Has anyone gotten a free hotel voucher for 3 days and 2 nights from getawayfaq.com
I received it from some company that was giving out this voucher after spending x amount of $'s on their website.

So my question to you all is, has anyone ever heard of this company?
If yes, what are you experiences with them? Are they reliable? Do you need to do a timeshare of sorts? What type of hotel have you gotten. They only give you a number to call for reservatios after you have given them a $50 deposit. Does anyone have that number ?Thanks

Here are their frequently asked questions:

These are mostly restricted in a way that they make sure you are not taking this.
Actually these certificates of 2 days and 3 nights were sold lately at $2 each, I don't remember where I saw it. But it's definitely not worth a lot.
