Staycations suck: Enter to win a free vacation

Staycation. The marketing term used to describe a vacation taken at home may be clever, but it won't make it any more fun. Staycations inherently suck. Try as you might, you just can't make yet another day at the movies, picnic or museum outing in your own hometown quite as exciting as a full-fledged family vacation to a new destination. At least, that's the argument LastMinuteTravel.com is making with its new "Staycations Suck" campaign and giveaway.

To combat the staycation blues, six lucky winners will be chosen each week from July 13 to August 21 (that means there's still five chances to win) to receive the trip of their choice. . . with a few restrictions of course.

To enter, all you need to do is follow Staycations Suck on Twitter or Facebook and send a message saying why your staycation sucks the most. The best entry for the week will be chosen based on creativity and originality. Winners will be asked to chose three date and location combinations (within North American) and will receive round-trip airfare and accommodations for two people to one of their selected destinations. The total prize costs cannot exceed $6000 and winners must pay taxes on the trip.
