Expedia to Award Eight Lucky Fans With VIP Suite Tickets to Super Bowl XLIII

"Super Bowl Suite Spot Giveaway" Awards Club Level Suite Tickets to Super Bowl XLIII and Expedia.com Discounts as Prizes

BELLEVUE, Wash., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Expedia, the world's leading online travel company and the Official Travel Team of the NFL, today announced a special on-the-ground Super Bowl promotion that will give football fans in Tampa Bay a chance to win a grand prize of luxury club level suite tickets to The Big Game.

The Expedia® "Super Bowl Suite Spot Giveaway" will take place outside the Florida Aquarium, at the "Let it Fly" interactive at NFL Experience and in other high-traffic areas throughout Tampa Bay, starting Thursday, January 29. In order to play, fans must be spotted wearing a bright yellow "Expedia VIP Access Pass," which they can pick up at various locations throughout Tampa Bay -- or print at www.expedia.com/superbowlvip. Fans who print their own passes are encouraged to add their own decorations in order to stand out and be more easily spotted. Everyone who plays the Super Bowl Suite Spot Giveaway is a winner, as each VIP Access Pass includes a $50 coupon toward a three-night hotel stay or hotel package booked on Expedia.com®.

"For football fans, the chance to watch the Super Bowl from a Club Level suite at Raymond James Stadium is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," said Sean Kell, general manager of Expedia.com. "Expedia's Super Bowl Suite Spot Giveaway will make Super Bowl dreams come true for a few people, but it will also bring the dream of a vacation getaway closer to everyone who plays."

In addition to downloading them from www.expedia.com/superbowlvip, fans can secure a yellow VIP Access Pass from one of several locations, including the Florida Aquarium, Channelside Bay Plaza, Ybor City or the NFL Experience. Unmarked Expedia "spotters" will award one pair of tickets on Thursday, January 29, one pair of tickets on Friday, January 30 and two pairs of tickets on Saturday, January 31.

On top of giving eight lucky fans the Super Bowl experience of a lifetime, Expedia is also giving back to the environment. For the second year in a row, Expedia is offsetting the carbon emissions produced by NFL players and staff flying to Tampa Bay through its TerraPass carbon offsetting program. Expedia travelers can do the same - for their flight to the Super Bowl or any other time they fly.
