This is your final reminder that you have until 4:00pm EST tomorrow – just 23 hours left! – to enter my great seatmate giveaway for Star Mega Do 4, coming up this November. There have only been about 20 entries so far, so if you’re passionate about flying and you are interested in coming along for the ride, your chances are good!

Check out my original post from Monday to find out the details of the Megado and what you need to do to enter, but here’s a brief rundown:

Create a photo with caption explaining why I should choose you.

I will be judging based on creativity and humor, so try to be original. This site will help you make your own photo with a caption in no time. There are two ways to enter and you can use both methods, but you need to create a unique entry for each.

1. Twitter: Follow The Points Guy on Twitter and Tweet your photo to @thepointsguy and include the hashtag #greatseatmate in your Tweet.

2. Instagram: On your smartphone, download the free Instagram App and then follow me at @thepointsguy. Upload your photo and be sure you include @thepointsguy and #greatseatmate in your caption so it is included as an official entry.

I will select my 5 favorite entries and announce them in a blog post and on the TPG Facebook page and finally as Instagram photos on Monday October 15, 2012. I will then crowdsource feedback on the entries through comments on the blog post, comments/shares on the Facebook posts and “Likes” on the Instagram photos. I’ll take all of that into consideration and announce the grand prize winner at 5pm EST on Tuesday, October 16. A runner-up will be selected in case the grand prize winner can’t attend the actual event and there will be other prizes for the other finalists.

Feel free to ask any questions here or Tweet me. Bottom line – be creative and have fun, and be sure to enter by tomorrow!
