Frequent flyer programs and travel sweepstakes have something in common: Both feature free travel. That’s why I profile the occasional sweepstakes alongside the frequent flyer bonuses.
Contests, on the other hand, are just that: competitions, where the prizes go to those who have outperformed others. In other words, they require work, which takes the &quot;free&quot; out of free travel.
This week, instead of a sweepstakes, I’m covering Wyndham Hotels’ &quot;My Horrible Holiday Gift&quot; contest, because what it lacks in &quot;free&quot; it more than makes up for in &quot;fun.&quot; And because the prize is worth working for.
Love That … What Is it Exacly?
Enter Wyndham’s &quot;My Horrible Holiday Gift&quot; contest by January 10, 2012, by submitting a photo of the worst holiday gift you’ve ever received.
Photos must be in digital form (.jpg, .jpeg, .gif, or .png), no larger than 10 MB.
The grand prize: 2 million Wyndham Rewards points. Four runners-up will each receive 25,000 Rewards points.
After the contest ends, the sponsor will choose five finalists, and the grand prize winner will be determined by a vote by Wyndham Rewards members.
Even if you don’t plan to enter, it’s worth having a look at some of the entries already posted on the contest landing page. Funny stuff!
