Thursday Giveaway: Citi AAdvantage Concert Tickets - The Temptations in NY
Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here – Citi / AAdvantage Executive World Elite Mastercard
Today's Thursday Giveaway goes out to all you music lovers out there. The good folks at Citibank have offered me two tickets to an exclusive Citi Private Pass event in January that's sure to make any Motown fan swoon.
Like many of the other premium Citi credit cards, the Citi AAdvantage Executive World Mastercard - which I just got myself back in October when the bonus went up to 60,000 miles when you spend $5,000 in 3 months - offers cardholders exclusive access to events such as concerts, sports games and family events, and one of the upcoming musical concerts features The Temptations and the Four Tops.
Citi has given me two tickets to give away to one lucky reader for it, and the prize includes a complete evening of fun. The concert takes place Saturday, January 18, at the NYCB Theatre in Westbury, New York. Citi Private Pass guests can check in at 5:30pm and enjoy a private cocktail reception then a backstage tour of the theater as well as a meet & greet with The Temptations before the show starts at 8:00pm.
It sounds like an awesome evening, and I know there are a lot of folks out there who would enjoy it, so to enter my contest, here's what you need to do. By 5pm ET on Monday, December 23, write a comment on this post telling me two things:
1. What's your favorite Four Tops or Temptations song.
2. What's your favorite Citi AAdvantage credit card perk - it could be the 10% mileage refund on award redemptions (up to 10,000 miles per calendar year), the reduced-price mileage awards, the elite-qualifying miles you can earn on the Citi AAdvantage Executive World Mastercard, or anything else you like.
One entry per person is allowed, and we'll select the winner at random next week. If you win, you'll be responsible for getting yourself to/from the theater, and any incidental costs. The prize is just the tickets and access to the Citi Private Pass events.
Winners of the two $500 gift cards and two of their highest-tier Concierge level status valid through February 2015
Last week's Thursday Giveaway was for two $500 gift cards and Concierge status in Club Carlson. To enter, readers had to either Tweet me @thepointsguy and tell me about someone special in their life that you think deserves this gift, or to Upload a picture to Instagram with their entry. I got a lot of great responses and here are the two winners chosen at random.
A lot of people wanted to treat their kids, wives, husbands and friends to trips abroad, but I was surprised at how many dutiful kids wanted to treat their hardworking parents to a trip for anniversaries, or just to say thanks, including our Twitter winners, Mandy & Justin, who said: I'd love a chance to treat my parents to a trip to Aruba for their 33rd anniversary!
On Instagram, @lizziev18_ posted a picture of herself and two friends in some stylish lederhosen saying "#tpgcarlsongiveaway I'd take a #friendcation to the Park Inn Munich so we can go to the real #Oktoberfest! Prost!" I will definitely prost to that! Munich is a beautiful city and who better to attend crazy Oktoberfest with than a couple of good friends?
Thank you to everyone who participated and be sure to enter this week's contest!
