Wyndham Contest – Why I Deserve a Summer Vacation

Submit a photo with a description of why you deserve a summer vacation to Wyndham’s ‘Why I deserve a summer vacation’ contest running May 19 to June 19, 2011 for a chance to win 175,000 points, $7,000 cash and a rental car week. You may have 5 entries in the contest period. There are all kinds of legal requirements around the photo, so be sure to read the terms of the contest.

Wyndham ‘Why I deserve a summer vacation’ Grand Prize:

  • 175,000 Wyndham Rewards points
  • Rental car for 8 days.
  • $7,000 bank gift card.

Currently, on May 31, there are only 139 entries. Odds are rather good.

Seven judges will select the seven finalists and then the general public selects the Grand Prize winner of the seven finalists during voting from June 23-29, 2011.

On a side note: I thought I was going to be one of the judges of this contest. I missed the Wyndham meeting. Turns out I was traipsing around Yosemite and Kings Canyon and out of e-touch and then conducting end-of-year standardized testing on first graders when I could have been meeting with Wyndham representatives about the summer contest two weeks ago. My loss.

Anyway, I am sure consumers are in good hands with Tim Winship, Rudy Maxa, and Grant Martin and Canadian Christiane Levesque rounding out the male side of judging. Kim Orlando of travelingmom.com is a blogger representative.

Hey Wyndham, can I still have the points?

  1. oh gosh, why me on a summer vaction? I have a 3 yr old grandson that I watch quite frequently! Although luckily my husband hasn’t lost his job like many have, he has got cut back to 40hrs. This has put a major damper on our summer festivities by far – we are lucky to have enough money to put gas in our beastgasguzzling chevy trailblazer by the end of the week. We are scraping on groceries and necessaties. I have put off going to my foot specialist because my husband’s employer changed health plans this year. It cost us $50 each visit for a specailist – I have had four surgeries on my left foot, which has caused nerve damage. I still keep going though – after all, I am only going to 42 on June 25th! I go to the St Louis Zoo and Forest Park Muny for Broadway shows (free seats of course!) – We do things that cost next to nothing or free! I think I deserve to pampered considering I am not a materialistic person and have for many years cheated myself, as well as my three children out of a great family vacation (although they have never complained to me about the local attractions!)
