For example, let’s say Sally Baker is referred to getaroom.com by a friend named John Smith. Sally would post the following: “I was referred by John Smith.” John Smith is then entered for a chance to win. If Sally Baker in turn refers Brian Jones to the website, Brian’s comment would read as follows, “I was referred by Sally Baker.” Sally Baker is then entered for a chance to win.
Each participant need only post the name of his or her referrer once.
The contest will run through 11:59 p.m. CT on August 31, 2010 and the winner will be announced September 1, 2010 via our Facebook page.
