Universal Orlando giving away 300,000 free 7-day tickets*
Written by Robert Niles
Well, that was a heckuva deal.Tweet
If the Super Bowl hasn't started by the time you read this, you might still have a chance to be one of the first 100,000 people to go to http://www.universalheroes.com/ and enter to get a free seven-day ticket to Universal Orlando.
That was the deal the resort offered in its Super Bowl commercial, which aired just before the National Anthem at the game.
Post if you got 'em, and when you submitted. I put my entry in about within a minute. No word yet. What's the over/under on when they run out?
* Update: Universal's also giving away 28 trips for four to Universal Orlando, in addition to the free 100,000 tickets. The trips include airfare, the seven-day ticket, and three nights' hotel. (Three nights' hotel with a seven-day ticket? Huh?) You can still enter for the free trips even if the 100K tix are gone.
Update 2: Just showed it again: 8:23 pm ET.
Update 3: Universal just sent out its press release. Confirms that the commercial ran three times, with 100K tix given after each. Total value of 300K free tix and 28 trips, according to Universal Orlando? $35 million.
