In November 2017 I wrote about a contest where you could win a trip for 2 to Hawaii from Billabong.
After posting about and entering the contest, I didn’t think about it again until I received an e-mail in the middle of February with the subject:Winner of the Billabong Hawaii House Sweepstakes.
At first I assumed it must be some sort of spam e-mail but then I opened up the message and saw that it was in fact sent from a Billabong e-mail address.
The prize includes flights for two to Honolulu along with a four night stay at the Billabong Pipeline House, located on the North Shore.
For such a short trip, it’s a pretty pricey one. Flights cost close to $1,000 and the house rents for $1,300 per night! (The T&Cs list the value at $1,000 per night.)
This will be Kim and my first visit to Hawaii. While we won’t have much time to explore Hawaii, we’re still excited for our trip in July!
I’ve had pretty good luck winning various prizes online and this is my biggest win to date and second trip that I’ve won. (In 2016 I won a trip for 2 to Cancun.)
Do you enter travel contests or do you feel that they’re a waste of time? And, if you’ve ever won a contest, let us know about your prize!
