Here’s another contest for winning some great travel items. One lucky person will receive two pieces of luggage from Swiss Army and a $100 American Express gift card, altogether worth $500! You can also guarantee yourself some free car rental days just by participating.
First, National Car Rental is running a ONETWOFREE offer whereby you become eligible for getting a free rental day for every two days your rent a car. Just go to the website and enroll into the Emerald Club. If you are already enrolled into the Emerald Club you can still register for the ONETWOFREE special offer that ends January 2013.
On top of that, we’ll also be selecting one person for a prize package worth $500! To participate all you have to do is post your favorite Traveler Truth in the comments of this blog piece or in the comments of our Facebook page where we will share this blog piece. A Travel Truth is your number one rule for the road – something like ‘pack light and bring only what you need’, ‘cook your meals instead of going to restaurants’, or even something more philosophical like ‘One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.’
We will accept Travel Truth entries until Monday, November 5, 2012 at 10am CST. At that time we will choose our favorite one for the The National Car Rental Travel Prize Pack valued at $500. This prize consists of 3 things: 1) a Swiss Army WT Wheeled Tote bag, 2) a Swiss Army WT Deluxe Garment Sleeve, and 3) a $100 American Express gift card. How cool is that?!
You can also guarantee yourself some additional free car rentals with National by doing the following things. First, if you email a screenshot of your Travel Truth comment on our blog or Facebook page and also include the name of our blog (How To Travel For Free) and your Emerald Club number to OneTwoFree@ehi.com, you will receive one free rental credit that goes towards the ONETWOFREE program. So instead of getting one free rental after paying for two rentals, you get one free rental after paying for only one rental.
Additionally, if you take part in the Travel Truth conversation, enroll in the ONWTWOFREE program, and refer your Facebook friends or Twitter followers (there will be an option to share once you sign up), you will automatically receive another free rental credit for ONETWOFREE. Again, these credits give you one free rental after paying for only one rental.
So free car rentals and a chance to win some great travel luggage from Swiss Army and a $100 American Express gift card! We look forward to seeing your Travel Truths in our blog and on our Facebook page!
I like to take only a carry-on. That way my luggage can’t get lost, and I have less stuff to keep up with. If I really need something I didn’t pack, I buy it there and give it away before I leave!
Travel Truth: Make a daily spending budget and stick to it! If you want to do an activity, cut your meals down to 2, a big breakfast later in the day and an early dinner will keep you going! Snacks like bananas are always cheap.
And the winner of our Travel Truth contest is Laura Elizabeth for her entry “When it comes to stuff and packing: Less really is more.” No doubt, these are very wise words for ANY traveler for ANY trip. Congrats, Laura and enjoy the Swiss Army travel luggage and the $100 Amex gift card!
Thanks for sharing this contest Keith! Can’t wait to go somewhere with the new luggage!
And thank you to National Car Rental for sponsoring the contest!!!
