Preface: I am not 100% certain if this contest is open to everyone in any country of if there are eligibility restrictions. The terms/conditions do not clearly spell out participation rules. So you might be able to enter, but you may not be eligible.
To celebrate the Swiss National Team’s participation in the World Cup that starts this week, SWISS is giving away a pair of Economy Tickets to a lucky winner for every match that the team plays. The tickets will be valid for travel anywhere on SWISS’ world-wide network.
To enter, all you have to do is visit THIS LINK and enter your guess as to how many goals the team will score against their opponents. You’ll have to go to the Contest Entry Site ahead of each match and make your guess for the game.
As I mentioned, this contest may not be open to everyone. It may only be offered for residents of Switzerland, but I have not seen that anywhere in the T/Cs. I was able to enter successfully, so perhaps it is open to all. Regardless, it will only take you a minute to enter so even if your entry is not eligible, you didn’t waste much of your time.

SWISS has just started a great contest that will award a lucky winner a trip to Switzerland and be a guest of celebrity Chef Reto Mathis as he takes you on a ‘Safari’ of the finest dining opportunities in St. Moritz.
For those of you familiar with SWISS, you’ll recognize Chef Mathis as one of the Chefs who has previously participated in SWISS’ ‘Taste Of Switzerland’ culinary program. This program provides passengers flying in First and Business Class an opportunity to experience the menus of some of Switzerland’s finest Chefs.
The following video features Chef Mathis as he discusses his participation in SWISS’ program:
The prize package includes 2 Economy Tickets on SWISS to St. Moritz from any USA gateway, 3 nights at the Hotel Steffani in St. Moritz and a pair of 8-day First Class Rail Passes so that you can explore the beauty of Switzerland by train.
Additionally, the trip will need to take place between October 1 and 19 due to the Chef’s availability. The deadline to enter the contest is May 4, and is open to USA residents only.
To enter the contest, you’ll need to visit SWISS’ Facebook Page and fill out an entry form and answer a test question that asks: Why would you use a dog instead of a pig when searching for truffles?
The reason for the question is that when it comes to contests and European laws, there usually needs to be some kind of skill question that will make an entry valid.
AUSTRIAN is running a fantastic contest to celebrate their ‘Tashcerl’ amenity kit that is available on Austrian long haul flights. The contest is available through their Facebook website and is easy to enter.
Basically, AUSTRIAN’s Facebook visitors will enter the contest and vote for one of 3 destinations: New York, Ibiza or Bangkok. When the contest ends, a winner will be selected and will be awarded 2 Economy Class tickets to the destination that received the highest vote count. If you are reading this in the USA, here is a hint – don’t vote for New York! :) Vote for something far more exciting and exotic!
Vote for your favorite destination, you may end up winning a trip to it! :)
In addition to the Grand Prize, 50 other winners will win an authentic Austrian Tascherl amenity kit.
The contest will run until April 13, 2014 with the winner being announced on April 16, 2014.
