The fourth largest wireless carrier in the United States announced the Sprint Getaway Giveaway, its latest sweepstakes boasting a grand prize of 100,000 American Airlines AAdvantage miles. The Overland Park-based company said that its new contest was organized to reward its customers for their loyalty. While the Sprint Getaway Giveaway only has a single grand prize, 20 less fortunate but still somewhat fortunate Sprint customers will win Samsung's Galaxy J3 Emerge handset. In addition to the free American Airlines AAdvantage miles mentioned above, the winner of the grand prize will also receive one Galaxy J3 Emerge, as well as $2,000 in cash.
Those interested in participating in the Sprint Getaway Giveaway can do so by visiting sprint.com/getaway where they'll be able to enter the competition once per day until Friday, March 10. In addition to those daily entries, participants can earn extra entries by following @Sprint or @SprintLatino on Twitter and tweeting about the contest using the #SprintGetawaySweepstakes hashtag. The company said that the tweets should revolve around the countries in which participants would like to travel to using their free American Airlines AAdvantage miles. As expected, the giveaway is open to all existing Sprint customers and doesn't require them to make any purchases. The winners will be drawn on March 15 while the company will attempt to contact them to claim their prizes around March 22, Sprint revealed. Overall, the rules of the competition are similar to all of the recent sweepstakes organized by the company like the Snow Place Like Home giveaway that took place in December.
