Ongoing travel contests for your benefit!

I thought I’d pop by to give all my readers a quick reminder on the contests that are underway right now courtesy of the various travel services, which could help you get yourself some privileges or free nights in case you choose to participate.

a) IHG Memorable Weekends contest: Like I mentioned in my post last week, Intercontinental Hotels Group is running a fantastic contest for its patrons in India, Middle-East Asia and Africa, where they are giving away free weekend packages for a family and 25 free nights at Holiday Inn and InterContinental properties in the regions. You could use the packages anytime up to December 31, 2012. As of now, only 50 entries are being voted upon at the Holiday Inn page. So, it could be a nice free vacation your way (with Breakfast and Dinner included!). Check here for more details. Contest open till March 15, 2012.

b) Star Alliance ‘Picture your Upgrade’ contest: The contest has now entered theĀ 4th week. Like I posted a couple of weeks ago, Star Alliance is conducting a contest for the frequent travellers, where using a mobile app which you download on your phone, you complete a particular task assigned to you each week. Each task runs for a fortnight, and would be as basic as clicking 3 different departure boards. Each task has a grand prize ranging from MontBlanc bags to concierge services for a year. And yes, the grand prizes are Round The World tickets in Business Class on Star Alliance for 2, and a Gold Membership for 1 participant from each program. You can run for the grand prize even by completing only one task. So, get cracking. More details here!
