FFb 8th Anniversary Contest

A little over 8 years ago in February 2005, launched to no fan-fare. It was an experiment
of sorts and a logical expansion of the FFB Group’s first website A major section of the Rewards Canada website was the
Bonus Offers section and we noticed a lot of traffic from outside of
Canada hitting those pages even though they didn’t list any offers that
were available to non-Canadians. So the idea dawned on FFB’s founder to
help that traffic by launching a Global site covering bonus offers from
frequent travel programs worldwide and thus
was born!

Fast forward to 2013 and FFB is even bigger and better and
providing more coverage than we ever have of promotions relating to the
world of frequent travel. Most of that success can be attributed to
FFB’s dedicated fans and readers and without the support of them FFB
would not be where it is today. We would like to thank past, present
and future FFBers by offering you a chance to win some fantastic prizes
as we celebrate our 8th anniversary!

There are four amazing prize packages to be won with
FFB8! Over the course of the next four weeks there will be four
different ways to enter one of the four prize packages.
