The Allegiant "Vote for Vacation" contest will allow entries from Hawaii residents, officials said, well after Tuesday's deadline.
At 4:38 a.m. Hawaii time today, Allegiant responded to numerous queries from TheBuzz.
"Prior to our entry into (Honolulu), our contests did exclude Hawaii residents, and it seems we neglected to correct (that)," said Jessica Wheeler, Allegiant public relations manager. "Hawaii residents are welcome to enter," she said.
The contest, launched this week, has so-called campaign buses going to 77 mainland cities to gather "Vote for Vacation" entries from people who choose an Allegiant destination. In each city, one person will win a roundtrip for two. The grand prize is free flights on Allegiant for four years. More info at TheBuzz.
