1st Prize:

80k Avianca Lifemiles + the cost of the required fees for the flights, enough for 2 round-trip tickets to much of Northern Europe or up to 6 domestic round-trip tickets.

2nd Prize:

32k Avianca Lifemiles + the cost of the required fees for the flights, enough for 2 round trip domestic tickets to all of the NE of the US, Chicago, and parts of the SE.

I go into the details and rules about their use here.


This year the 1st prize winner, 2nd prize winner, and 3rd prize winner will also get access to Wyndham Rewards. Used most effectively for hotels, you could save greater than $350/night with cash+points Wyndham Rewards, at a value per point of over 12 cents per point.
