If you’re fed up of the cold, your life, your job and everything in between, then you’re in luck, because the U.S. Virgin Islands are willing to pay you some top dollar to visit them. 

Really? Whatever for? And how much? The U.S. territory is willing to cough up 300 dollars to those willing enough to spend three full nights on the beautiful islands of St. Thomas, St. John or St. Croix – have you seen them? They are rather special.

Here’s St. Thomas…

The gesture is part of celebrations marking the selling of the islands to the USA by Denmark.

All you have to do is book your trip through the island’s tourism website – oh, and you’ll need the booking code: CP1. You must visit before October 1, 2017 to get your 300 smackers.

You’ll also need to stay at one of the U.S. Virgin Islands’ participating hotels too.
