Gourmet cuisine. A private suite. Showers at 38,000 feet. An onboard bar. Impeccable service. Showers. A dedicated first class lounge. Oh, and did we mention showers?

If these items don’t sound like they belong in the world of aviation, you’ve clearly never flown in the first class cabin of an Emirates plane. Fortunately, that can all change right now. Today is the final day to vote for the winners of the Readers’ Choice categories at the inaugural TPG Awards, and it’s also the last giveaway in our “10 Days of Travel” contest. One lucky reader will be selected for a round-trip flight in Emirates first class (or a one-way flight for two travelers), an experience that will make virtually every other plane ride you ever take feel downright pedestrian.

To enter, simply cast your vote at this link for the credit cards, airlines and hotel programs that you want to see honored at the live ceremony. You’ll need to sign in to your Google account — to ensure one vote per person — but as soon as you submit your ballot, you’ll automatically be entered to win. Five minutes of your time for a shot at hours of travel bliss seems like a solid trade (and of course, if you’ve already voted, rest assured that you’re also in the running for the grand prize).

But you must vote before midnight tonight, because the polls will automatically close at 11:59pm Eastern time. If this isn’t enough to motivate you, check out what you could miss out on by not voting:
