Quite a few people would regard winning a free trip to Germany in the same way
as winning a free week at Butlins in the 1950s.

read the small print-


Except where prohibited, entrant agrees that any and all disputes,
claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with this
Sweepstakes or any prize awarded shall be resolved under the laws of
Morocco, without respect to any conflict of law issues, and entrant
agrees that such shall be resolved individually, without resort to any
form of class action, and exclusively by the tribunals of the city of
Casablanca, Morocco.

Morocco???

I find it also strange that
"The Grand Prize Drawing ("Sweepstakes") is offered in conjunction with
multiple companies ("Promoters") through different Web sites ("Creative
Presentations"), announcing many different prizes. One such Promoter is
winafreetriptogermany.com."

But winafreetriptogermany.com is just a domain owned by Bonanzas Inc.
Harrisburg, not a company.
http://www.bonanzas.com/sweepstakes.html

and what does
" ONLY ONE (1) PRIZE ACROSS ALL CREATIVE PRESENTATIONS WILL BE AWARDED."
mean? That there are other sweepstake sites with different prizes and the
winner will be at a site with a comparably cheap prize?

" The Sweepstakes begins 01-Oct-2004U.S. Eastern Time ("ET") and ends 31
December 2005 ET ("Sweepstakes Period")."
Isn't this not a bit of an unusual long period. 15 months?


Here a much more realistic sweepstake where you can also win a free trip to
Germany
http://www.cometogermanynow.com/Consumer/sweeps.asp
- directly run by the German National Tourist Office
- ends at 30. November 2004

Wherever that was. The real pits would be a trip to France, as far as
I'm concerned. Been there. Prefer anywhere in Germany or Scandinavia.

Only if you are a US resident

"This drawing is only open to legal residents of the United States,
aged 18 or older as of the date of entry."

Indeed. But this is also the case with the sweepstake site
www.winafreetriptogermany.com this discussion was started with.

Quote from the www.winafreetriptogermany.com rules:
"The Sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States
(including the District of Columbia) who are 18 years of age or older at the
time of entry."
