Priority Club is running a weekly contest, they’ll give you photos and clues about a geographic location and you guess it to earn points.
Every week for the next 8 weeks, we’ll be highlighting a new mystery destination. Each day we’ll reveal more clues about the location — the sooner you guess correctly, the more points you’ll win!
Each Tuesday for eight weeks they’ll offer a new destination. If you guess correctly on the first day you earn 2000 Priority Club points. Each successive day they add a photo and clue, and the points reward goes down — 1500 points on the second day (Wednesday), 1000 points on the third day (Thursday), and 500 points on the fourth day (Friday).
There’s also a weekly drawing for one winner to receive points or points and an iPad or camera.
The frustrating thing is that they don’t tell you right away whether your guess was correct. There’s also likely to be some ambiguity, I’m not sure how they’re going to tell exactly what is correct and what isn’t — they ask for a specific location, it’s not multiple choice but rather you have to enter your answer as text. And it’s possible then that people will describe the same correct location differently. So this could easily be a bit of a mess.
The Flyertalk thread on the promotion will be interesting for sure. The consensus guess of the first week’s clues seems to be Arikok National Park, Aruba. But I can’t vouch with certainty that this is accurate.
This is open to residents of the US, Canada, and the UK only.
It’ll be annoying but I’ll probably keep checking the Flyertalk thread weekly, just entering whatever the consensus guess is, and wind up with a few points as a result. But then I’m also the guy ‘virtually’ checking into the nearest Holiday Inn to my office (while sitting at my desk…) via foursquare and TopGuest for 50 Priority Club points per day.
