July 4th Swag Mystery Box Giveaway

Check out our Top Rewards Cards to boost your points earning and travel more!


In the spirit of US commercialism on July 4, I am giving away a mystery box of travel swag I have received on trips and at events. All are pieces slathered with corporate logos. Maybe you’ll receive something you like.

Box contains 4 items, estimated retail value $30.

Please share something about travel swag you have received, with a comment on this post by Sunday, July 07 at 23:59 EDT. One potential winner will be  selected at random and notified by email by Monday, July 08 at 23:59 EDT and posted here. A valid email address in the comment form is required to notify the potential winner who must respond to accept by Monday, July 15 at 23:59 EDT. Available to US entrants/addresses only.

*******************************

And the winner is #55, Jason, who wrote “BLUE chips on jetblue :) Once I forgot to bring my headphones, and they kindly gave me one for free. That was nice.”

When we flew from man-ord on bmi (rip), they were so nice and the flight was so pleasant (in coach) and they gave our daughter a little amenity kit with a miniature board game, a squishy toy airplane and some other fun stuff. That will always be top of my list. Unfortunately for AA, it’s also the standard to which I compare their crappy man-ord flight. bleh 🙁

Unfortunately I’m very skimpy on airline swag since I generally fly economy class, but I sure would like some!

My husband received a Skyteam t-shirt along with an amenity kit several years ago when he got stranded at ATL. Ever since then, I’ve been wanting t-shirts from all 3 major alliances. Maybe only a nerd like me would care 😉

Best item was clear, reusable zippered 1 liter pouch from SAS – perfect for the liquids for putting in the bin at TSA security. They don’t give those out anymore, but was very practical.

Don’t think of this as “swag” per se, but I bring home soap from every hotel from every trip. Since I have been traveling for work the last 15 yrs, we have not purchased a bar of soap and end up giving half of it to my in-laws (who haven’t had to purchase any for 15 yrs either. Silly, I know….as if soap really costs that much. It’s just a game/habit/???

Not sure this counts, but from the Travel and Adventure show every year I pick up free used playing cards given away by casinos that have booths there. I don’t gamble or even play cards so I’ve used them for white elephant gifts. (Unlike 3/4 of the bag tags and other random junk I pick up there and then sits in my house until I throw it all away before the next year’s show.)
