Announcing the “Rich Life Giveaway”

Last year, I hosted a bunch of giveaways as an experiment: I was trying to find out if they worked to get more attention for IWT and to change IWT readers’ behavior.

As usual, some of it worked, some of it didn’t.

Can you guess which one was the most/least popular contest of last year?

  • $1,001 cash for you, no strings attached
  • $1,001 cash for you and your partner
  • Two roundtrip tickets anywhere in the US
  • One month’s payment of your rent or mortgage
  • Two nights in a luxury hotel anywhere in the world
  • Several iPhone 5s

Answers:

  • Most popular: = Two roundtrip tickets anywhere
  • Least popular: Two nights in a luxury hotel anywhere in the world

Honestly, I have no idea why this is. I’ve always said that money is only a small part of living a rich life, so it makes sense that the flights (freedom, flexibility) were popular. But why the hell didn’t you guys want luxury hotels? Do we have a bunch of ballers who already stay at the St. Regis wherever you travel?

If it were me, that would have been my #1 choice!! But then again, I am a little weird about luxury hotels.

All in all, I liked doing these contests. They got us all thinking about what a Rich Life means, they led to record comments/growth, and they let me give back to the IWT community.

Since 2013 is the year of Taking Control, I’m going to be doing more of these. In fact, to give people a taste of living a Rich Life — like so many successful IWT students now have — I’m making this a regular feature of IWT.

Every month, I’m holding a simple contest with a chance to win something cool. Hopefully I won’t have any duds like the hotel example above.

To start it off, I’m giving away another two roundtrip tickets to anywhere in the US.

There’s no expiration date. Use them this month, at the holidays, for your honeymoon, whenever.

Having given it 30 seconds of thought, there are a couple of possible reasons people were more interested in the plane tickets vs. the hotel nights. The first is purely financial. You can go cheap on hotels if you want (or visit someone and stay for free), but there’s a limit to how cheaply you can get from Point A to Point B, so if you want to minimize out-of-pocket costs, you’re better off going with the plane tickets. This approach might not max out the pure dollar value you realize by winning–depending on where you go, the hotel might… Read more »

I would’ve thought that the cash is the most popular one, since you can do whatever you want with it. But I guess airline tickets are expensive nowadays and worth more than the cash price?

Actually, now that I’ve looked at the list again, several iPhone 5s might be worth more. Another question is, once I get the price, do I get to sell it for cash?

Kelvin Kao
3 years 5 months ago

I totally used “price” in place of “prize” in the last comment. Perhaps I should hire someone to proofread my comments. Hm… no.

Hey Ramit, how do you know if we are US citizens?

It’s obvious, where’s the excitement in 2 nights in a luxury hotel ‘anywhere’ if you don’t have the dollars to fly ‘anywhere’?!
If I was cash-strapped, I’d much rather have as many days/nights in cheap accommodation in an exotic location as I could afford, than 2 nights in the 5star down the road……

I love that you are doing these contests. This is the first one I’ve signed up for. You obviously know more about this than me, but I give my opinion for you to consider ways to (possibly) improve. Personally, I am not inclined to share the link after I submit an entry. I don’t mind sharing stuff on FB/Twitter, but I want it to be relevant and interesting, not spammy. And it seems like the link I would be sharing just says to put your name/email for a chance to win a roundtrip flight – there’s no trust established (other… Read more »

Jason

I’d either take my kids to go meet my grandparents and extended family on the other side of the country, or take my wife on a vacation away from the kids. Which one probably depends on how much of a break we happen to need when we decide to use the tickets.

I would fly from the West Coast to the East Coast with my partner, because it’s getting so expensive! Or maybe fly my parents out to me, since I’m not at the point that I can treat them like that on my own. But, I love the idea of the person who said Alaska above!! So maybe there!

I’d fly to some yummy retreat on the coast of Cali with my mommy. OR

Allison

I would go back to Sedona, AZ in a heartbeat! It is in the golden ratio and I am very energy sensitive. The hydrogen in those red rocks helps reset DNA and the energy vortices (or vortexes as they call them there) make one feel awesome. The trees even grow in a spiral! I would take my very dear Grand Aunt who has just been diagnosed with cancer and has the most positive attitude-she is my inspiration!

I’d move to London. MOVE. I will always regret it if I didn’t. The other ticket would either be a visit home or for my mother to visit me. 🙂

I’d fly myself and my long-distance boyfriend, who lives in the exotic land of Indiana (yes, Indiana, not India – although Himachal Pradesh would be a nice change of pace), for a vacation hiking around the tide pools in Washington state. I’m trying to agressively pay down my only debt (student loans) while still investing in Roth IRA, etc, and this would be a nice reward.

First, thank you Ramit for this giveaway and it is very interesting to see where people will go, who with and their thoughts and/or reasons. Like many, the first place that came to mind was Hawaii and take my husband. We will be able to enjoy the beauty of the islands, the ocean, the mountains, the coffee and the pineapples while still being connected and managing our “4-Hour Work Week” goals.

Danielle

Definitely Hawaii! I live on the East coast so it would be a great value 🙂

I’d take my wife on a trip to New York where she was born, but she hasn’t been back in a long time to see her family. Then we’d act like tourists because I’ve never been.

…. or we’d scrap that plan and live it up in Vegas or Hawaii!

I’d go to Las Vegas because I’ve never been there and I want to see the city that figures so prominently in the movies and fiction books that I love. I would take my friend Jim because he’s been going through a rough patch over the past few years and deserves a *real* vacation as opposed to a “busman’s holiday”.

Susi

It depends.

My first reaction was Hawaii with my boyfriend.

However, I spend the holidays with my family every year, and if it has become increasingly more difficult for me to afford going, so believe it or not, flying to Minnesota in the middle of winter trumps Hawaii if it means I get to spend the holidays with my family. 🙂

Elizabeth K

With the two round trip tickets I would take my Mom on a vacation. Recently she has been under a lot of stress with my Grandmother being hospitalized and her cat becoming ill. She cannot drive so she would never go on a big trip without me. We would probably go across the Country to Seattle, Las Vegas, or Los Angeles.

We haven’t been on a trip since we had to (sadly) bid farewell our study abroad phrase in college, and it’s time to celebrate being debt free along with a 38% raise here at my first “big girl” job. WOOP.

Kim

I’d fly round trip from Miami to LA. I live in Latin America and my parents live in Southern California. Getting home to see them is a financial expense I can’t afford too often. Flying to Miami is okay but it is the various domestic legs that can really add up.

I’d go to San Francisco with my husband! It’s our favorite city and we tend not to spend money traveling because we’re working on building up an emergency fund and trying to contribute more to retirement savings. We could use our AmEx Starwoods points to get free nights at a cool hotel for a really low-cost, fun vacation seeing sights around the city and visiting our numerous family members in the Bay area!

My fiancee and I are planning a trip to Redondo Beach, California this fall to attend a wedding, then road trip it out to Buttermilks to go rock climbing, and then up to San Francisco to visit two of my wonderful friends from college and study abroad, respectively. Of course, it’s just an idea right now – pending finances – so having the flights taken care of would be amazing!

I’d fly to Hawaii with my friend Jess who might be teaching at a pro-social pre-school co-op in south Kona.

Or I’d fly to Hawaii with you – I’m pretty sure I’d learn a lot more on that flight than I would in most other situations I’d find myself in.

I would either fly to Denver or Montreal to hang with my BFF (depending on where she is at that time) or take my sister to Puerto Rico. We had an amazing time there a few years ago, but unfortunately we both had to work so did not get to enjoy and explore the city as much as we’d liked.

Deb

We’re from Texas, but live in Maryland right now. My son may want to go to college in the Seattle area and we might use the trip to fly out there and check out the schools and see the sites! It (flying) would be too cost-prohibitive and driving would be time-prohibitive.

. . . Another reason folks might not have chosen 2 nights in a luxury hotel . . . I don’t spend much time in my hotel/motel room, because I’m out doing. Just sleep, maybe read a little before bed, and do work when I have to. All I need is a clean room, comfortable bed, hot shower . . . the rest doesn’t matter. I would fly, twice if I could, to spend time with my folks in another state. If both tickets have to be the same at the same time, my husband and I would fly out… Read more »

I would take my wife to Maui. We have a baby, and related expenses have limited vacation plans to last-minute, driving-distance, short weekend deals. But trying to get away that way just leaves us never far away from the next workweek and the stresses of life. It would be a real luxury to be able to fly to Hawaii with her and really get away for a bit.

I would go to machu pichu in Peru. Of course I would take my beautiful wife and mother of our son. She definitely deserves it. It looks really beautiful to be up so high atop of the mountains where this community of people called home. How do you even build up there. Truly amazing.

I’d fly to New York, on two separate trips with my husband (both tickets for me!). He gets to go there for client meetings every few months and can expense it to his company. I’d like to go get my city fix, as well as visit my sister who lives in Manhattan. My husband and I adopted three kids almost two years ago, and the thing I miss the most about my old life is travel. I think I could convince the grandparents to come stay with the kids for a few days so I could go whoop it up… Read more »

I would take my boyfriend to New York. He loves coffee, especially NY coffee. I want to go there for the show “Sleep No More.” Heard about it from a friend, and it sounds amazing: a unique, immersive experience where you follow the actors around, or do whatever the hell you want. You can return to the show again and again and have a different show everytime. Other than that, I’m curious about the people, whether they’re really as rude as they’re said to be 😉 and if the traffic is that insane. Oh, and Times Square!

Honest to goodness? I’d take airline tickets over a luxury hotel stay because a luxury hotel stay means nothing to me if I can’t GET to the luxury hotel. It would be silly to go to the closest major city, and I wouldn’t have had airfare to get somewhere special.

The airline tickets, on the other hand, can help me to plan a budget-friendly trip ANYWHERE, with or without luxury. Yea!

I’d use it to see friends I never see anymore (who happen to live in fun places). So, depending on who is free/time of year, hello San Fran, or Vegas, or Salt Lake City, or hey, maybe a ski trip in Montana!

As for who I’d bring…any friend who is around and up for an adventure!!

San Francisco with my husband. A few years ago we started a winery. My husband is the main wine maker, and travels to wine country often to monitor our wine; usually a 48 hour turn around. That’s a tough trip from Cleveland, OH, especially if the flight is not direct or because we pay out the wazoo for a last minute flight when the grapes have ripened. The round trip air fare for 2 would free up funds to permit us both to go and stay a few days. We would then not just tend to our business but experience… Read more »

Hawaii. I want to start a smoothie stand on the beach there, but the cost of flying exceeds the cost of everything else, and I’m not in a position where I can afford to go there, try my business idea, and still be able to fly back if it sours.

I think that the hotel giveaway wasn’t successful because luxury accommodations are useless when you don’t have the means to get there.
