Super 8 Celebrates Forty Years of Super Hotel Stays

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwired - August 18, 2014) - Celebrating 40 years of providing guests with super accommodations, the Super 8® hotel brand today launched its "40 Years and Still Looking Super Instant Win Game and Sweepstakes," offering travelers across the U.S. and Canada the chance to win their share of travel-themed prizes ranging from free hotel nights and restaurant gift cards to retro t-shirts, Super 8 travel mugs and more.

Available exclusively at www.facebook.com/Super8, travelers can enter for their chance to win by liking the Super 8 Facebook page and registering via the 40 Years and Still Looking Super tab. Once registered, travelers can then play the instant win game: a timed virtual puzzle challenge featuring historic and modern-day images of the Super 8 brand and its hotels. Once finished, players find out if they're an instant-winner and receive an entry into the sweepstakes. The instant win game and sweepstakes may be played and entered up to three times daily during the promotional period.

"From its humble beginnings as a single hotel in Aberdeen, South Dakota to what is now the world's largest economy hotel chain with more than 2,400 locations, Super 8 has spent the last 40 years earning an enviable place in the hearts of travelers," said John Valletta, Super 8 brand president. "We're not only proud of our heritage -- one built on the promise of comfortable and affordable accommodations -- but incredibly thankful to the millions of customers who have helped us get to where we are today."

As part of the instant win game, each week 10 prizes will be awarded ranging from free night stays at any Super 8 hotel to retro-designed Super 8 t-shirts and Super 8 hot and cold travel mugs. A total of 40 instant win game prizes will be awarded. In addition, at the end of the sweepstakes, eight winners will also be chosen at random from among all eligible entries to receive a Super 8 road trip prize pack. Each prize pack will include two free nights at any Super 8 hotel, a $100 restaurant gift card, a $100 gas gift card and four movie tickets.

The Super 8 40 Years and Still Looking Super Instant Win Game and Sweepstakes runs through September 14, 2014 and is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada. Upon registering, travelers will be required to provide their Wyndham Rewards membership number or enroll in the free-to-join loyalty program as part of the registration process.
