If you create an xtra xtra milestone between December 1 and December 20, you’ll be eligible to win one of two $300 Jet Blue gift cards! Ring in the New Year on the beaches of Aruba. Head down to Disney or go ice skating in New York’s Rockefeller Plaza. Wherever you want to go, we’ll help you get there!
It’s easy to enter this contest. Obviously we encourage you to share all of your important milestones on the site, but only one will count as your entry to the contest.

WHAT MAKES A VALID MILESTONE?
Our site is all about sharing your milestones and community news. People want to stay connected to their friends, family, neighbors and communities- so that they can join them in commemorating important milestones. So please make sure your posts are:
- TIMELY- Posts must be current and timely. For example, if you got engaged in November, an ongoing engagement would be timely- whereas a wedding that happened two years ago would not. Make sure that posts do not contain outdated information.
- RELEVANT- Each posting must contain real people and events that are associated with actual schools and pertinent towns/zip codes. Your posting must be relevant to the milestone category and written in the spirit of hometown news and community announcements.
- DETAILED/SPECIFIC- Use details and full names to give your readers the full experience of your posting. Each posting must be at least three (3) sentences in length to be considered admissible, and it should include the details you would normally find in an article in your local newspaper. Please view the samples if you are unsure.
Read these carefully, as failure to comply will make you ineligible for the contest!
- You must be 18 years or older to participate.
- You must be legal resident of the United States. (Sorry Canada! We love you. Hopefully we will be up there soon.)
- Each individual can earn a maximum of three (3) entries in the contest. One (1) for a valid posting, one (1) for sharing that posting on twitter and one (1) for sharing the posting on Facebook.
- By participating in this contest, entrants agree to be bound by the rules and the decisions of xtraxtra.com, which shall be final and binding.
- There will be two different winners selected. In the unlikely event that the same person is selected twice, an alternate winner will be chosen for the second prize.
