Novotel is celebrating Disney’s new movie, “Muppets Most Wanted” with a fun promotion.
They’ve hidden over 1,000 plush Kermits at participating Novotels in Australia, and if you find one of the long-limbed green guys in your room between April 6 and May 21, 2014 he is yours to keep. Plus, you’ll win one of a thousand prizes such as a $50 Food & Beverage voucher, movie passes, a Muppets DVD, etc.
According to the contest details, there will be two winners per day at each of the participating hotels. One Kermit be placed in a guest room, and the other winning room number will be drawn at Reception at noon.
There will be 46 total prizes awarded at each participating hotel, with specific prizes allocated for each day. If the movie passes for a family of four interest you, they will only be given away on Sunday April 6 and Saturday April 19, 2014.
There’s also an interesting line item in the Terms & Conditions –
“e. $500 Accor Gift Cards – 12 months validity at Australian, New Zealand and Fiji hotels. All transport and ancillary costs are not included in the prize and are the responsibility of the Prize Winner. Travel to and from the winner’s home to the accommodation that is booked within 12 months to redeem the $500 Accor Gift Card is the responsibility of the winner. Visit www.accorgiftcards.com.au for full terms and conditions of use.”
Even though this isn’t elaborated on anywhere, I am guessing that a $500 Accor gift card will be a grand prize!
I think this is a creative promotion, and was disappointed to find that it is only open to Australian residents and not to those passing through. But, there are often promotions open only to US residents so it gives the Aussies a turn.
