On the heels of the release of the exciting, all-new 2015 Acura TLX, Acura’s parent company, Honda, has launched a sweepstakes offering qualified entrants an opportunity to win an Acura Thrill Kit.

What is a Thrill Kit?

Why call it a “Thrill Kit?” Because that’s the tagline of the new TLX—“It’s that kind of thrill.” Much like the TLX through its new, modern design is meant to give drivers the latest thrill behind the wheel, these Thrill Kits have been uniquely curated to appeal to people’s personal thrills. Whether you are a sports enthusiast, love travel, enjoy the outdoors and nature photography (or photography in general), or are a die-hard foodie, there is something for everyone!

Types of Thrill Kits

There are a total of ten different Thrill Kits entrants can choose to win. And we must say that they look pretty darn cool! Participants for the Thrill Kit sweepstakes include ESPN, Amazon, Business Insider, CNN, Slate, Foodbeast, fashion creative Eugenie Grey, and photographers Travis Jensen, Ruben Hughes, and Lauren Randolph. You can read a description of each kit on our Thrill Kit contest webpage.

How to Enter

The cool thing about this Thrill Kit sweepstakes is that you don’t have to be a current customer or Acura customer. In fact, no purchase is necessary to enter! Simply go to our Thrill Kit webpage and enter. The entrance process is easy and over in five quick steps:

  1. Go to the website.
  2. Pick the Thrill Kit of your choice.

  4. Click the button that verifies you are at least 21 years of age and that you agree to the official rules.

It’s that easy! And with the holiday season around the corner, this is a perfect opportunity to enter to win a free gift. The sweepstakes period kicked off on October 2, 2014 and runs until November 2, 2014. Make sure that you view the official rules on the website to learn how often you can enter and how the winners will be selected. We hope you enter the sweepstakes and join in on the fun. Good luck!
