    As a 3rd generation of bringing up kids (presently bringing up two grandchildren) I would love to win so I can visit Norway which otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to go.

    • admin June 17, 2013 at 6:39 am

      good luck!

  11. Diane Salyer June 17, 2013 at 7:12 am

    My favorite loyalty program is SPG – because of the great cash & points option.

    • admin June 17, 2013 at 10:00 am

      Honestly Diane, me too!

  12. Sherry Carrier June 17, 2013 at 9:01 am

    • admin June 17, 2013 at 10:00 am

      I have heard some amazing things about Norway! Good luck!

  13. kolpin June 17, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    Southwest is my favorite, b/c it’s so easy to build up enough miles for rewards!

    • admin June 17, 2013 at 2:09 pm

      Yes, southwest has a good program, I haven’t used it in a while, since I mainly fly international, but would use it for positioning flights if needed.

  14. Erin at The World Wanderer June 17, 2013 at 4:39 pm

  15. Michael Kleiner June 17, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    Dying to get back to my second home and family. It’s been 16 years on my honeymoon. Want to show my children. Not of Norwegian descent, my family lived in Oslo for a year in 1969-70 when I was 11 and went to a Norwegian school. Returned several times as an adult, reunited with friends, gaining new experiences. Four decade relationship became a book.

    • admin June 17, 2013 at 9:57 pm

      wow! I wish you luck Michael!

  16. Kat June 18, 2013 at 2:31 pm

    My favorite loyalty program is IHG/PriorityClubRewards because they offer great giveaways and points never expire.

    • admin June 18, 2013 at 6:29 pm

      Cool! you will have to teach me about that program, as I don’t use it too often!

  17. Brian Smith June 19, 2013 at 3:27 am

    Southwest Rapid Rewards is my favorite…with an ailing parent I fly Dallas-Denver frequently and earn free flights quickly…plus, their customer service is truly top-notch!

    • admin June 19, 2013 at 12:19 pm

      they do have a great program!

  18. Alan June 19, 2013 at 1:35 pm

    Why do you send these contests offers to people/counties who are ineligible to receive when you see the details in the offer?

    Cannot anyone detect the valid countries of origin?

    Wastes my time and angers me to be excluded from the contest while being included as a possible customer.

    • admin June 19, 2013 at 4:02 pm

      Alan, how did you get notice of this sweepstakes? If it was through email, I apologize, but the program I use is no sophisticated enough to realize you are in the UK and that the contest is for USA citizens over the age of 18. Sorry:(

  19. kay Dougherty June 19, 2013 at 3:15 pm

    When I clicked to follow your RSS feed I got a message back saying there isn’t a feed. Is there one? If so it may need to be linked to the Facebook entry.

    • admin June 19, 2013 at 4:01 pm

      Just sent this issue over to PromoSimple, the company running this sweepstakes for me to see if they can correct the issue. Will let you know here soon.

      • admin June 19, 2013 at 4:13 pm

        Here is what the IT Promo Simple guy told me: “I used the link that you setup and that points to your RSS feed and everything seems to work properly. The RSS feed and Facebook items are and should be separate items.” He says it is all in proper working order when he tried it.

  20. Melissa Ruttanai June 19, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    I’ve never been to Norway before!! It would be amazing to win!! Plus IcelandAir is a great airline 🙂

    • admin June 19, 2013 at 5:44 pm

      Well, good luck then! I will be going in August!

  21. Nicole W June 19, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    My favorite is Priority Club Rewards, because your points never expire! I belong to a more expensive hotel chain loyalty program as well, but I always have to worry about my points expiring with them. Love Priority Club 🙂

    • admin June 19, 2013 at 7:04 pm

      Nicole, that is good to know! Good luck!

    • admin June 19, 2013 at 7:04 pm

      Nicole, that is good to know! Good luck!

  22. Annie of TravelShus June 19, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    great contest! I’ve always wanted to go to Norway but never had the chance. This looks amazing!

    • admin June 19, 2013 at 10:36 pm

      Good luck! I am going to Norway in August and I can’t wait!

    • admin June 19, 2013 at 10:38 pm

      Good luck! I am going in August and I can’t wait!

  23. Katherine Belarmino June 19, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    I’ve entered and I hope I win! I would love to go to Norway. I’ll put a link to this on my blog’s Facebook page too.

    • admin June 19, 2013 at 10:39 pm

      Hey, good luck and thank you for posting it on your blog! That would be great! Also, good luck on #5daysinQueensland! I want a Queensland vacation redo!

  24. Michelle June 19, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    I don’t have a favorite, but as mentioned, I do like Priority Club Rewards, because your points never expire.

    • admin June 19, 2013 at 10:40 pm

      Good luck!

  25. Joe K June 20, 2013 at 7:51 am

    My favorite loyalty program is American Airlines because it has been relatively easy to use.

    • admin June 20, 2013 at 6:43 pm

      I agree Joe, I really like American Airlines as a loyalty program.

  26. Sean June 20, 2013 at 11:28 am

    Priority Club Rewards are my favorite hotel loyalty program. Priority Club Reward points are great. There are family hotels everywhere, the hotels are by and large fairly new/renovated, and the minimum number of points required for redeemed nights are much lower and easier to find compared to other hotel loyalty programs. AAdvantage is my favorite airline program

    • admin June 20, 2013 at 6:46 pm

      Good to know, I need to look into Priority Club Rewards a little more, I use Club Carlson, Hyatt and SPG the most. I do like American Airlines as well.

  27. Theresa Nemeth June 20, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    My favorite loyalty program is Wyndham Rewards. I just seem to use it most often when traveling.

    • admin June 20, 2013 at 6:47 pm

      I don’t think I have ever used their program, you may need to teach me a few things about them!

  28. Delphia June 20, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    I would love to win this! My best friend moved to Norway with her husband and I’m excited to visit them someday. Miss her so much and would love to explore such a beautiful country!

    • admin June 20, 2013 at 6:48 pm

      Well, good luck then!

  29. Clare June 21, 2013 at 3:41 am

    I’ve always wanted to visit Norway!

    • admin June 21, 2013 at 10:06 am

      good luck!

  30. Andrew P June 23, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    My favorite is SPG because they make it so easy to redeem points!

    • admin June 24, 2013 at 8:59 am

      SPG is one of my favorite hotel loyalty programs too! Good luck.

  31. Barry June 24, 2013 at 9:59 am

    My favorite loyalty program is SPG because of the ease of redemption along with the great cash & points option.

    • admin June 24, 2013 at 11:53 am

      ditto!

  32. Jane June 24, 2013 at 10:03 am

    My favorite loyalty program is Membership Rewards

    • admin June 24, 2013 at 11:54 am

      that’s a great one too!

  33. Jennifer June 24, 2013 at 10:39 am

    Hilton is my favorite b/c I get points with my c. card and there’s one nearly everywhere.

    • admin June 24, 2013 at 11:54 am

      I will give you that. There are a lot of nice Hilton properties!

  34. Andy O. June 24, 2013 at 10:47 am

    My favorite is SPG because they make it so easy to redeem points

    • admin June 24, 2013 at 11:55 am

      Me too, and I am getting ready to book with SPG right now! good luck.

  35. Stephanie June 24, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    Love all the loyalty programs. Wish I could travel more to earn more rewards!

    • admin June 24, 2013 at 4:32 pm

      Stephanie, learn to earn rewards without traveling so you can travel! Read, read, read all the points blogs. Start with First2Board and BoardingArea.com for the daily reads and then pick your favorites. It is a game that you will enjoy playing as the reward is travel.

  36. Anne C June 25, 2013 at 7:41 am

    My favorite loyalty program is Club Carlson for the free nights. I would love to visit Norway, and would also try to do a stopover in Iceland. That would be a dream come true.

    • admin June 25, 2013 at 9:09 pm

      I love Club Carlson too! Iceland and Norway will both be amazing places to visit!

  37. Marsha B June 26, 2013 at 10:13 am

    Marriott because you can get access to good deals on hotels around the world.

  40. Whitney Dupuis June 26, 2013 at 2:08 pm

    I am not sure what my favorite loyalty program would be as I am not a member of any, but hotel/airfare would seem the most “rewarding” I would think.

    • admin June 26, 2013 at 3:48 pm

      Ms. Whitney, time to read up on the latest loyalty programs so you can travel the world! It is a great way to decrease your costs or increase your traveling or both!

  41. Sheena Tatum June 26, 2013 at 2:16 pm
