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.
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.
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.
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!
