Thousands of you entered in our “Not Just a Plane" promotion by creating a trip with at least three booking confirmations.
As you may remember, we launched this promotion to mark the 3,000+ booking sites now supported by TripIt, and to remind travelers to send us all the reservations from your trips, including restaurants, concerts, and more.
Apparently, we were preaching to the choir! 66% of the total reservations forwarded to TripIt during the contest were “not just a plane” – led by hotels and car rentals.
So without further ado, congratulations to Sara of Prescott Valley, Arizona on being the proud winner of our “Not Just a Plane” promotion, and a $500 AMEX gift card.
Here are a few words from our big winner:
“I travel frequently for work and TripIt is a lifesaver! Before a trip, I used to have to create an itinerary using Excel, which involved finding all my email reservations, and then, flipping back and forth between them and my spreadsheet. I've been using TripIt for about a year and it has streamlined the process for me. It is so easy to forward my email reservations and have TripIt put it all together for me in an itinerary. It saves me so much time! Also, I love the TripIt app for Android. I no longer have to worry about printing out my reservations or directions, it's all available in the palm of my hand!"
Sara, we hope you can put the $500 towards a relaxing leisure trip.
For everyone else, remember to forward all your reservations to email@example.com. We can handle it!
