Budget Travel's Real Readers

In our e-mail newsletter, we asked readers if they'd pose in a photo shoot for our marketing materials, then flew a bunch of them to New York City for the weekend.

They got to act like supermodels (without the attitude), and we even took them to dinner!

The moral: If you haven't signed up for the newsletter, you're missing out on interesting opportunities.
