New Jauntaroo Game: Bragging Rights & Wished For Sights!! Free Gift Cards!
We have a fun new game for this week. One of the cool features on Jauntaroo is the ability to Select “Where You Have Been” and “Where You Want To Go.” Just browse the Jauntaroo Destinations and go to the Details Page to find the Box to click “Been There” or “Want To Go.” Each person that does so this week will receive a FREE AMAZON GIFT CARD!
Details: Value will range from $1 to $10 with random winners selected each day to win $10 gift cards. You must select at least 5 places you’ve been and 5 places you want to visit (but come on, who hasn’t been to at least 5 places before?). Promotion ends Friday, February 3. Only unique user email accounts will be accepted (i.e. no variations of emails that all feed into 1 account. Yes, we know about the gmail tricks :) ). Entrance gift cards will be sent to email accounts listed on registered Jauntaroo accounts within 1 week of the contest end date. At least 10 destinations must be listed as either “Been There” or “Want To Go.” Most users will receive $1 gift cards. Random users will be selected daily to receive $10 gift cards. Contest void where prohibited.
It’s Wednesday and we feel like playing a game. Is anyone else in the mood? Here’s the deal. To highlight the ULTRA COOL Search Feature on jauntaroo.com, we will list the top 3 destinations that come up when a certain combination of search terms are entered. For example, when you enter Romantic, Beach and Scuba/Snorkeling, your top 3 results are Bora Bora, Bali and Seychelles. We will tell you the top 3 results, and you must figure out which search terms must be used. Make sense? We will give a $5 Gift Card to the first, 25th and 50th person that emails the correct answers to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a registered user on our site, we will double it to a $10 gift card. Good Luck!!

To celebrate the start of December, we thought we’d play a little game. On some of the Destination pages of Jauntaroo we have hidden little Easter Eggs. No, not actual hard-boiled eggs, but secret words hidden in the description paragraphs. These words may move around to different pages throughout the contest, so search carefully! You will see the words “Easter Egg:” then the secret word listed.
Log on to Jauntaroo and search. If you can find all 3 Easter Eggs, send us an email at email@example.com with the secret words in the subject line. Every single person that identifies the 3 hidden words correctly will be sent an Amazon Gift Card worth up to $20*! You must be a Registered Jauntarista. Not signed up yet? Join and you’ll also be entered to win a trip to the Bahamas! Easter Egg Contest ends at 11:59pm EST on Friday, December 2.
Happy December and Happy Hunting!!
*Gift Cards Will range in value between $1 and $20. One lucky winner will receive a $20 Amazon Gift Card. Odds of winning depend on the number of entries. Good Luck!
St. Thomas - Caribbean Flair, Island Hospitality, No Passport Required
Nestled in the heart of the Caribbean lies an island about as beautiful and entertaining as you will find anywhere else in the world. St. Thomas is part of the United States Virgin Islands which means a couple of things. 1) Beautiful year-round beach weather and 2) No need for a passport!
While in St. Thomas, you can enjoy a number of spectacular activities. Here are just a few suggestions:
1) Day Trip to St. John Island - Just a 20 minute ferry-ride away, most of this gorgeous island is a US National Park with protected forest areas. This means lots of open, natural space and not too many people. Trunk Bay is believed by many to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
2) Sunset from the Mountain Top - Take a taxi to the top of the mountain on the east side of St. Thomas. The view at sunset is simply magnificent.
3) Snorkel or Scuba - The water surrounding St. Thomas are a crystal-blue color and offer amazing diving. Many coves along the coast offer calm waters and perfect visibility.
Check out the St. Thomas page on Jauntaroo and learn more about why this island is a must-add to anyone’s Travel Bucket List.
