Days Inn Honor a Hero Contest for $1,000 and six-night hotel stay

As we approach Veteran’s Day in the USA and Remembrance Day in Canada on November 11, this is seasonally a time when the hotel industry runs promotions for active and retired military members.

Wyndham Rewards has an Honor a Hero contest running through their Days Inn brand from October 15 through November 11, 2015. Days Inn is asking loved ones of military (active or retired) to share a photo and story as to why their loved one deserves a FREE 7-day stay.

Days Inn Honor a Hero Contest

You need to submit a photo and a Hero Story to enter the contest. The Hero Story is limited to 1,000 characters, so it is a short piece of writing, probably under 200 words.

EACH WEEK, ONE WINNER WILL RECEIVE…

  6 night / 7 day stay at any US Days Inn® location

  $1,000 Wyndham Rewards® Pre-paid Gift Card

Days inn is primarily a budget brand, however there are two exceptional Days Inn hotels with Inn at Ellis Square located in Savannah, Georgia and Days Inn Charleston Historic District in Charleston, South Carolina. These two hotels are outliers in the upscale hotel market segment compared to the typical Days Inn and either hotel has a location perfect for staying one week in these popular tourist cities. These two hotels happen to be ones I have seen in places where the surrounding hotels are often $300+ per night.

Contest rules state there are four weekly prizes and the second week’s judging happens today. So, put your fingers to the keypad and find a digital photo to upload of your military loved one. You have two more weeks to win a six night hotel stay and $1,000 hotel gift card.
