    Visit Here to enter

    Winner gets 2 tickets from USA to New Zealand.

    Hurry though, contest ends 12/23/2011

    For some peculiar reason, Rhode Island residents are not allowed to enter.

    Open to US residents of the Lower 48. Sorry Hawaii and Alaska....:(

    Thanks for posting. Hate those Facebook promotions. Do not have a Facebook account and not planning to get one.

    They always have in their T/C's a way to send in your name on a card to enter....Wonder what the odds are of them actually taking those cards and actually putting them in the drawing.

    When your reject the request for access, they try again and offer this reasoning. Quite interesting how they justify access to my work history, education history etc. just to participate in a sweepstakes. Sorry, not going to happen here.

    Here's a rundown of the various special permissions Sweepstakes requires, why we ask for them and what we use them for. Hopefully we'll change your mind; you could get lucky!
    [​IMG]
    Access my basic information – This is the default permission that all apps on Facebook require
    [​IMG]
    Send me email – We want to be able to communicate important information to you regarding your entry. You can opt out at any time if you do not wish to receive our notification emails.
    [​IMG]
    Access my profile information – We need to know your work history, education history and current city to provide you with a streamlined user experience.

    what if one created a fictitious FB account just for the purposes of these contests? A simple gmail or yahoo mail account should help you funnel that kind of marketing into a dedicated email and you wouldnt have to give up your true details.

    Yeah, I have one of those. In fact, I probably should create a few more with fictitious names, so my Mr. Hyde account can have some "friends"

    Perhaps mis spelling the name just by a letter would be enough to get by? but ultimately you're right, somewhere somehow you'll need to disclose more than you may be comfortable with.

    I'd definitely recommend using your real name for the FB account, or else in the unlikely event that you win it might be difficult to claim the prize... This sweekstakes in particular didn't ask for a FF # (I don't have one with Air NZ anyway). But my "Mr Hyde" FB account has no other information about me (and no friends).

    Might have something to do with the fact that I've won too many contests recently and the state is so small they figured they would just exclude the whole thing.

    That and if they landed their 777-300 LR in the state, it would stretch from one end to the next.
