Follow Amex for the Chance to Win A Trip to Antigua's Jumby Bay

February 22, 2010 at 12:33 PM | by | ()

Here's the good news: Amex is giving you a chance to win roundtrip airfare for 2 to Antigua and 4-nights of all-inclusive accommodation at Jumby Bay. The resort is located on a 300-acre private island in the Caribbean, the perfect setting for a "tweetheart" getaway.

To enter, all you have to do is follow @americanexpress on Twitter and tweet once: “Hey @americanexpress, I want to take my tweetheart (insert your sweetheart’s first name here) on the ultimate romantic getaway. Pick me! http://bit.ly/bFgMGU #amexTravel”. You only have until tonight at 11:59pm ET to enter. The winner will be chosen at random on February 23 and American Express will tweet the winner's name on February 24.

Here's the bad news: If you win, you may have to sleep with one eye open. Jumby Bay's rooms have no keys, that's right, the doors don't lock. Now, one would assume that with rates starting at $1,395 in the high season you'd be safe from crime, right? Wrong. Antigua has had some problems with crime recently, including the murder of a couple of honeymooners. But, Jumby Bay’s General Manager assures patrons they are safe, saying the resort is crime free and is protected by a retired U.S. Secret Service agent.

Even if there aren't locks on the doors, we think a free trip is worth the risk, so get tweeting!
