarMegaDo5 after the drawing closes at 10:00 pm Central Time on Saturday, September 14 (today).

Good luck!

Fine Print:  The maximum value of this giveaway is $999.  I make all the decisions regarding the giveaway and there is no appeal.

  20. I’m tired of getting strange and judgmental looks from people when I tell them how I travel for virtually free. I’m done with waisting my breath trying to convince friends and family to apply for credit cards. For my own sanity, I’ve decided I should only associate with other mile hoarding types. Mega Do would be a great opportunity to start this transition. Maybe I will even meet Mr. Wright. (pun intended)
