Enter the BlackboardEats “Austin City Limits Music Festival” sweepstakes by August 11 for a chance to win the grand prize: a trip for two to the Austin City Limits Festival, including air, three hotel nights, three lunches, and festival passes.
To participate, provide your email address and zip code on the sweepstakes landing page and click the “Submit” button. Time required to enter: less than 15 seconds.
Note: Many online sweepstakes are run in order to build up subscriber lists to the sponsors’ marketing publications. Of course, it’s easy enough to opt out of the marketing communications after entering, and most do. This sweepstakes entails a particularly heavy commitment: “By clicking ‘Enter to Win’ I agree to subscribe to the free e-newsletters from BlackboardEats, become a member of venteprivee.com and to receive offers and promotions about products and services that may be of interest to me from American Express Publishing, as well as the weekly Travel Tips enewsletter from Food & Wine.” That’s a lot of inbox clutter in exchange for a minute chance of winning a free trip.
