Here's how you can get paid to travel to the Virgin Islands

FOX19 - Thinking about getting away to someplace warm and sandy?

The U.S. Virgin Islands are issuing gift cards worth $300 to visitors at select hotels to celebrate the 100th anniversary of St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix becoming American territories.

The cards can be redeemed for lots of stuff, including tours, kayaking, and museums.

All you have to do is go to, enter the promo code "CP1," and book a three-night minimum stay at one of the participating hotels on St. John, St. Croix, or St. Thomas.

The department of tourism will then send you $300 in credits to use like cash at any of the participating locations.
