Airbnb’s latest stunt sends people on a shopping spree with Sarah Jessica Parker
Four users will shop and eat froyo with the ‘Sex and the City’ star.
Airbnb is sending four users on a New York City shopping spree with none other than Carrie Bradshaw.
A listing on the home rental site to buy shoes and eat froyo with Sarah Jessica Parker sold out Monday morning. The four available spaces were first come, first served and cost $400 each. The money will go to the New York City Ballet, where Parker is a board member.
Called “Sole of the City with SJP,” the experience set for Oct. 6 will start at Bloomingdale’s where the Sex and the City star will help find people their perfect pair of shoes. The New York City icon will then take people to a frozen yogurt shop and send them with VIP seats to the NYC Ballet.
It may seem unusual that Airbnb is facilitating the celebrity meetup, but this is just the latest stunt following last year’s release of “Trips,” a platform that offers unique “experiences” to travelers in cities worldwide. Experiences were first offered in just 12 cities, but are now available in 40 markets, with New York City hosting 150 alone.
Other celebrity charity experiences include a golfing trip with former NFL star and media personality Michael Strahan for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and a trip to Brooklyn with actor/singer Ansel Elgort to benefit Americares.
