July 4th Swag Mystery Box Giveaway

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.”

Other than toiletries that always seem to be forgotten afterwards, I don’t believe I’ve gotten any travel swag.
