Oktoberfest starts in a couple days and American Airlines and Lufthansa are celebrating.
American is offering 275,000 miles to the winner of their "Leder Posin’" Okotberfest contest. Simply take a picture of yourself, your friends, or even your pet posing in traditional German garb at a unique place, upload it on AA.com, and you will be entered into the contest.
Here’s some further details:
This year marks the 200th anniversary of Munich’s Oktoberfest. To commemorate the occasion, we’re having an Oktoberfest-themed photo contest, called Leder Posin’ and giving away 500,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® miles!
Now through October 15, 2010, upload a photo of yourself, friends or even pets posing in traditional German attire at AA.com/milestones. Pose at Alpine Village Oktoberfest, the Eiffel Tower, the Grand Canyon… heck, pose on a zebra if you want to.
Entries will be judged on overall awesomeness, so get creative because 10 finalists will each earn 25,000 AAdvantage miles and be eligible for the grand prize of 250,000 AAdvantage miles.
Whether you’re in Munich or Los Angeles, it’s time to celebrate Oktoberfest. So what are you waiting for? Whether you buy ’em, make ’em or fake ’em, grab your lederhosen and start posin’!
Upload your photos here.
Lufthansa is also celebrating Oktoberfest with a specially designed website featuring games and contests. One item that espeically caught my eye: if you book a flight to/from MUC with LH and check into the Oktoberfest festivities with Foursquare, LH will give you a €20 electronic voucher.
See you in Munich!
