You need a US address (or a friend/family member in America) to enter this Airbnb competition.
Airbnb’s usual approach to increase their client base has been to offer a signup bonus to new customers (currently £30 for new members). During past months Airbnb have also partnered with American Express to offer cashback on Airbnb stays and offered future credit incentives to business travellers. Airbnb have even partnered with a small selection of airlines (Delta, Qantas and Virgin America/Alaska), allowing guests to earn airline miles on Airbnb stays. Though Airbnb are running all of these different promotions it is still extremely rare to see an Airbnb competition.
Airbnb have now launched a competition where you can win a total of $5,000 credit to be used for future Airbnb accommodation bookings. The competition itself doesn’t appear to be well published, so you can expect a higher chance of winning. It does not appear on their site, and is only included in a small section of the first Airbnb magazine “Airbnbmag” which was officially unveiled on 23rd May 2017. The text is actually featured in a 1 inch square box on page 10 of the magazine stating “Enter for a chance to win a $5,000 Airbnb credit to be used for bookings”. This is so well hidden, and very under promotion, that you can expect a lower amount of competition entrants.
To enter the competition for a chance to win $5,000 Airbnb credit you just need to submit your name and address on the competition form. Terms of the competition actually state that you can make one entry per day per email address, and that multiple entries from the same email on the same day will be disqualified. Again I doubt that many read the terms of the Airbnb competition and therefore will only enter the competition once.
If you are interested you can also subscribe to airbnbmag, currently $15 for 6 issues. As these are physical magazines and not digital you will again need a US address. Digital editions coming soon.
Competition ends 31st August 2017.
