New Orleans on a North American Contiki


It’s Mardi Gras and Contiki is adding some more crazy to the party! On top of our Facebook Get On The Bus contest where you and 4 friends can win the trip of a lifetime, we’re throwing in a cool giveaway for our Twitter followers! We’re basically more BI-WINNING! than Charlie Sheen.  But you already knew that.

For the Facebook contest you get to choose your favorite trip and fill a bus with your friends for a chance to win. But what we want to know is if you could fill your bus traveling to your favorite destination with celebrities instead of your friends, which celebrities would you choose? Not that your friends aren’t celebrities…we know you’re a bunch of rock stars.

Entrants will be randomly chosen to receive one of two prizes:

1.  $100 AMEX card (‘nough said)

2. $50 worth of Starbucks and iTunes cards (We know these are both highly addictive items, but we trust you’ll be responsible and won’t simultaneously drink, drive and shuffle.)

To Enter:

1. Follow @Contiki_US on Twitter

2. Let us know which celebrities you would pick to Get On The Bus with you and be sure to tag your answer with the hashtag #GetOnTheBus

That’s it! 2 steps to WINNING! Easier than pouring your morning coffee.

Enter quickly because we’ll be choosing two random winners at 2pm PST on Thursday, March 10th!

And if you haven’t checked out our Facebook contest yet you still have time!
