Hello All,


Just wanted to share some of my experiences from the Super Bowl Trip. First of all the trip was top rate from beginning to end. The representatives from Eprize, Microsoft and especially our travel coordinators at Travel By Design were fantastic. We were notified 2 days before the trip that travel would be arranged from our home in Jonesboro Ar to Memphis airport. We didn't expect that since we live a pretty good distance from the airport ( about 80 miles). Our room was at the Marriott Maquis in NYC, we had a room on the 43rd floor overlooking Times Square. Each day we received an itinerary that was slipped under our door  letting us know what activities were planned for the day. On Friday evening we were able to attend an Xbox One party in the companies loft. There we met Barry Sanders, Nick Foles, Lesean Mccoy, Jamaal Charles, and Blake Bortles. Joel McHale from 'Talk Soup' and 'Community' was there as well. It's there that we were presented with one of our prizes the Super Bowl 48 Limited Edition Xbox One (only 50 were made of this model) and a Windows 8 telephone that wasn't included in the prize description . On Sunday we met in the lobby to get our tickets and passes to the NFL Tailgate Party at Meadowlands Racetrack next to Metlife Stadium. We loaded up into the bus and us and 2 other busloads of people given a police escort from the city to the tailgate party. We thought that was cool. Had great tickets for the game on the 40 yard line kind of mid stadium level. We won't talk about the game. We were scheduled to leave on Monday afternoon for home but got snowed in. So, they paid for another night for us and we made it home Tuesday evening. All in all a fantastic, memorable trip! Sorry if I went on too long. Thanks again everyone for the Congrats and thanks to Mr. Sweepy and staff for all they do.

if you wanted to sell the xbox. If you find the right buyer you could probably get good money for it. since its 1 of 50. or don't open it and just keep it in great storing condition. Will be worth a lot more in 30 years. Just recently a limited Nintendo game (actually the game was a promo game and was never for sale) sold for $5,000 online.
