Grand prize is six nights ocean view room at a Choice Privileges hotel in Hawaii. The actual hotel is undisclosed, sort of like a Priceline thing I guess. There are five Ascend Collection hotels at Waikiki: Ala Moana, Outrigger Luana Waikiki, Ohana Waikiki Melia, Ohana Waikiki West and Ohana East. Hopefully Choice Privileges gives the sweepstakes winner some choice in hotel, although the rules say hotel choice is up to Choice. There are another five Ascend Collection Hotels on Maui, three Ascend Collection hotels on Hawaii and one Ascend Collection hotel on Kauai.
This sweepstakes appears to be another new member enrollment marketing strategy, yet open to all Choice Privileges members. Entering sweepstakes will automatically enroll you in Choice Privileges if you are not already a member.
- Sweepstakes is limited to residents of 50 U.S. and D.C.
- Sweepstakes begins October 20 and ends December 15, 2010. You may enter sweepstakes once per day. Drawing will be about January 3, 2011.
- Grand Prize is six hotel nights in Hawaii ($1,800 value) + $2,000 credit for airfare + private hula lesson for two ($150) and two grass skirts ($50).
One of the other fine print rules for the Hawaii Sweepstakes is publicity. Something you may want to consider as a potential winner:
8. Publicity: Except where prohibited, participation in the Sweepstakes constitutes winner’s consent to Sponsor’s and its agents’ use of winner’s name, likeness, photograph, voice, opinions and/or hometown and state for promotional purposes in any media, worldwide, without further payment or consideration.
Is Choice Privileges really sure they want my opinions?
