Free First-Class Trip Around the World for Two, Anyone?

Since noting the launch of American’s Deal 30—30 deals in as many days, to mark the 30th anniversary of the AAdvantage program—the deals haven’t been especially blog-worthy.

Yesterday’s deal, however, is a sweepstakes with a prize that makes it well worth the 20 seconds it takes to enter.

Offer Details

Through May 27, AAdvantage members can enter American’s “Around the World” sweepstakes for a chance to win a first-class around-the-world trip for two on any combination of airlines participating in the oneworld global alliance, anchored by American and British Airways. The trip may include up to sixteen flight segments but cannot exceed 50,000 miles per passenger.

Travel must be ticketed by December 31, 2011, and completed by December 31, 2012.

And, presumably to prevent any unseemly hanky panky, “Winner’s guest must be 18 years of age or older if not a member of winner’s immediate family …”

To enter, visit the Deal 30 landing page and click on the May 9th deal.

Deal or No Deal

The prize is a true once-in-a-lifetime trip. Your odds of winning are minuscule.

Are you feeling lucky?
