Where is your dream vacation? Come on, everybody has one…well, everybody who likes to travel, anyway. We at The Vacation Gals have our own favorite travel destinations, and we are so very pleased to be partners in a wonderful travel contest. One incredibly lucky winner will get a $10,000 dream vacation! The winner of this travel contest giveaway will also receive a Sony Reader Pocket Edition and $100 Reader Store Gift Card.
This travel contest giveaway is sponsored by Sony Reader. Tablets like the Sony Reader are great to take on vacations: they weigh less than a pile of books and save space in our luggage, and eReader owners can load in many, many books for different users’ reading preferences. Again, whoever wins the $10,000 dream vacation will also win a Sony Reader Pocket Edition — and The Vacation Gals are giving away an additional Sony Reader Pocket Edition with a $25 gift card to the Reader Store to another contest entrant (as are each of the other travel blogs partnering in this incredible giveaway). The Sony Reader Pocket edition has a 5″ screen, is incredibly lightweight, and fits almost anywhere. Users can adjust the font size, too.
How to Enter the $10,000 Dream Vacation Contest
This is about you, and your dream vacation. To enter, imagine that you are there (wherever there may be), and write me a postcard from your fantasy travel destination. Tell me where you are, and what you loaded into your Sony Reader for the trip. Creativity counts for this part of the contest — have fun telling me what you’re doing on your dream vacation!
There are a couple of different “stages” to this dream vacation giveaway: You can enter as many times as you want, but once entry time is over and voting starts, you can only vote one time daily per entry. Also, the winner of the additional Sony Reader Pocket Edition will be chosen by the Vacation Gals using a random number generator.
After you’ve submitted (one of) your entries, it might take up to half a day for it to appear. This is because the Reader Getaway Giveaway team needs to validate each entry. Once your entry has been approved, you’ll get an email acknowledgement. You may enter the contest as often as you like between now (April 5) and April 19, 2011.
How the Winner of the Dream Vacation is Chosen
Entries are accepted until April 19, 2011, at 3:00 PM eastern Standard Time. Voting starts April 20, and continues through April 26, 2011. You may promote your postcards and encourage voting in whatever ethical, legal way you see fit. If you missed the entry period for this travel contest giveaway, you can still vote for your favorite dream vacation postcard entry or entries. There will be official rules regarding voting on the Reader Getaway Giveaway site once voting is open.
Whoever gets the most votes on his or her “postcard” entry wins the Grand Prize, and The Vacation Gals will randomly select the winner of the other Sony Reader.
The Grand Prize of a $10,000 travel stipend (to be used to take a dream vacation), plus a Sony Reader Pocket Edition and $100 Reader Store gift card will be announced on or around April 28, 2011.
No purchase necessary. Anyone over the age of 18 who resides in the United States can enter through this and/or another partner travel blog.
