Love Locks Getaway Sweepstakes {And A Giveaway}

I love working with brands who make it easy for people to give back so I’m excited to share this special promotion and sweepstakes Master Lock is doing. Don’t miss the fun Valentine’s themed item one lucky reader of this blog is going to win as well!

To raise awareness for American Heart Month, Master Lock is offering people the chance to win a trip to Paris, France through their MasterLoveLock.com website. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the Lock Up Love & Getaway Sweepstakes encourages visitors to the site to create, send and have their recipient accept a virtual love lock, and by doing so, become eligible to enter the sweepstakes while simultaneously benefitting a worthy cause.

In 2012, Master Lock donated more than $10,000 to the American Heart Association and is stepping up to the plate once again this year. In addition to another $10,000 base donation, Master Lock will donate a dollar for each completed and shared love lock on the site through the month of February, up to an additional $5,000. Besides being the month of love, February is also American Heart Month, a time dedicated to bringing awareness to heart health and building healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease.

Visitors to MasterLoveLock.com can lock up their love virtually and enter to win the Lock Up Love & Getaway Sweepstakes, which includes flights, hotel accommodations and spending money for two guests. While in Paris, the couple will have the opportunity to witness the love locks tradition in person at the Pont de l’Archevêché. For decades, sweethearts have participated in this romantic custom around the world by affixing padlocks to fences, gates and bridges, and then throwing away the key, to symbolize their everlasting love.

Those who participate in the sweepstakes will also have the opportunity to win additional prizes, including a $1,000 Visa® gift card; Valentine’s Day themed gift packs filled with flower arrangements, luxury candles, chocolates, romantic DVDs, the Master Lock 1509DLOV Love Lock and more.

To enter, visitors select a lock and one of seven famous bridges to virtually affix the chosen lock. Next they upload a personal message for their loved one. A customized “love lock invitation” is then sent to the recipient via email. Once the invitation is accepted, the love lock sender will receive confirmation and a link to the sweepstakes entry form.
