Holiday Inn celebrates 60 years as a hotel brand since 1952 through a social media sweepstakes giving away 60 free nights to Twitter and Facebook entrants every day in August 2012.
There are two separate promotions running: Facebook/Twitter #celebratefirsts is the free night giveaway for August and Facebook “Then & Now” is a photo contest for a 6-night Family Vacation anywhere in the world.
The free nights giveaway prize is actually 25,000 Priority Club points. There will be 1,860 prizes given away in August with 60 prizes awarded among entries for each day.
Only one entry per day is permitted. Entries from one day period do not carry over to the giveaway selection for another day so you want to enter each day to improve your chances.
Simply tweet a description of a memorable first experience in your life, suitable for being read by all audiences, including the hashtag #celebratefirsts for one entry into the Holiday Inn free night sweepstakes.
Facebook entry: https://www.facebook.com/HolidayInnHotels
Share a short story, photo or video of a memorable first.
Take a moment to share your photos, videos, and stories on this page or through Twitter using the hashtag #celebratefirsts and you’ll be automatically entered to win a free room night to any Holiday Inn hotel in the world.
Sweepstakes eligibility: Legal residents of the 50 United States (and D.C.), Canada, and Mexico, 18 years and older. Ends 8/31/12 and 9/30/12.
