Are you Klaus Heidi? Win A New Life In Berlin From Lufthansa Sweden

Screen Shot 2013-10-20 at 11.38.57 PM

Last week I came across a really bizarre promotion being ran by Lufthansa Sweden. Lufthansa refers to this offer as a contest but this isn’t exactly the case. I find it more to be a promotion since the prize is a bit gimmicky yet funny at the same time.

Before I explain more I’ll let you know that this offer is only open to  Swedish citizens but still worth hearing about.

Here is the promo:

Lufthansa is looking for Klaus Heidi and if you are willing to change your name, they might move you to Berlin for good! 

The Prize: Continue reading Are you Klaus Heidi? Win A New Life In Berlin From Lufthansa Sweden

Win A Trip to Florida From Southwest Airlines

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 7.18.31 AMI recently saw this giveaway mentioned in the Southwest Spirit Magazine e-mail.

Southwest is giving away a trip for 2 to St Pete Beach, Florida.

While I’m not really a fan of laying out on the beach, an experience included in the prize sounds really awesome. Along with air and hotel (and other extras) a JetLev flying jetpack experience comes with the prize package. The JetLev jetpack allows you to “soar up to 30 feet in the air or hover and walk along the water”.
