Share this post

Updated 7/7/15 @ 9pm PT: the winners have been randomly selected.  Award Wallet Plus upgrade code winners: brad1973, Patrick, Tonei, star, Nate, Bruce, Victor, anita, John, and Frank.  $10 Amazon eGift Card winners: Scott G, Dave Lu, Mark Pokedoff, matt, and Russell S.  Shirt winners are alex (cartoon) and JGR (FTU).  If you are a winner, check your email for your prize.  Thank you to everyone who participated in the giveaway.

Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a great 4th of July with your friends and family.  This post is 2 months late, since Travel with Grant turned 2 on May 3, 2015.  Side note: what is the appropriate celebratory name: blog birthday or blog anniversary (blogiversary)?  I’m leaning toward blog birthday since I am not *legally* married to Travel with Grant (#blogloveisreal).  Either way, I wanted to celebrate 2 great years of blogging with a few giveaway items.

But before I get to the giveaway, I wanted to say a few thank yous first.  Thank you to my readers who have been with me from the beginning and who continue to read my blog on a daily basis.  Thank you to my friends on Twitter (bloggers and non-bloggers alike) who are incredibly supportive and immensely knowledgeable.  Thank you to the handful of readers who show up at my various meetups to share tips and tricks.  Thank you to my readers who support my site by shopping on Amazon and Ebay or by applying for a credit card (or 4) through my credit card affiliate links.  And last but not least, a very special thank you to Randy Petersen and the Boarding Area team for their technical and educational help over the last year.

Grant and Randy BACON

Alright, time for the giveaway.  I have 2 men’s medium sized travel-related shirts up for grabs.  The first item is light gray shirt featuring a frequent flyer cartoon about award flights.

The second shirt is a dark gray/brown shirt from a Frequent Traveler University (FTU) event.  If you are interested in either shirt, please leave a comment below saying that you want shirt 1 (above, cartoon) or shirt 2 (below, FTU design).  I will then randomly select a winner from each group.  The winners will need to provide their mailing address when I email the winners.

I also have 10 Award Wallet Plus upgrade codes available.  If you are unfamiliar with Award Wallet, please read this post.  If you want an upgrade code, please leave a comment below about Award Wallet and I will randomly pick 10 winners and send you a code.

Award Wallet Plus Upgrade Codes

Last but not least, since Discover It has Amazon as a 5x cash back category this quarter, I will have 5 $10 Amazon eGift Cards to give away.  Everyone who leaves a comment and doesn’t win one of the above prizes will be entered to win an Amazon eGift Card.

2 Amazon Gift Cards

The contest ends 7pm PT on Monday night and winners will be emailed shortly thereafter.  Good luck to everyone who enters and here’s to another great year of Travel with Grant!

    Congrats Grant! AwardWallet would be a great tool to have under my belt, especially after Arrival gets rid of TripIt Pro!

  2. Jennifer

    Congrats on your anniversary! Award Wallet has saved our trip when the providers have changed our itineraries! Would love a code.

    Congratulations on your anniversary. I am impressed for you all. Good luck. This is an awesome giveaway, and I would use this to buy thomas and friends and garth brooks. I hope I win. :)

    Congratulations and happy anniversary! AwardWallet is really useful in keeping track of all of the different providers, although I think that getting a gold card is a bit much.

    I LOVE awardwallet! I have 82 accounts I track there, and could NEVER keep up with all of them without AW. The expiration warnings alone, are worth the small fee for the account upgrade. This has saved me thousands of points that I would have lost, The saved points are worth FAR more than the upgrade fees. Thank you, AW!!

    Great job on the blog. It’s not easy to run a blog. I, myself, gave up after 4 months. It’s a lot of work. Most people have no idea how much dedication it takes on top of your regular 9-5 job.
    Thanks for the generous giveaway! I would love the Amazon gift card to buy a gift for the hubby

    Happy Birthday to Grant!
    I found not so many bloggers living in Pacific Time Zone. However yours is the only I follow on daily basis as I usually get up late and miss lots of nice value of deals. By following you I am able to get updated info. I hope I could win the unique FTU t-shirt.
