three nights on mendocino coast

Sweeps alert: Redbook has a sweeps entry on its website for a seven-night stay at the Lake Austin Spa Resort. Per the Official Rules, the sweeps runs through August 19. Well, when I attempted to enter this sweeps this morning, I got the following message: We’re sorry, this sweepstakes is not accepting entries. That’s a first. It’s too bad the sponsors couldn’t figure out a way to convey this information at the top of the entry form. This is the information age, is it not? Besides the usual fleeting fantasies of winning (an entire week in a resort, Austin is swell city, etc.), I didn’t exactly waste a lot of energy here. But still.

I ended up successfully entering this one, three nights at the Stevenswood Spa Resort on the Mendocino coast. To enter, click here. The deadline is August 29. Luxury Link is the sponsor.
