Hotels.com has a new sweepstakes where you could win a $15,000 dream honeymoon. It's easy to qualify to win, but there's a catch. And it might just upset a few of your in-laws. For this sweepstakes, all you have to do is capture yourselves on video incorporating "Hotels.com" into your wedding vows. Yes, your real wedding vows, and your real wedding. Also, you have to have a wedding guest capture the moment--professional wedding photographers don't count.
From there, all you have to do is post the video to your Instagram or Twitter accounts, tagging @hotelsdotcom and including the hashtag #HotelsSponConVows. If you're thinking of entering, keep in mind that Hotels.com judges will be looking at creativity and originality to pick their winner!
Hey, it's the age of the Influencer, so why not do some sponsored content for the chance at a killer honeymoon? Well, for one, you might enrage your in-laws...or your own parents. You'll probably want to let all your guests know you're planning on entering the sweepstakes,. That way, no one gets too surprised when you start name-dropping brands in the middle of telling your soulmate how deeply, cosmically in love with them you are.
As for the money, it will come in the form of a $10,000 Hotels.com gift card for all your bookings, plus a $5,000 Visa cash card for honeymoon expenses along the way. It's all part of a promotion for Hulu's Four Weddings and a Funeral, starring Mindy Kaling. The whole sweepstakes is a play off the actual plot of the movie, where Mindy plays a character whose wedding is sponsored by Hotels.com.
Would your family freak out if you did this? Would they change their tune if you actually won the prize? I know my grandparents would be none too thrilled, but my cousin would think it was hilarious.
Either way, you'll be a part of corporate history if you give it a shot. And it might actually pay off! For official rules to the sweepstakes, go here.
