JetBlue's Election Protection – Win a Flight Out of the Country if Your Guy Loses

JetBlue - Election Protection

JetBlue has just launched Election Protection 2012, a solution for all the loud mouths who are quick to threaten to ‘leave the country’ if their candidate doesn’t win.

Starting October 3, participants can choose their candidate and one of the eligible destination that JetBlue flies. If your chosen candidate loses on November 6, your name will go into a draw to win 1 of 1,006 certificates for airfare from the US to one of the 13 eligible destinations in the Caribbean, Central America and Colombia. And yes, they were round-trip tickets, so you can fly home rested and relaxed after some quality time away from politics.

The data of both party choices and destination are tracked and displayed on the site at jetblueelectionprotection.com.

But remember my American friends, on November 6 get your butt out there and vote for real.

The Script Launch Geo-Social Concert Ticket Giveaway

Get Me to the Script

Fans of Irish rock band The Script can scoop up tickets to this week’s sold-out shows in London and Manchester by posting tweets containing #GetMeToTheScript.

Each tweet sent with the hashtag helps to reveal the location of the free tickets by magnifying a map on The Script’s Facebook page. The first fan to arrive at the location wins the tickets.

The giveaway is a great example of combining Twitter and Facebook to effectively promote and manage a small-scale social campaign; Twitter for it’s ability to amplify a message and a Facebook page app for a simple hosting solution.

‘Get Me to The Script’ was put together by Essence London.
