Default 'The Good Hotel Guide 2013' book giveaway

Giveaway started 19 Feb 2013

What's this about?
We've blagged 50 copies of The Good Hotel Guide 2013 for MoneySavers looking for lodgings in the UK and Ireland.The RRP is 15 + 4 p&p, but you can get it for 17.03 from The Book Depository.

What to do
If you're interested, just reply to this (click on 'post reply') and say:


"We at the hotel, motel, Holiday Inn"


To do this you need to be registered for the Forum (if you're not, when you click reply you'll be taken through the process. It's free, of course).

APPEAL: Please ONLY reply to this thread if you will check your private messages to see if you've won a copy next week (week commencing 25 Feb). If you don't get in contact promptly you won't receive a copy and if there are any remaining books they'll be given away.

But bear in mind 150 names are being picked and there are only 50 books (because sadly not everyone gets in touch, so doing it this way helps to speed up the administration process), so you'll have to get in quick.

Also, please DON'T email in as your name won't be counted. Nor include your contact details in this thread as, for your own safety, we don't allow personal details on the public forum so your post may be deleted.

This giveaway appears in the weekly email (if you don't already get the email go to www.moneysavingexpert.com/tips) and will close at 10am on Mon 25 Feb, so please get your posts in before then.

More about the book
The book's blurb ...

"The Good Hotel Guide has been reviewing hotels in the UK and Ireland for over 35 years. The book contains frank reports on over 800 places to stay, including great value B&Bs, restaurants with rooms, city-chic hotels and luxurious country houses. Unlike other guides, we don't accept money, advertising or hospitality. Our hotels are selected because our readers have recommended them and our expert inspector's subsequent visit backs this up. All of our reviews are completely independent, so this book could help you to avoid making an expensive mistake. Also available as an iPhone app."







How will the people be chosen?

50 people will be picked at random (we've a special little computer programme to do it) and a private message will be sent to each of their winning usernames requesting their USERNAME, FULL NAME and ADDRESS details (there'll be an email address to send this information to, we don't want it done via private messages).

The FIRST 50 people to get back to me will win a copy of the book.


The giveaway has a strict one entry per household policy and entries can be deemed ineligible without any explanation or notification.


When will I get the book?

The publisher providing these books will send them out directly though, to aid administration, this won't happen until all 50 winners have provided their name and address. So it may take several weeks between the giveaway's end and actual receipt. This thread will be updated to let winners know when they have been sent out.
