My last blog post was how Southwest and Xcor were teaming up for a suborbital contract. This time, however is even a more exciting deal.
The deal is that Xcor and Tripalertz are teaming up to send a lucky winner into space for free. Now the promotion ends at 11:59:59 p.m. PT on June 21, 2011 and there are also incentives for signing up friends and spending money with Tripalertz.
You’ll need to read all of the official sweepstakes rules to decide if this is for you. For instance there is this clause in the official rules that makes me wonder what up with that: GRAND PRIZE IS ASSIGNABLE BY WINNER, SUBJECT TO THE APPROVAL OF XCOR AEROSPACE, BUT MAY NOT BE SOLD.
This “Subject to the approval of Xcor Aerospace” line needs to be explained. Does this mean if someone is in poor health, they cannot go up? Or is this a way to weasel out of the prize. You decide for yourself.
Anyway, it just takes a few seconds to join the contest and most likely it is legitimate since Xcor wouldn’t want bad press just when they are launching their new business.
So, if you’d like a free trip into space, here’s your chance to do so.
