Tell A Friend Program:

Upon successful submission of an individual entry, you will be directed to the “after sign-up page” where you will have the option to Share With Friends and receive a free entry if any of them sign up, using a uniquely-generated bitly link (“share-with-a-friend link”). The share-with-a-friend link may be distributed to your friends via email, via Facebook or via Twitter. The share-with-a-friend link must be used by your friend to ensure your referral credit is reflected in the Sweepstakes. 

Each person that you refer by email will receive an email notifying him or her about the Sweepstakes. For each referral of a friend with a valid email address, you will be given one (1) additional entry into the Sweepstakes during the Promotion Period. You may only refer persons with whom you have an existing relationship. If the friend objects to the use of their email address, they can OPT-OUT by notifying the Contest Sponsor NextGreatTrip by email at info@nextgreattrip.com, opting them out of further communications.
