For All Of You Powerball Losers Out There, Marriott's Got a New Contest To Enter
Ok, so you probably didn't win the $600-million Powerball drawing this past weekend, but we've got another contest for you to enter, this one with a bit better odds.
Marriott is giving away a customized trip to one of its eight tropical resorts in the Marriott Caribbean & Mexico Resorts collection, which include resorts in Aruba, Cancun (2), Puerto Vallarta, Curacao, Grand Cayman, St. Kitts, and St. Thomas. If you win, you get a five-night stay, daily breakfast for two, and a $200 resort credit at your choice of the above destinations.
How do you win? First, you follow Marriott Resorts Pinterest page and create a board on your Pinterest profile named “My Marriott Resorts Vacation.” Then, you find the "Pin Your Dream Vacation Board" located on Marriott's page and repin one image from each of the five categories (resorts, destinations, activities & amenities, dining and shopping) in your "My Marriott Resorts Vacation" board. Then dust off your hands and put your feet up -- this will automatically enter you in the contest.
The winner will be chosen at random, and if you aren't a fan of Pinterest, you can also enter via Facebook on the Marriott Resorts Caribbean and Mexico page. There's a part of us that feels a bit used given that Marriott (and other hotels) are now obviously using us as marketing tools while only rewarding one, but we suppose that is indeed the world today, and we certainly won't be complaining if we are, by some chance, the lucky one.
The contest is open now through June 21 to U.S. residents 18 and over, so get on it!
