CET "choose your escape" full board prize question

I filled my full board today and have won a "choose your trip" prize or $1000 cash...

They gave a list of 35 "experience trips" and says I need to choose top 5 and they will select it for me based on availability.

Most are for 2 nights...

As if I am getting on a plane and flying cross county I want to have more than 2 days.....

Has anyone else won this and if so were you able to extend your stay with comps etc?

Any other tips about what to pick if go for a trip?

Thanks!

you will get a 1099 for this..... most likely with a very high number that they consider the SRP.

Do yourself a favor and take the $1000 cash option.

As C-SRT8 suggests, “Do yourself a favor and take the $1000 cash option.”

We won the instant prize trip to Vegas on April 20-22 with airfare available up to $1500. I asked if we could stay an extra day since the airfare would be cheaper but they said no - only the days listed. I had to go through their travel people.

This trip did not have an option available for cash - only the trip/concert or not. I agree with everyone else. You could book your own flight for 1000 and you could probably get any CET property to comp your nights.

If you go - I vote for Lake Tahoe during the summer.

Charlie - have you got a 1099 from CET yet?

I have received the 1099 misc. Got it about a week ago.

I chose the $3000 in visa gift cards by the way..

Thanks Charlie.

Maybe I will get ours this upcoming week.

I am sure those gift cards were appreciated.
