I’m off to fetch some MegaDo swag for all of you! Its a giveaway!

Its here, tonight. I’m off to my 28,600 miles, ten days, nine airports, meet three airlines and make 171 new friends trip and it is called the oneworld MegaDo. I’ve been chronicling my preparation for the MegaDo over the past 10 weeks, and you all could read it here. It should be exciting, and I’ll learn a lot of ways to travel without sleep and jetlag hopefully!

We, the MegaDoers, are obviously not going for anything else but the hunt for the perfect swag. Randy Petersen gave a little teaser of what was coming our way on the MegaDo website which looked like this:

oneworld Lanyards

 

The OWMD T-Shirt

This is only a peep of what is coming. There is all the goodies from the airlines and hotels that he hasn’t shared with us yet, but they will be there, we are told, and I’ll tell you when I know! And all this could be yours! Here is how…

I’m opening a giveaway from the time I am gone (now!) to the time I am back to my home (Monday, 30th January 2012, 11 PM IST/1130 AM CET) where you have the chance to win a bag full of swag from the inaugural oneworld MegaDo. You know how to get it right? Hop on to the comments section, and give me 4 simple answers:

a) Which airline would you like to see join oneworld next?

b) Where am I based out of?

c) Where all is the charter plane of the oneworld MegaDo going in January 2012?

d) White or Pink? (details below!)

Once I am back to base, I’ll randomly select the winner using random.org, and put it out for you on 1st February 2012. I’ll contact the winner using his/her email address and take it forward from there. And if you’re not the winner, I still have something more for you. I am purchasing an American Airlines/AAdvantage – MilePoint T-shirts (white or pink) which will benefit the official charity of the event.

One of you get this t-shirt each! I’m hoping I’ll have the flexibility to select the size and color later as per the winner’s choice.

I do reserve the right to add more prizes as we go along if I find something interesting, and add more winners to the basket. So, do watch out for updates. More than one entry is allowed, but don’t bring them on in a row! Since the comments are moderated, do not worry if yours dont show up in the first go. I’ll moderate them as frequently as possible!

All the best, and now you can wish me that all my upgrades clear! 😀
