The ‘Munk of Love

February is the designated month of love, and we’ve been overwhelmed by the hipmunk love we see on facebook, twitter and throughout the blogosphere all year round.

Now it’s our turn to give back some love with a chance to win a unique hotel experience.

When you head to our homepage, you’ll notice the cupid ‘munk who will be your guide to sharing the love. Let him know who is in need of a little hipmunk in their lives—whether they’re heading to their sister’s wedding in San Diego, planning a multi-city business trip, or just need a little smile to start their day—the cupid ‘munk will shoot a note over to your friend via email.

If you log in or create an account before sharing some hipmunk love with a friend between today and the end of the month (Feb 29…woo hoo, leap year!), we’ll enter you for a chance to win a $500 Mr & Mrs Smith Hotel Collection Get a Room! gift card. Our friends at Mr & Mrs Smith have some chic and fantastique boutique hotels in their global portfolio including some fabulous ones on our own continent in Los Angeles, NYC, Boston, and Montreal.

On March 1, we’ll randomly select one person who shared the love and post the winner’s name to our blog.

The finer print: we encourage you to share the love with all of your friends; however, to make sure nasty spammers don’t steal all of the fun, each person will only be entered to win once. See the official rules here.

And, as you know, we aim to take the agony out of your travel. So while you’re on the site, make sure to log in or create an account, and save your airline and hotel preferences. Also sign up for our newsletter and follow us on facebook and twitter  to get sneak peeks, exclusive promotions and savvy travel tips. We promise we will never spam you.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
