The brand that has been by your side in the sand for nearly 100 years is helping people make the most of summer

CHICAGO (June 28, 2021) — This summer, Corona is helping Americans get back to the beach by giving away $1 million* in Triptocurrency. On Thursday, July 1, the iconic beer will host a one-day instant-win sweepstakes to award “Triptocurrency,” a digital currency valued at $2,500 that can be used for travel bookings made exclusively through Expedia. The currency can be applied to airfare, hotel accommodations or flight + hotel packages - the choice belongs entirely to the winners, subject to restrictions.

Quite simply, Tripto is the Corona version of crypto! It’s free, super valuable and already has several high-profile “investors,” including Snoop Dogg and Zoe Saldana, who will help spread awareness of the giveaway with their followers on social media. Consumers can enter the Corona one-day Triptocurrency giveaway by visiting and learn more by following the conversation on social media using #Triptocurrency.

With the sand between one's toes and the sound of the waves crashing along the shore, nothing compares to the respite the beach provides. Last summer, we were all prevented from enjoying the place that provides an unmatched feeling of relaxation and enjoyment: the beach. Our shorelines were closed, and travel was canceled for family reunions, bachelorette parties and everything in between. The literal beach was off limits, but with the launch of the Corona Tripto program, Americans can broaden their travel horizons as the country continues to reopen and get back to the summer fun they have missed for so long.

“Americans are streaming back to the beaches this summer, and as the brand with our roots firmly in the sand, Corona wants to help them make up for lost time,” said Ann Legan, vice president of brand marketing, Corona. “If crypto is the currency of the future, then Tripto is the currency of the summer, and we’re making it easy to return to the fun and relaxation that only the beach can offer.”

Whether you win Tripto or not, remember that you can always get back to the beach and refresh your perspective @CoronaUSA on Instagram and Facebook and @CoronaExtraUSA on Twitter.

Believing there is no such thing as a better tomorrow without our beaches, the brand is on a mission to preserve these special places for generations to come.
