Final Giveaway – iPad Mini Retina, 15,000 Hyatt Points, and GoGo!

Written by Charlie

Well, it has been a fun week! We have had 15 winners so far – and the biggest giveaway is coming today!

CONTEST ENDED! Thanks to all for entering!

Mega Giveaway – Day 6, the Finale!

Thanks so much to all who have participated and chimed in with so many great responses, ideas, and kind words. This giveaway was really made possible by everyone who has supported the website over the last couple of months and for that, I say thank you. This site allows me to earn some money through Amazon referrals, (some) credit cards that you open through referrals on this site, and advertising on the site. All of this has really been a help to me and allowed me to work harder at making this blog be a place that can provide some assistance in the world of travel, deals, running, miles, and points as well as some real life applications of those travel tools.

Mega Giveaway Day 5 Winners

I know I have normally listed the winners of the previous day’s giveaway here, but I will put that out with the announcements of this giveaway’s winners. Don’t worry, if you won yesterday, you will be contacted today!

The Last Giveaway Day!

For today, you can leave a comment about whatever you want! Just keep it family friendly and hopefully somehow relevant to the topics covered here (even a “hey” will suffice!). If you want the Hyatt points, it is not a requirement, but consider leaving a comment regarding where you would like to use the points for a stay!

Also, since it is the last day, this giveaway will run until Monday at 3PM Easter Time. This ensures that anyone that wants to enter and might not read the blogs every day of the weekend will get a chance. You can enter a total of three times – once per day.

  • You may enter 1 time each day (up to 3 times total)
  • This giveaway will run until Monday at 3PM Eastern Time
  • Sorry, but the items that must be shipped will only be shipped to U.S. addresses. If you live outside of the US, please make sure there is an address in the US where it can be shipped to.
  • The decisions made in these giveaways are made by me and me alone. Unless otherwise mentioned, all prizes have been purchased by me.
  • Important: The winners will be contacted in order of random selection to see which item they will want. So, first winner selected will have the first choice and so on.

Item #1 – GoGo In-Flight Pass

One of the items being given away today is an in-flight internet pass by GoGo (provided by BoardingArea). This pass is good for a single-use connectivity product on a domestic U.S. flight and does not expire until June 30, 2015.

Item #2 – iPad Mini Retina (or iPad Mini 2 as it is now called)

The tablet has really changed a lot about how people gather and use information. Apple has had no small part in that tablet adoption and expansion. One of the best tablets they have made was the iPad Mini Retina. This was a very upgraded version of their first 7.9″ with better specs and the beautiful Retina screen.

The model I am giving is actually an Apple refurbished model (otherwise it would have been the original iPad mini without the Retina – believe me, you want the Retina!) and is the 16GB storage model. It is the Space Gray mini. I use mine all the time. It is on me whenever I leave my house and it has been a tremendous tool. It is really good for air travel given its small size. Retail price: $299

Item #3 – 15,000 Hyatt Gold Passport Points


You could use these points for 1 night at the great Park Hyatt Seoul!

Thanks to Hyatt for giving these points to one lucky winner! These points will allow you to have your pick of redemption options. It is enough points for the following:

  • 3 nights in a category 1
  • 2is nights in a category 2 (1,000 points short of the second night)
  • 1 night in a category 3 or 4
  • It is also enough points to cover the points half of  Points+Cash booking at any Hyatt hotel (the lower categories will give you more nights

Besides all of that, it can also be used towards any redemption you have in mind with Hyatt points. I would place the value of Hyatt points at around 1.7 cents per point, so this prize would have a theoretical value of $255!

Not required for winning, but you could leave a comment on where you would like to use these points should you win!

Don’t forget – you can enter once each day until Monday at 3:00PM ET! Thanks to all for playing along!
