Reston, VA – June 6, 2011 – Do you consider yourself the Ultimate Road Trip Warrior? Do you know exactly what to pack and who you will bring when you hit the open road this summer? Is there music or snacks you must have during the long drive? Family and friends you can’t vacation without? Wirefly (www.wirefly.com), the Internet’s leading authorized retailer of cell phones and cell phone plans, today announced the launch of its Ultimate Road Trip Warrior Contest to reward its fans for sharing their traveling prowess!
From June 6, 2011 to July 1, 2011, people can go to Wirefly’s Facebook page and submit a photo displaying their must-have road trip gear for a chance to win an assortment of prizes designed to help them reach their destinations this summer. Prizes include gas cards, airline tickets and BlackBerry™ PlayBook tablets.
“With the surge in gas prices this year and summer heating up, Wirefly not only wants to help our loyal fans get to their vacation destinations faster and cheaper, we also want to ensure that they are entertained and stay connected along the way,” said Andy Zeinfeld, CEO of Simplexity, Wirefly’s parent company. “Gas cards and airline tickets are great for families on a budget and the PlayBook tablet is the perfect companion for long trips- whether traveling by plane, train or automobile. The device is ultra portable and super convenient. And not only will it keep travelers entertained with music and movies for hours, but with its superior operating system and uncompromised web experience, it can help travelers quickly find cheap gas prices, great places to eat, and local attractions along the way.”
