Tidbits for travelers: an in-flight Wi-Fi contest and a free hotel night

I’m a firm believer in that corny saying, “You can’t win if you don’t play.”  Works on many levels.

One example: contests and giveaways.

So here’s some information about an in-flight Wi-Fi contest and a hotel bounce-back offer to check out as you dig out of the snow and head out on the road this week:

Through the end of February, Gogo Inflight  Internet is offering  the on-line  Great Gogo Race.  Prizes include a free Gogo session or discounts for 25% or 50% off  inflight sessions.  Everyone wins something, and when you use your code on a Gogo-equipped AirTran Airways, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, or United Airlines airplane you’ll also get entered into that day’s drawing for a netbook.  End 2/28/10.

Red Roof Inn also has a few special offers rights now.  If you stay two weekend nights in February, you’ll get a voucher for  a free night (Sunday – Thursday) that can be used from March 1 – May 31, 2010.  The chain gives year-round discounts to teachers and, through April, is giving guests of many Red Roof Inns in Georgia, Ohio, and Florida, coupons good for Burger King breakfast sandwiches as well.
