To celebrate it’s 70th birthday, Heathrow Airport is running a promo in which everyone who enters will win a prize of some sort, simply by submitting a brief (or not-so-brief) Heathrow-related story. The key point is, as Heathrow say, “the better your story, the more spectacular the gift you’ll get to unwrap“.
Now I have to say my story was pretty uninspiring, but consider it a service to the community to test how this promotion worked. Obviously it can take as long as you want it to, depending on how seriously you want to gun for the bigger prizes. I raced through and completed it in about 2 minutes.
Interestingly, they ask for your Heathrow Rewards number at the end, so I’d suggest that there may be a few handfuls of Heathrow Rewards points being dished out (based on the quality of my story, I’m expecting to get about three).
What prizes are included?
Thousands, apparently. Including:
- Qantas flights to Sydney
- Food at Heathrow
- Heathrow Rewards points
- Gift vouchers for Heathrow shops
- Heathrow Express Business First return ticket
- A ride with the driver on the Heathrow Express
- Various cosmetics
So, take your time or don’t, as the case may be. I do suggest you enter though, as I reckon the lower end prizes will probably be worth the 2 minutes it takes to add a brief story (although I may stand corrected…)
In terms of the timescales, Heathrow confirms as follows:
- over the next two weeks, we’ll read all the stories and select a great present for you.
- Then ta-dah, two or three weeks after sharing your story, you’ll find out which gift you’ll be unwrapping!
