I’ve partnered up with Air Transat to kick off my very first contest! I like free stuff. You like free stuff. Let’s get it started.
First of all: Air Transat has their very own sweet contest dealio going on, open to all Canadians. It’s called Suddenly Summer, and Air Transat Facebook Fans will be given the opportunity to win an all-inclusive 7-day trip for two to the Paradisius Palma Real in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. You’ll travel club class, get picked up at the hotel, and be spoiled with free food, drinks, activities, etc.
Just go to the Facebook Air Transat fan page, and navigate to the PROMO tab. All you have to do is select a virtual seat in the virtual plane, and you’ll be entered in a random draw! Contest closes February 25th, 2011.
BUT as compensation for being so awesome, I was also invited to carry out my very own contest.
The prize? A Sanyo Waterproof Camcorder! Shhhhyeah. One for me, one for you. Waterproof. Meaning I can drop it in my beer and IT’LL STILL WORK (unless said beer is deeper than 1.5 metres, but then we have a whole different problem to worry about).
Unfortunately, this contest is open only to Canadians. Shipping fees suck.
Here’s how to enter:
1. Head over to Facebook and “like” my fan page. Let me know you’ve done so. If you’ve already done so, pat yourself on the back for being so efficient.
2. Leave a comment on this post telling me something new you’d like to see on Candice Does the World, or something you’d like to see MORE of. More Newfie language lessons? More angry rants? An advice column? No suggestion is too bizarre! Other than nude pictures. You will immediately be disqualified if you ask for nude pictures.
If your answer is legitimate, you’ll be entered into a random draw using Random.org. Winner will receive the camcorder. Simple. Draw will take place one week from now on February 22nd!
