Yes! The winner from my blog has been chosen and he has advanced to the final round of the Win a Trip for Two to Australia’s Gold Coast contest organized by BoardingArea.com and sponsored by American Express Gold Card. The winner was chosen using random.org from the 383 qualified entires I got on my blog. (All entries that did not leave a tip related to airline miles or loyalty points were purged. No, we did not ask for tips on whitening teeth!)
…and the winner was entry #68.
Entry # 68 was from Brian. He has been notified by email. His entry of his favorite tip for earning and using Loyalty Points was:
Congratulations Brian! You are now of 20 entries (one from each blog participating) who have made it to the ‘playoffs’. You have 1 in 20 chance to win – better than any lottery you can ever buy. All the best to you and the companion you are planning to take with you to Australia. I hope you win – for your sake and the fact that I win an iPad if you do!
I would also like to thank all the 383 readers who took the time to participate by leaving their comments. There were some excellent entries with great tips. I am sure this set of comments will become a source of tips for many readers of my blog for years to come. Thank you once again for your support of my blog.
Good Luck and safe travels. The final winner will be announced shortly.
