Yapta Announces "Nine Months of Paradise by Marriott" Sweepstakes

New sweepstakes from Yapta.com will award a 5-night, 6-day stay every month for nine months at Marriott & Renaissance Caribbean & Mexico Resorts

SEATTLE - June 5, 2009 - Yapta.com, an online travel shopping service that monitors airfare and hotel prices for travelers, today announced a new sweepstakes giveaway in which a different Grand Prize winner will be selected each month for nine consecutive months to receive a 5-night, 6-day stay at a Marriott & Renaissance Caribbean and Mexico Resort. Four First Prize Winners will also be selected each month to receive a 1-year Clear Pass, the fast pass for airport security, and ten Second Prize Winners will receive a Starbucks gift card.

The "Nine Months of Paradise by Marriott" Sweepstakes promotion will provide each participant with up to 25 chances to win based on the number of flights "tracked" for fare drops using Yapta each month. Each flight tracked during the promotional period (up to a limit of 25 per person) will represent a single, unique entry into the sweepstakes.

Yapta.com is the only travel shopping website that delivers a unique combination of price assurance and transparency to travelers that make their travel arrangements online. Airfare and hotel prices are highly volatile, sometimes rising and falling multiple times a day, making it extremely difficult to find the best deal or the confidence to book early. Yapta helps travelers find their ideal flights and hotels - and then tracks the prices multiple times a day and alerts the traveler when the price drops. This free service ensures travelers get the most value for their travel spending and pay the lowest available price for their travel arrangements. To date, Yapta has alerted over 600,000 travelers to more than $180 million in savings.

The first of nine month-long promotional periods runs from June 1 to June 30, 2009. Official sweepstakes rules, instructions and entry details can be obtained at www.yapta.com/9monthsofparadise/.
