Travel lovers out there, it’s time to look up from that city guide and listen up. Samsonite has just launched a brand new competition online called Around the World in 80 Clicks. This is a game running though Facebook that asks you to send a virtual suitcase around the world, creating a chain of people and engaging the traveler found within us all. Inspired by the great novel, Around the World in Eighty Days, this online global game comes with a bit of an incentive attached. Not only are their opportunities to win Samsonite Cosmolite Spinner 55s, there’s also a chance to win a €5,000 travel voucher to plan the holiday of your dreams to any location on earth.
So here’s how you play…
First, sign into the application while logged onto your Facebook page. Then select four friends from around the world and send them each a virtual Samsonite Cosmolite suitcase. And if you also ‘like’ the Samsonite Facebook page from the mini-site, you will be given an additional four bonus suitcases to send to friends.
Once your friends accept the case on Facebook, the distance between you and your chosen friends will automatically be calculated and tracked as the bags are then forwarded on and on from there. Once the first suitcase is sent, you will have three weeks to try and create the longest chain in the world. An important point to remember – increasing the number of countries your suitcase visits will make your chain eligible to earn additional bonus miles/kilometers. The more miles, the more chances you have to win!
I’m sorry but this just sounds like too much fun!
