Grand Prize #1

Crack out that bucket list and start living the life of your dreams with this $1 million cash to spend as you want!

Grand Prize #2

You’ll have TWO chances to join the millionaire club! Grand Prize #2 is also $1 million cash. 

Grand Prize #3 

Here comes the paradox of choice: would you rather a 2018 BMW X4 M40i (valued at $106,178) PLUS $20,000 CASH OR a 2018 BMW M550i xDRIVE SEDAN ($107,598) PLUS $10,000 CASH OR just take $100,000 cash?

Winner will choose one prize option; other options will not be awarded.

Grand Prize #4 

Or maybe a 2018 BMW 440i xDrive Cabriolet is more your speed? You can always grab the $90,000 cash option instead if it’s not.

Grand Prize #5 

The Galapagos are an archipelago of volcanic islands off the coast of Ecuador. They were made famous by Charles Darwin, who discovered in its landscape a plethora of unique flora and fauna which had a great impact on his Theory of Natural Selection. Follow Darwin’s footsteps on a twelve day, eleven night trip of a lifetime for four to the Galapagos Islands and Ecuador! You’ll start the trip off right with VIP airport lounge access, and luxury accommodations including a five-night stay on a swanky 16-passenger ship. Butterfield & Robinson, the trip provider, will supply you with guides and experts to make your experience of this UNESCO World Heritage Site informative and enriching. Plus, have fun snorkelling, kayaking and hiking and exploring the charming and picturesque Ecuadorian capital of Quito. Meals and airfare included. This trip is valued at $75,000.

Or, you can choose to take $70,000 cash instead.

Grand Prize #6 

Machu Picchu is a 15th-century Inca citadel perched in a mountain range above the Sacred Valley in Peru. It could also be the next place you tell all your friends about if you’re the winner of this Grand Prize #6.  This wonder of the world will be yours to discover on a seven day, six night adventure for you plus three guests. This trip comes with the works: return airfare, luxury accommodations including a stay at the Belmond Lodge, meals, transport from rendezvous to drop-off, and the services of a B&R guide to round out your experience. You’ll have access to 104 km of the legendary Inca Trail, plus private tours and perks like an special dinner in the Inca Palace. 

Or, take $60,000 cash.

Grand Prize #7

“The Amalfi Coast.” Just saying it feels good. You won’t believe how much better it is in person until you’re strolling among the picturesque streets bursting with culture, with a backdrop of twinkling sapphire and sunshine. This stretch of Italian coastline along the Mediterranean is a UNESCO World Heritage site for good reason, and you and three guests could be spending six days if you’re the Grand Prize #7 winner. Return airfare, five-star accommodations (including stays at the Capri Tiberio Palace, the Palazzo Avino and Le Sirenuse), all breakfasts, four lunches and four dinners, transportation up and down the coast via private boats, and all transportation from rendezvous to drop-off.
