Over on Facebook, followers that "like" Kimpton can participate in a "Rock the Robe" sweepstakes to win one of three animal print robes--giraffe, zebra and cheetah--that will be given away each week throughout the month of October. The sweepstakes seems harmless but it does require letting a sweepstakes app access your info, something which we personally never allow on our FB page. Not even for Bieber tickets!
But there's another way to win a free robe, although it won't be easy. Kimpton is conducting a "I Want My Warm Fuzzy" robe giveaway tomorrow, offering a free robe to the first 10 people on Twitter that tweet “I want my warm fuzzy,” using the hashtag #rocktherobe. Great, not only do we have to be on guard for the iPhone 4S, we've got to squat on Twitter to get a free robe. It is worth it though, it is worth it.
But if you don't win on either Twitter or Facebook, or just can't be bothered with this social media madness, you can get a 30 percent discount on the robe all month long at KimptonStyle.com. The robes usually cost $90 but you can get 'em this month for a warm and fuzzy $63.
NOTE: This discount does not apply to Michaele Salahi, notorious hotel bathrobe klepto. (Those are our words, not Kimpton's.)
