Amazon Gift Card Winners (For Contest Ending 1/5/2014 11:59PM PST)

I want to thank everyone for the great responses following my interview on Million Mile Secrets.  As was promised, I am giving away three $10 Amazon gift cards to those who either commented on the original post or those who followed us on Twitter and tweeted @MilesToMemories with the hashtag #MTM2014.  There were 40 total entries between the comments and Twitter.

The best part of this contest was reading about everyone’s travel dreams.  I am deeply inspired by travel and it makes me truly happy to interact with other people who have the same passion.  As I mentioned in the post the other day, there are a lot of people with dreams of visiting New Zealand.  Some of the other popular destinations were various parts of Africa and Europe and of course, Hawaii!


I used a random number generator from to pick the winners.  Each comment was numbered from  1-34 in the order posted and the Twitter entries were number 35-40 in the order received.



Here are the winners:

  1. Our first winner is Twitter user @marib117.  She tweeted: “@MilesToMemories My dream destination(s) are: the Baltics & St Petersburg, So. Africa & safari in Kruger NP, and Vietnam #MTM2014.”
  2. The second winner is Janet.  She commented: “I really enjoyed your MMS interview. We’ve traveled a lot but still have Antarctica on our wish list!”
  3. Our final winner is Molly.  She wrote: “Great to find your site! I have already been traveling with my favorite travel companions, husband and son, since 2008. We are new to the travel points/miles game and I’m hoping to learn how to use all of oour Avos points and Hilton Honors points to get back to Europe next year.”

Congratulations to the winners!  If you didn’t win this contest, make sure to come back this Friday for another giveaway!


  1. Hi Shawn. I’m twitter user @marib117. Wow!! Thank you for selecting me as a winner. You DM’ed me but twitter won’t let me reply via DM. I did tweet you, but thought I’d post here as well. I don’t want to send my email via an open tweet.
    Can you DM me an email for you so I can email you my info? Or can you pick up the email address I use as a subscriber to your blog? Thanks.
