    Um, WOW, nice prizes! I would love to participate but tweeting is not something I really know how to do. I have done it a couple of times and well to be honest not sure I did it correctly lol. Could you clarify. The way I read it in order to enter I have to do all of those 1,2 AND 3. Is this correct?

    Thanks TravelBear - no, you don't have to do all three to enter. You can enter up to three times per week by doing any of the things listed. If you don't tweet - then you have one less way to enter. You can just stick to commenting on the blog if you like.

    I think you missed a bit from your title: "... for US residents only"

    It's open to US and Canadian residents. Unfortunately, it's really tough to administer contests in foreign countries without having a team of lawyers to investigate all the rules and regulations! With the value of these prizes, many places actually require registration (which is why Rhode Island is excluded in the US). Maybe someday when my blog is as big as say, Travel and Leisure Magazine :), I'll open it up to other countries.

    My point was just that it would be nice if you made it clear up front rather than assume everyone is a US resident, that's all. Almost every free entry this or that promo on milepoint seems to be "US only", and if you're not in the US you just might get annoyed eventually.

    The T&C spell out the restrictions, so I don't see where there were assumptions made. If anything, it would have been reasonable for frequent readers to make the assumption that this giveaway like virtually all others is restricted to US/Canada (sans Quebec).

    As Boarding Area blogs often have veiled suggestions that changing one's country "virtually" is a good way to circumvent restrictions for, say, status matches, I wonder if a similar approach would be viable here. Nothing to lose I suppose.

    How can you do this? I have often wondered about these contests. Where are these points coming from?
