If there’s one kind of contest worth taking the time to enter, it’s travel sweepstakes. A good vacation can be expensive — but it’s always the best kind of money spent: on life experiences.
The Travel Channel is running a contest right now to give away a $10,000 trip to Las Vegas, complete with delicious food, tickets to see the latest Cirque show, $1,500 in spending money, lodging and more. You only have a few days left to enter, so act now. It’s simple to enter. Just enter your email address and answer a travel-related trivia question.
Even if you don’t win, you can play a digital scratch card-type game, where you can win a free Travel Channel mug is you click and get three of the same image.
