Le Club AccorHotels is getting into the spirit of the season with their “31 Thank You’s” sweepstakes.

Yesterday I received an email thanking me for my loyalty and inviting me to register and play their month-long game.

Inside is an Instant Win Game page, and if you answer the trivia questions correctly you’ll get one chance at the Instant Win prizes. Up to 1,000 potential daily winners will receive instant win prizes (at randomly-generated times). 13,576 people in total will be Instant winners throughout the entire month.

Tip: Make sure to click on the daily prize window to play early in the day, as it seems all the instant-win prizes are gone by later on.

I was surprised to find that “First Prize” wasn’t the best prize of the Instant Win prizes, nor was the Second Prize. In fact, out of the prize lineup I think the 5th Prize Dream Stay at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar (with rates at $400+ per night) would probably be my first choice.

There is a limit of one Instant Win Game prize per person per day. If you don’t win, you’ll be invited to share the sweepstakes by posting a link on Facebook or Twitter. If one of your friends registers for the promotion through the link you posted on social media, you’ll receive a bonus sweepstakes entry.

Even if you don’t win an Instant Prize, you’ll receive an entry into the big prize draw. The Grand Prize winner from all entries will be selected randomly on or around January 3, 2018, and will receive a 7 night trip for two people to French Polynesia.

The dreamy Grand Prize trip includes flights on Air Tahiti Nui between LAX and Papeete, and then the winner starts their whirlwind vacation that includes two nights in a 4 star hotel in Papeete. After two nights, flights onwards to Moorea are included, with two nights in a Luxury Garden Bungalow at the Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort. After enjoying daily American breakfast on the second day in Moorea, air transportation is again included to Bora Bora airport. Accommodations at the Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island are included for two nights, before the winner returns home.

This sweepstakes is a fun way to potentially win instant prizes, and that Grand Prize sure looks glorious. True, only one person will win the French Polynesia getaway, but someone has to win. Besides, some of those Instant Win prizes look pretty great too.

Good luck to everyone!
