Europe's leading online travel company, eDreams, has launched its "Everyday America" competition (URL campaign) on Facebook with prizes of trips to New York, Havana, Cancún, Buenos Aires, São Paulo and Montevideo for two people, in addition to a five-night stay at a TRYP hotel and significant discounts on flights.

The Social Media Director at eDreams, Bob Samii, states that "competitions are an important part of our marketing strategy on social networks to promote customer loyalty among our nearly 700,000 followers on Facebook." For these to be successful "it is important that the prizes are appealing, therefore through the 'Everyday America' campaign, trips to the most emblematic destinations in the American continent are now up for grabs," he adds.
To take part in the competition simply enter via the Facebook app (https://www.facebook.com/edreams), choose your preferred destination out of the six possible options available and share the link with your friends. The more people who share the link, the more chances you have of winning one of the six trips or one of the seven discount vouchers of 100 euros.
A winner will be selected each day and will be announced on the eDreams Facebook page every afternoon.
To promote the campaign, eDreams is hosting Twitter Parties in several countries, with the one in Spain to be held on 19 March.
