Maldives Chabad Raffle
« on: July 18, 2019, 01:45:14 PM »
Anyone else entering? Seems much better for me than Antarctica raffle as it's for a shorter time and there's date flexibility. Any catch?

You're like those folks that tell travel agents:

"I need a flight for 3 passengers on June 17 in Business. Can you get me prices?"

How so? I'm just trying to find out if anyone's spoken to them and found that actually taking the trip due to availability is not so simple or has significant additional costs.

For example - is there a total price cap on what they'll pay? Is it tied to a specific airline's award inventory etc?

...it may help to provide a link, picture, brochure, bulletin board, selfie, something to let us know what you're talking about, like the folks who don't provide a date of a travel :)

No catch, great opportunity and decent odds. (@EJB may argue about the odds...)

Is there a minimum number of tickets that will be sold? Didn't see anything about that.

Also, the flights are paid w points but at the standard level and the hotel is cash?

If itís being raffled by a charity, chances are the odds arenít great. That being said, youíre donating to a charity and have a chance at dojng something aspirational in the process. Iíd participate if I hadnít just come back from MLE...

@CountValentine  I hope youíre buying a $hitload of tickets.

Always expect the max in your math. If they donít sell the Max, chabad can always buy the remainder 😂.
