Giveaway: Ticket to Frequent Traveler University, September 27-29

Somehow I overlooked this email, but Taryn¬†won’t be able to make it to Frequent Traveler University in two weeks and is looking to offer a free ticket to anyone who can make use of it. We’re going to give it away as fast as possible to make sure the winner can make plans to go to Tampa for the weekend of September 28-29 (most people show up for a reception on September 27). Learn more about FTU from my review of the last event in Tysons Corner.

Just make a comment here about one thing you want to learn at FTU this year if you get to go. Make your comment by 9 PM PT tonight and I’ll announce the winner on Wednesday.
