Whoa Whoa Whoa: The Grand Prize for 'Amazing Race Canada' is Seriously Amazing

August 1, 2014 at 2:00 PM | by | Comments (0)

There once was a time long, long ago when we breathlessly reported the globe-hopping antics of the reality TV show Amazing Race. Alas, we gave up after Season 18 and, now that they're still going strong with what surely must be Season 81, all the Amazing Race excitement fails to raise even an eyebrow.

That is, until we heard about Amazing Race Canada.

The competitors north of the border are the usual mix of cutesy couples, inspiring athletes, and curmudgeonly strange bedfellows; the destinations are as exotic and far-flung as ever; alas, it's the grand prize that's worth sitting up for.

The winning team of Amazing Race Canada's Season 2 will receive $250,000 CAD, two Chevrolet Silverados, gas for life from Petro-Canada, and a year of unlimited Business Class travel on Air Canada.

Believe it or not, the TSA has put out a call for submissions for how to make security screening faster and more efficient. And if your plan is as good as you think it is, you'll be able to earn back some of your tax dollars, as the TSA will award one prize of at least $5,000 and several others of $2,500 for the best new ideas ($15,000 in total).

Travel Contest Alert: Selfies are Good for Something, Like Winning a Trip to Croatia

Where: Croatia
June 18, 2014 at 8:42 AM | by | Comments (0)

Love them or hate them selfies are here to stay, so go ahead and use them to your advantage—like to score a free trip over to Croatia.

The country’s tourism board is taking advantage of our social media narcissism, and they’re rewarding one lucky person with a trip to the country. The rules seem pretty simple; basically you need to take and share a selfie using the hashtags #lovecroatia or #sharecroatia. After that a free trip might just be yours, as they’re giving away round-trip airfare and a 7-night stay along the country’s picturesque coast.

JetBlue's All-You-Can-Jet Pass is Back! But There's a Catch...

May 15, 2014 at 12:14 PM | by | Comments (0)

Without a doubt, one of the best modern airline promotions was JetBlue's All-You-Can-Jet Pass, which existed in 2009 and 2010 to allow purchasers to enjoy unlimited JetBlue flights for one month.

The passes were so popular and the resulting press and experiences so impressive that JetBlue brought back reduced versions of the pass in more recent years (BluePass and GoPacks), but the original generous AYCJ Pass has been retired.

Until now.

Play Pilot and Win Free British Airways Flights (Again!)

May 8, 2014 at 3:20 PM | by | Comments (0)

How badly do you want to win free airline tickets? Perhaps bad enough to wait in a line during your commute and bite your lip while flying a British Airways Boeing 777 simulator to several BA tropical destinations? Hopefully you've answered "of course," because that's exactly what's in store for intrepid travelers heading through London's Victoria Station this week.

The promotion, which gives away an unbelievable amount of free flights, returns after a successful run in early 2013, which we wrote about then:

It’s not a state of the art simulator, of course. This is more the kind you’d see in an arcade game. Every day this week, it’ll be loaded with a different airport approach, and your job is to land the plane. That alone is fun enough. But here’s the best bit: every 15 minutes, the person with the highest score in those 15 minutes will win a pair of flights to the airport in question. Yes – they’re giving away 60 flights a day. This is inspired.
