Win a trip to outer space
Paramount's new film Super 8 is hitting theaters this summer, and the folks there are teaming up with 7-Eleven and Foursquare to send one lucky winner to outer space.
So stop wondering what's out there, and use your mobile phone to check in at 7-Eleven for your chance to win the trip and other great prizes in the 7-Eleven Super 8 Check in to Space sweepstakes.
To enter, go to a 7-Eleven store and check in with your Foursquare app. Be sure "Share with Friends" is checked to prove you checked in. Every check-in who participates is entered to win the trip to space. Every 88th check in can win a free movie ticket, and every 88,888th check in can win a Zero-G Experience weightless flight.
The more people who check in, the more chances there are to win. The 888,888th check in unlocks the Space Adventures trip to suborbital space, which includes spaceflight training, medical consultations and screening, hotel accommodations for two nights, ground transportation and nearly $40,000 to help cover taxes. The suborbital trip is for the winner only, and the prize does not include travel. The approximate retail value of the grand prize is $102,000, but the winner can also choose a $25,000 cash option.
