A few days remain to enter SWISS’ contest that will award the winner 2 Business Class tickets from the USA to Switzerland. Once in Switzerland, the winner will be spoiled with 3 nights at the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz where Spa treatments will be the main focus. In addition, the winner will also receive a pair of First Class Swiss Rail passes valid for travel around Switzerland for 8 days.
The focus of the contest is to celebrate SWISS’ 777 service between the USA and Zurich. Currently they use the 777 from Los Angeles, Miami, and San Francisco. Later this year Chicago will be added to this list.
To enter the contest, visit this link and complete the entry requirements. The contest ends on February 26 at midnight (US Eastern Time). The winner must complete travel by March 18, 2018. For all the fine print, click here.
Late last night I received a message from a reader who asked if I could help him find a good home for 2 eVouchers that are expiring at the end of this year. Unfortunately (or fortunately for you?) he won’t be able to use the vouchers for his own travels, but has generously offered them up to a deserving traveller…..
After thinking on it for a few hours I think I’ve come up with the perfect way to get these vouchers into the hands of someone who can use them.
For the next 3 days, until midnight December 24, anyone who leaves their travel plans in the comment section of this post will have a chance to get the vouchers. Once the deadline passes, the person (grantor) donating these vouchers will review all entries and he will pick the one that he feels is the best one. One winner will receive both vouchers.
Keep in mind, your itinerary must already be booked. In order to get the vouchers, your PNR or Locator code must be used when the vouchers are redeemed by the grantor.
Even though the vouchers expire on December 31, they can be applied to bookings in the future. You do not need to travel by the end of this month.
Keep in mind that not every fare class is eligible for upgrade via voucher. It is your responsibility to know if your fares are upgradeable! The winner will not be awarded the vouchers if the fares in their itinerary are not eligible.
To learn about the various options, including fare classes and using the vouchers on Star Alliance partners, please visit the FlyerTalk thread that specifically addresses how to use the vouchers. Pay special attention to the ‘Wiki’ at the top of that thread. If you have any specific ‘what-if’ questions, feel free to post them in that thread.
You can also refer to the Miles & More ‘Terms and Conditions’ for additional rules governing the use of Vouchers. Please do not leave questions in the comment area as to how to use the vouchers. There’s no guarantee that I’ll be able to answer the question in a timely manner.
The winner will be contacted by email by December 27. Please make sure to leave your email address in the appropriate field when entering your comments.
LufthansaFlyer assumes no responsibility or liability as to the use of the vouchers.
UPDATE: The vouchers have to ‘clear’ before expiring on December 31. Should the winner’s booking not ‘clear’ the upgrade at the time the upgrade is requested, another winner may be selected if the Grantor choses to do so.
To celebrate the release of the ‘Peanuts’ movie on 24 December, Lufthansa has launched an interactive contest that will award its Grand Prize Winner a travel voucher for €2500 valid for travel anywhere in the Lufthansa network.
The contest is broken up into 3 weekly games that require a bit of ‘skill’ to complete. Successfully completing each game garners you one entry into the drawing for prizes. You can earn one entry for each day you participate, ultimately having the ability to have 21 entries towards the prize pool.
Other prizes include private cinema showings of the movie, replica models of Schroeder’s Piano and bed linen sets featuring the Peanuts crew.
Unfortunately the contest is only open to ‘legal’ residents of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland (terms/conditions).
The contest ends on 29 December and the winners will be selected on 11 January, 2016.
