Sunday, June 28: Congrats to Jeff M., who won the random drawing! (And I hope you make that trip to Vienna! 🙂 ) And thanks to everyone who entered! 

This week marks my first year as Rene’s Points for Better Travel’s owner. And editor. And lead writer. And social network guy. And business manager. And customer service rep. And …

To celebrate — and say thank you — I wanted to do a fun SWAG Saturday.

So one lucky winner will receive:

  • $10 Amazon gift certificate
  • Contactless door opener and button-pusher thingamy (similar to this)
  • Delta One amenity kit by Tumi

About the Prizes

We’ve received comments in the past along the lines of anyone who flies already has your stupid prizes anyway!

Sure, many people do have Delta One amenity kits.

But not everyone has been so lucky as to fly upfront. Others would like to regift an amenity kit to someone else. Or donate it to a shelter.

So if the prizes aren’t up to your standard, please abstain from entering. Let someone else enjoy them.

(Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.)

How to Enter

Easy! In the Comments section below, just tell me which destination you can’t wait to visit when this COVID-19 garbage is over.

Destinations must be actual, physical locations on Earth.

Heck, why limit it to just one? If you want to visit, say, Rome and Sydney, tell us! You’ll increase your chances of winning if you enter each destination as a separate comment. So feel free to enter as many times as you wish.

Please keep your comments on-subject. Also, I’m in the Pacific Time Zone and spending some time with my family this weekend. So please don’t worry if your comment isn’t instantly moderated! 🙂

I’ll select a winner via Random.org at 8:00 PM Eastern tomorrow, Sunday, June 28. The winner will be notified by email and also announce it on the blog.

— Chris

    I can’t wait to visit Cape Town! Although I’ll probably have to wait until next year.

  2. Stephanie Woods

    I want to go to Egypt and Morocco like I was supposed to right before COVID broke out.

  3. Singapore! To see family and enjoy good food.

  4. Morocco – I just watched Aladdin again so…

  5. Our bucket list trip to see the Passion Play in Oberammergau, Germany got cancelled as a result of COVID-19. Since this historic spectacle happens only once in a decade, the next production may be our last chance (we’re 70 and 68 years old) — so that has to be at the very top of our list.

  6. Brazil – the airline cancelled my flight in April.

  7. Ireland. Booked it for October, keeping fingers crossed.

  8. In March, I was suppose to go to Germany and Ireland. That is too of list!

  9. Definitely New Zealand with my wife and family!

  10. Aruba. I need some sun and sand to recover from this pandemic.

  11. Congrats, Chris! I’m looking forward to going to Hawaii without a 14-day quarantine at some point in the hopefully near future.

  12. Los Angeles. I can never decide what I like best, Florida or California.

  13. Las Vegas. It changes every time I visit. Makes it fun even though I lose money there.

  14. I cannot wait to visit my relatives in Ukraine. I had originally planned to go July 2020…but Covid ruined everything :.( would love the Delta amenity kit for my trip!

  15. Greenland, because I’ve always dreamt of seeing ice glaciers floating across the waters

  16. New Zealand because it’s beautiful & I know they are Covid free!

  17. We just had to cancel a trip to Spain scheduled for July yesterday. Can’t wait to recreate that sometime in the future.

  18. Covid 19 has already claimed our trip to Japan that was scheduled in April…maybe we will get to go sometime in the future if points and miles are kind to us again.

  19. Shanghai Disney

    (P.S. Thanks for SWAG Saturday)

  20. Tokyo Disney. Heck Tokyo in general. Really want to go back there.

  21. Definitely time to go back to the UK. I hope Virgin is still in business and I will be able to get lots of Delta MQDs by flying it.

  22. Louisville, KY to attend the Kentucky Derby

  23. Mary Beth

    To visit family on the mainland and then come home to Hawaii with no quarantine!

  24. Thailand!!! congrats on 1 year anniversary Chris!!

  25. Vietnam and Cambodia, to resurrect a trip that was canceled earlier this month!

  26. carla brown

    Guadeloupe – French West Indies ! I have had 2 trips there cancelled due to Covid and am itching to get back.

  27. Hawaii… had to cancel Spring Break trip with the family this year.

  28. Time to visit some domestic places, looking at Yellowstone and Badlands National Parks

  29. Chris, congratulations on the one year anniversary! We plan to go to Hawaii next year.

  30. Kimberly Beaulieu

    Morocco is one of our trips soon but we’ll see

  31. Kimberly Beaulieu

    St Lucia, which was postponed due to Covid

  32. Clifford Pace

    Athens, Greece / Georgia / Turkey / Bulgaria / Romania / Sochi, Russia – May 2021

  33. Mary Beth

    I want to visit my daughter in Virginia. It’s now a very long trip from Hawaii where I live.

  34. I hope you’re leaving this contest open Sunday 27JUN2027 because the Sunday 27JUN does not exist in 2020. The last occurance of Sunday Jun 27 was in 2010 and the next one will occur in 2027.

    And oh, USM, LGK and PEN will be my vote for island destination.
