I’ve written about IHG’s Priceless Experiences Sweepstakes, which you can enter every day between now and February 15, 2017.


There are several cool hotel contests & sweepstakes you can enter this holiday season. Here are a few more –

1. YOTEL’s 12 Days of Travel Surprises with instant win prizes. You only need your name, zip code and email address, and can enter manually without signing into Facebook. Even if you don’t win the online game you can still get 15% off YOTEL stays, and 20% off Flight 001 items.

It runs through 12/24/16, and you can enter daily. Angelina Travels also writes about how guests at the YOTEL can win onsite too.

2. Travel & Leisure’s 26 Days of Travel Giveaways.


There are no instant win prizes, but each day a different prize package is given away, and you need email address, name, mailing address and phone number to enter.

It runs through December 24, 2016, and you can enter daily.

3. Disney’s Moana Aulani Resort Getaway has a contest where you can win a 5-night trip for 4 to Disney’s Aulani Resort plus a $500 gift card.


It runs through December 30, 2016 and you can enter daily.

4. Not a hotel contest but one for your home – the HallMark Channel is running an ornament sweepstakes where each week a winner will get a set of 35 Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments plus an artificial Christmas tree to hang them on.


It runs through December 27, 2016. They’re also giving away a Turks & Caicos holiday and $5,000.

I’m pretty lucky in contests, so much so that I have even avoided entering contests before that I didn’t really really want to win. I usually give my prizes away but one of the coolest that I kept is a pair of very nice binoculars which is great for wildlife viewing.


Of course, one of the best contests you can enter is Magic of Miles daily contest. Today is Day 2, and to win today’s holiday goodie bag, let me know in the comments below what your coolest contest win has been. If you are one of those people that doesn’t usually win contests you can say that too.

Today’s Magic of Miles contest ends at 9pm PST tonight. Click here to read full contest details.

Good luck to all!

  1. I won a $500 gift card to Big Lots last year, I win small stuff here and there but nothing huge. The gift card was an exciting win though 🙂

  2. I won a dance contest and the prize was a 1 night stay at Borgota Hotel Casino in Atlantic City. I killed that competition! 😉

  3. Coolest contest win? A KitchenAid stand mixer. I know it’s nothing fancy, but I’ve always want one for a very long time. So, um, yay?

  4. Once won a free trip to Macau – already had flights booked though so only made use of the hotel portion (which was actually awesome since the ARV dropped so the 1099 hit wasnt so bad)

  5. I once won 1 Million Expedia points and a Vintage suitcase full of swag including Bose headphones. Unfortunately I didn’t use all the points before they devalued the program so got much less in value than I should have. Still pretty sweet though.

  6. Hi Magic of Miles. I am normally not very lucky at winning contest. In fact, I cannot think of a contest I have won. I have won some door prizes in the past. So maybe my luck will change with this one 🙂
