Like myself, a fellow blogger is also celebrating her 1st year with “Boarding Area” and has launched a fantastic contest that has weekly winners throughout October, as well as 2 Grand Prize Winners that will be chosen at contest’s end!

Stacey of “VERY GOOD POINTS” has put together one of the best contests that I have seen from a blog and she was kind enough to invite readers of “LufthansaFlyer” to participate in the festivities. For the month of October, she is holding a weekly contest that gives away Hyatt or Starwood points based on entries she selects as winners based on her criteria each week. Please visit her site to take advantage of the weekly contests.

Here’s an overview of the weekly prizes:

Week 1 – Oct 1st – Oct 7th – blog post will be dated Oct 1st and deadline will be October 7th 2012, 8pm EST

Weekly prize – 20k Starwood Preferred Guest Starpoints

Week 2 – Oct 8th – Oct 14th blog post will be dated Oct 8th and deadline will be October 14th 2012, 8pm EST

Weekly prize – 50k Hyatt Gold Passport Points

Week 3 – Oct 15th – Oct 21st blog post will be dated Oct 15th and deadline will be October 21st 2012, 8pm EST

Week 4 – Oct 22nd – Oct 28th blog post will be dated Oct 22nd and deadline will be October 28th 2012, 8pm EST

Weekly prize – 20k Starwood Preferred Guest Starpoints

And the Grand Prizes:

Two Grand Prizes will be given away based upon all entries submitted during the 4 week contest period (starting Oct 1 2012 through Oct 28th 2012 at 8pm EST). There will be one bonus entry announced during the contest period and that will count as 1 additional entry. Any participant who enters more than 3 times per week is be disqualified.

Grand Prize #1 –

300k Delta Sky Miles

200k Hilton Honors Points

Grand Prize #2 –

240k US Airways Dividend Miles

100k Marriott Rewards Points

50k Hyatt Gold Passport Points

This is where LufthansaFlyer comes in:

TWO LufthansaFlyer readers will be chosen for the Grand Prize Entry pool at the end of the month. If you read both Very Good Points and LufthansaFlyer you’ll have one more entry that will increase your odds.

To enter for your chance to win the LufthansaFlyer portion of the contest and advance to the Grand Prize pool, all you have to do is leave a comment to this thread telling me about your most memorable travel experience that you can recall. It doesn’t have to be the “perfect” trip where angels sang along the way. It can be funny anecdotes, bad travel experiences or embarassing ones. It doesn’t matter as long as its something that you have experienced during your travels.

I will publish 2 contest entry posts during October (this one being the first), so you’ll have the opportunity to share 2 travel memories. From all the memories that are shared, I will at my discretion pick 2 unique winners (one winner per contest entry post) and send them over to “Very Good Points” for the Grand Prize opportunity. My criteria will include travel location, creativeness and the impact that it makes on me.

So without further ado, please share your travel memories and good luck! 🙂
