Done. Team name is, of course, FlyerTalk.

PM or email me your email address for an invitation. Limited to 20 members, so don't delay.

I need your email address to send the invitation.

Not as lucrative but looks like non-CA residents can enter a sweepstakes for 100K RR points: http://www.southwest.com/100KGiveawa...17CaliMillions

Hmmmmm maybe that is their way around awarding the prize? "Well we said you had to enter by 10/18, it isn't our fault we didn't tell you about the contest until 11/1 "

I was feeling bad about the new 12 cents per gallon gas tax..

The in-person events are just not convenient for me (or spread out at all), but it looks like one of those spin the wheel and definitely get something of value.

The instagram contest starts soon too apparently.

And we thought the Chase CP was their big push. 10 prizes of a million points without having to visit the website each day. Wow.

Interesting to see the official ratio of 74:1 on the points.

On the team. I see we each are to spin the wheel daily. Nothing for me today - hopefully someone on Team FlyerTalk wins. I'll spin again tomorrow.

Update: I see that if someone wins the wheel spin, that's an individual win. All Instant Win prizes won are individual prizes, even if potential winner’s Status at the time of play is “Dream Team.”

Is there anything we can do proactively to help the team? Or is it all up to random chance?

It's just about time for someone to start a FlyerTalk2 team and collect email addresses and send invitations. I expect FlyerTalk to be maxed out at 20 with the invitations already sent. Everyone who sent me a PM so far should have received an invitation.

So, I'm confused- what's the benefit of being on a team?

I think being part of a team gets you a shot at the drawing, as someone in your team could hit and then the entire team gets paid, albeit shared.

Increase your odds, decrease your eventual prize. Lower risk, lower return.

Pretty sure it'll have to be "FT 2", as I'm on "FT" and I see 19 other names.

Here's what the prize wheel looks like for the in person special events. You'll need to either register for the first time or log into your personalized WN CA millions page to spin. Be sure you know your WN RR# & SS# if you win bonus miles to fill out the claim form. Good luck!

Safe travels!
