We’re Sending you on a Summer Vacation. Really.
Hi. We’re Ben and Jon, and we’d like to send you on a summer vacation.
Ever since we started the No Mas Coach blog a few years back, we’ve been extremely grateful for the opportunity to travel to 6 continents, 46 countries, and 32 states. We’ve traveled in the world’s best first class products, stayed in luxury hotels, and experienced fine dining like no other. At the same time, we understand and realize that there are plenty of people in our network (and yours as well) that don’t have the ability to take a vacation, even for a weekend with their family. Everyone deserves a summer vacation, and we’re here to help with that.
Before our recent redemption to the Maldives we were sitting on a total point balance, combined, of just over 8 million points. Just this week we redeemed for two more trips bringing our point total down to around 5.8 million. We want to be able to share some of that points balance with someone else who truly needs a great vacation.

If your head is spinning, trying to figure out how we earn the miles that we do, here’s some posts that should help out with that.
Our Cashier Friend
Last week we were talking to a friendly cashier at one of our local stores where we buy office supplies, explaining how we do what we do. The conversation went a little something like this:
Cashier: I love that you guys are earning all these miles and points. I’ve thought about how to do it, but it’s just beyond my realm of comprehension
Us: We get it… it takes a lot of work. But don’t forget, there’s always the cheap tickets just to get away. Right now there’s a sale from Seattle to Tampa for only $110 Round Trip!
Cashier: I know, but even spending that much is a challenge. We’re paycheck to paycheck and then getting the time off of work…
It’s the situation that we’ve all been in before. There are three outcomes to the “travel more” conversation.
- You’ve got the money, but no time.
- You’ve got the time, but no money.
- You’re lacking both.
- You don’t want to travel, and we can’t be friends.

We believe that #EveryoneDeservesAVacation, so we’re going to be doing our part and giving away two summer vacations this month. No strings attached, no “we’ll get you there and then you’re stuck figuring out the rest…” no “we’ll buy your flight and the hotel is on you…” these are honest to goodness vacations.
But, in order to pull this off, we need your help.
Two Ways to Win
We’re going to give away a US summer vacation (for two) in the month of March with a final entry date of March 31st. We’ll tally all of the entries and pick the winner on May 5th. In order to win (see full T&C at the bottom of the post) you must be located in the United States or its territories. Sorry international readers, this one’s for the US only.
The first summer vacation will be a very simple entry format. Follow us on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter. Follow us on Instagram. You’re allowed to enter on each platform with the hashtag #EveryoneDeservesAVacation.

We’ll tally up all the entries and choose a winner!
This one is going to be near and dear to our hearts. We’ve all got someone in our lives like the cashier in our above example. You know who they are. They might even be someone in your family (heck, it could even be your wife, husband, brother, mother…) or they could be someone that you interact with on a daily basis. We want to reward those people who don’t play in the miles and points space but are important to you.
Everyone deserves a vacation.
Tweet or Share on Facebook a short video (15-45 seconds) with the same hashtag, #EveryoneDeservesAVacation, telling us who you want to nominate and why. The team here at NoMasCoach will take all the entries and narrow down the list and choose the winner on May 5th. They’ll also win a trip for their plus 1 as well!
Here’s a chance for you to do something nice for someone that makes a difference in your life.

Finally, please, share, retweet, send via carrier pigeon, send up smoke signals, whatever you can do to get the word out. The only way that we’re going to be able to reach the most number of people is with your help.
We hope that we will be able to make your dreams of a vacation come true! Good luck, and thanks!
