I am grateful to Hilton and SA for this huge win!
(PRWEB) October 15, 2012
After barely a month of joining sweepstakes, a new member of Sweepstakes Advantage (“SA”) was chosen as the lucky winner of an all-expense paid trip for two to China, courtesy of Discovery Times Square. The prize package included a roundtrip business class airfare and an unforgettable Discovery Adventures Classic Chine Adventure for the winner and her lucky guest.
Morgannia (not real name), joined SA on July 17, 2012 but only started sweeping on the first week of August. With barely a month after, on August 27, 2012, she received a phone call from Discovery, informing her that she had won a trip for two to the said Asian country. She brought her sister with her as the trip was a short notice, and her sister was the only one in the family who can join her.
“I didn’t even have a passport when they called me,” said Morgannia in her post at the SA Forum. “We flew out on September 28 and got back on the 6th of October. I was afraid to post about it beforehand as I didn’t want to jinx myself.”
The very happy SA member did not believe her win until she was on board the plane. It was only until she was safely home in the country when she decided to share her stories and acknowledge the website that was instrumental to her victory.
In her post, she shared how much fun she had exploring the wonders of “The Sleeping Giant.”
“The trip itself was phenomenal. We hit the Great Wall of China, which we actually tobogganed down. We visited Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, the Terracotta Warriors, the Western Lake, a tea plantation, a gorgeous canal town, and the Shanghai museum. The acrobats were among the highlights. It was really a trip of a lifetime.”
Morgannia found out that it was also the national holiday week in China, and as expected, there were thousands of tourists roaming around the country that Chinese tourists are mobbed everywhere.
Although Morgannia had to pay for the taxes, which she split with her sister, she said the trip was all worth it.
SA’s CEO, Kenneth Carlos, congratulated her on the big win. “Congratulations to Morgannia for her wonderful win. We do have many winners who do not believe they got big prizes until the package is already in front of them. Morgannia’s win was a really big one and initially feeling it is unbelievable is a normal thing. I’m glad Sweepstakes Advantage helped her achieve it!”
Meanwhile, several other players took home their own trip package wins early this October.
Bronze SA member, One4bri (not real name), welcomed the month with a win from the Hilton Garden Inn 2012 To-Do List Contest, which entitles him for a trip to the Washington D.C.
“I have been a police officer in California for twenty years and have always wanted to fly to Washington DC to see the Peace Officer Memorial Wall that bears the names of every American police officer killed in the line of duty. It is a solemn reminder of the sacrifices that police officers make in every community,” said the excited winner.
One4bri’s trip package includes airfare and hotel accommodations, as well as $2,000 in spending money which they will use to extend their trip and go to New York. Hilton representatives have been very supportive, agreeing to cover for the winner’s return flight from New York.
“I am grateful to Hilton and SA for this huge win! This is my first big trip win and my biggest win so far,” One4bri said.
On the other hand, an SA member took home not just one but two trip wins in one day.
“I had quite the day. Checked email to find I was the Grand Prize winner of the all expense paid wine lovers trip for 2 to Portugal on the Wines of Portugal Facebook contest!” Shanna364 (not real name), a bronze SA member, shared her $8000-win on SA Forum.
On the same day, she checked her mail and found a notification saying that she is one of the winners in the Chrysler/Dodge RAM JAM 2012 contest, and that is entitled to a trip for two to Nashville, TN for 2 nights and 3 days. She will also be getting $690 spending money for her trip.
