If you’re hankerin’ for a Big Gulp or a Slurpee, head over to your local 7-Eleven, (in the US only) but don’t forget to check-in with Foursquare and take advantage of the special. You just might win a trip to space. Yes that’s right, I said space… the final frontier and all that.
There are 21,000 prizes in total, starting with free tickets to the much anticipated Super8 for every 88th check-in. Every 88,888 check-in wins a zero-gravity experience and the grand prize for the person who checks-in the 888,888th time is a trip to sub-orbital space.
But even if you qualify for the grand prize, you may still be waiting. As the rules state “Space Adventures shall schedule the date of the Spaceflight as suborbital Spaceflight becomes available (including availability in terms of technical and governmental approvals).”
Unless the contest picks up steam over the last two-thirds of the month, Space Adventures won’t have to worry about giving away too many zero-gravity flights. The total Foursquare check-ins are under 23,0000 – well short of the 88,000 for even one of the ten flights to be awarded.
