A Sweepstakes Advantage (“SA”) member was ecstatic as she tells the story of how an ordinary trip win to a local music festival in Las Vegas became the most unforgettable thing about sweepstakes win she has ever had in her life, after receiving several upgrades for her accommodation and passes.
Bronze member, Shimmieshakes (not real name), shared her story on the SA Forum last September 24, 2012 after returning from Las Vegas. According to the SA member, she won a trip for two to the IHeartRadio Music Festival sponsored by Dish Network. The package included hotel accommodation, flight and tickets to both night of the concert. She and her husband were also provided with tickets for the first night’s After Party.
Due to a slight issue with the first room assigned to them, they were upgraded to a suite at the hotel. After watching the concert on the first night, they found themselves looking for shuttle that would take them to the After Party at The Mirage. They asked the Clear Channel representative, and before they knew it, they were sent off to the venue in a VIP limousine. At the After Party, they were seated at the VIP lounge and were served with premium, expensive liquor, and had their own server. Best of all, they were in the same room as the likes of Rihanna, Ne-Yo, Usher and Psy. The winner and her companion also met with the iHeartRadio president, and ended up scoring tickets to the After Party of the following night.
On the second night, the couple arrived early at the MGM grand to pick up their After Party tickets. At the concert venue, while waiting in line for the event to begin, they were asked to step out of the line for the Meet and Greet with Brad Paisley. When the Meet and Greet was over, they headed out but could not find their way. That’s when they bumped into a guy from the venue who took them around for a look. They were brought backstage and were told to sit on the front row and watch Pink practice her set before the doors officially opened to the general audience. The lucky couple also got to interact with Pink during her practice. In the meantime at the After Party, the SA member and her husband enjoyed the performance of Ne-Yo, with a special appearance of host, Ryan Seacrest.
“To say we have an amazing time would be an understatement. This was one of the most fantastic wins of my sweeping career. It will surely be hard to bear!” said Shimmieshakes in her note at the SA Forum. “Thanks so much SA and Dish for this incredible weekend.”
Shimmishakes admits that she has only slept a total of 6 hours during the trip but it was all worth it for this lucky couple.
SA’s CEO, Kenneth Carlos, expressed his congratulations to the lucky SA member and her husband for winning the trip and for having the time of their lives while enjoying their prize.
“I could not help but smile while reading the story of Shimmieshakes as she seemed to really have the best time of her life. It was a pleasure for Sweepstakes Advantage to be a part of your victory. We wish you more wins in the future. Congratulations!” said Carlos.
Several big winners also took home enormous prizes toward the end of the month of September. Bronze member, Frgreg92 (not real name), won the grand prize of the Coors Light Football 2012. The prize worth $5,900 entitled him of a trip for four to the college football event. He and his friends are now planning to go to New Orleans in 2013.
Another SA member also won a travel giveaway valued $18,000 for a week-long trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina. New member, Ddauphine (not real name), however, had to turn down the win from Delta Airlines EVITA Flyaway Contest as she is busy with work.
Meanwhile, new member, Faerimoon9 (not real name), won a trip to LA to attend the premiere of Disney’s Frankenweenie. She will be taking her son with her on this 4-day, 3-night trip to Los Angeles.
