A Free Cookie and a Chance to Win Two Free Nights in the DoubleTree by Hilton 12 Days of Cookies Contest 2017? Sweet!

The DoubleTree by Hilton 12 Days of Cookies Contest 2017 gives you an opportunity to stop in any DoubleTree hotel property located within the United States and get yourself a free warm cookie with no obligation whatsoever — whether or not you are a guest of the hotel property — through Sunday, December 24, 2017; as well as be one of two people to win a stay of two free nights.

A Free Cookie and a Chance to Win Two Free Nights in the DoubleTree by Hilton 12 Days of Cookies Contest 2017? Sweet!

You can participate in the holiday social contest through Sunday, December 24, 2017 by taking a photograph of yourself or a friend wearing festive holiday attire and sharing it on the official Instagram or Twitter accounts of DoubleTree with the hashtags #sweetwelcome and #contest; and you can also comment on this post on Instagram with your favorite drink pairing for the DoubleTree cookie.

A total of two winners — chosen from a random drawing of submissions from all eligible entries received — of the grand prize will receive two free nights valid for use at any DoubleTree by Hilton hotel property around the world in 2018.

Additionally, ten participants will receive the runner-up prize of a holiday cookie tin filled with the signature DoubleTree cookies, which you can otherwise purchase for $14.95.

There is no limit to the number of entries per entrant; but there is a limit of one prize per person, e-mail address or household. You must be a legal resident of one of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia; and you must be 18 years of age or older at the time of entry. This contest is void in Puerto Rico and any other jurisdiction where prohibited or restricted by law. No purchase or payment of any kind is required or necessary to enter, play or claim a prize; and a purchase or payment will not increase your odds or chances of winning.

This is the second year of the DoubleTree by Hilton 12 Days of Cookies Contest, which first started last year.

Separately, you can apparently also “dig out your holiday sweater and share a photo in the replies for a chance to win some festive DoubleTree threads you can wear every season!”; but I am unsure as to whether or not this offer is still valid.

There is no harm in participating and trying to win that as well, though.

Although I will reluctantly eat a DoubleTree cookie, I do not prefer them because they contain nuts — and you might think I am nuts for not liking nuts. They do taste good, though — especially when warm.

I am also not a member of Instagram or Twitter; so I will not be entering as a participant in this contest — but if you decide to participate, I hope that you are one of the winners.

    Go into a hotel just to ask for a cookie? Don’t think I’m going to do that….
