#DOAC with Crowdtap

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world.

Maintaining a blog is oftentimes hard work but it is such a great and rewarding experience and some of the perks aren’t half bad either. However, you don’t always have to be a blogger to receive perks, especially if they are coming from CrowdTap.

Are you are active on other social networking platforms and have a lot to say?  Perhaps you enjoy taking pictures or hosting great parties, if so, then you need to sign up with Crowdtap.

Crowdtap is a social media network where you can use your creativity to win gift cards and free products from big-name brands. These brands are looking for you to show and tell others how you use everyday items either through photos, videos, and writing. Rewards are then given to the top submissions.

I’ve been a Crowdtapper for a few months and on Monday, I along with several others “tappers” were rewarded with the ultimate Crowdtap sampling to date.  A FREE overnight stay at a Hotel Casino in Atlantic City, courtesy of #DOAC. Most of these Crowdtappers were from New Jersey and the surrounding states including New York, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania, I believe I was the only one from Delaware.

The invitation included a guest, but unfortunately, hubby was unable to attend due to the fact we have an air conditioning leak that needed constant attention. It was a beautiful day and Atlantic City is only a 2 hour drive so I didn’t mind making the trip solo.

After checking into a Premium room at Caesars Hotel I was able to relax for about an hour before changing clothes and then meeting our Atlantic City representatives in the lobby.  From there we were taken to a #DOAC Pool Party Cocktail Reception at Golden Nugget – H2O Pool Bar and Grill.

A Jitney picked us up for this short ride to the reception where several Crowdtap reps greeted us with a #DOAC Swag Bag and Wrist Bracelet. We also received 2 tickets for a Jitney Ride and the bracelet was an identifier to receive special menu prices at certain Boardwalk bars and restaurants. The view from atop the Golden Nugget was awesome and for an hour we mingled and noshed on Beef and Vegan sliders, skewered BBQ Chicken, French Fries, Onion Rings, Salads and an open bar of beers, wines, sodas and water.

After eating and a few brief words from the Crowdtap reps we re-boarded the Jitney and headed back to the beach to check out some amazing sand sculptures.

These were just a few of the entries in the DO AC Sand Sculpting World Cup contest.

Afterwards we were on our own so I took advantage of getting some exercise by walking the miles long boardwalk, people watching, taking pictures, browsing the shops, just enjoying the beautiful night atmosphere then ending the day at the casino, losing $60 in the process!

BTW, I found people to take pictures of me after offering to take pictures of them, usually couples who were more than willing to oblige – thank you kind strangers!

I had all intentions of rising at 5:30 am the next day to capture the sunrise over the sea, but hit the snooze button too many times before finally getting out of bed at 8:00 am. It was still a great DOAC way to start the day, a cup of coffee, an ocean breeze and watching the waves lap the shore was an invitation to return with the family.

Before checking out at 11:00, I once again walked the boardwalk enjoying the last few hours of this mini vacation.  Then I hit the road and was home exactly 2 hours later, a little more rested and thankful for having been a rewarded Crowdtapper for the day and a big thank you to #DOAC, see ya soon!

      Yes, those sculptures were amazing, I can’t imagine how long it took but it would have been great to actually see them working on them.

    Cool! I haven’t been to AC in 5 years. Do they still smoke in the casinos?

    1. DelBlogger

      Yep, but they have non-smoking sections as well.

    What a great opportunity! It looks like you had a great time. I have always been curious about Atlantic City since I’m closer to LV. Looks like the city and casino hotel has lots to offer. Great to see that the shore had revived nicely and the city is doing cool things to keep visitors engaged. Next time you need a date, I’ll join you! Ha ha. Cheers!

    1. DelBlogger

      I’m sure you would have flown right over! The beach definitely looked nice and they did a great job after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy and as soon as the water heats up, I’ll be going back!
