Be a Spend & Win-ner
When Lisa Coleman was phoned and told she had won a $200 Deniliquin Gift Card as the winner of last week’s Spend & Win draw, she said it made her day.
The Deniliquin resident said she was thrilled to have some extra spending money in the lead up to Christmas.
Mrs Coleman’s winning ticket was plucked from the entry barrel at Central IGA on Friday afternoon.
The winning ticket came from Spend & Win’s platinum sponsor Intersport Bennett’s.
‘‘I was so excited when I received the phone call telling me I had won,’’ she said.
‘‘It’s good to shop local because it keeps people employed and keeps our money within the town.’’
Mrs Coleman can use her $200 Gift Card at any of the businesses participating in the Spend & Win promotion (excluding ‘nonretail’) but she seems pretty confident where she’ll spend her prize money.
‘‘I put on a layby here the other day so I think I’ll spend my voucher on that which is a present for my son for Christmas,’’ she said.
There are seven more $200 draws to take place over the next seven weeks.
The major prizes — $1000 and $2000 gift cards — will then be drawn on December 16.
To be in the running to win one of the remaining gift cards, all you have to do is shop at a participating store.
For every $10 you spend, you’ll receive an entry ticket. To enter, fill in your details and place it in the store’s Spend & Win ticket collection box.
Weekly draws are conducted at 3pm each Friday. All entries not previously drawn are eligible for the major prizes.
Spend & Win is a PASTORAL TIMES initiative, with support from major sponsors Central IGA, Cellarbrations and Josh’s Bakehouse.
