Update 1 - May 30: Sorry about the delay in announcing winners - we were at a funeral in Calgary. I just emailed our five winners (1 gift bag and 4 sets of scratch and win tickets) to confirm their BC residency and over the age of 19-ness. Once I receive that, I'll post the list. Thanks to everyone for commenting!
Update 2 - May 31: OK, we have confirmed winners! Gift Basket - Claudia from Vancouver. Scratch & Win Tix - Doug from Coquitlam, Breanne from Nanaimo, Nicole from Burnaby and Valerie from Vancouver. Tix will go in the mail tomorrow and we've arranged gift basket delivery. Thanks again for commenting! Congrats to winners!
I kind of can't believe I'm writing this post. Usually when I give things away on MNIK, it's books about marketing and social media or tickets to a conference about marketing and social media.
Not this time!
This time ... it's big, frilly and pink.
The BC Lottery Corporation has launched a new scratch and win ticket to coincide with the premiere of Sex in the City 2.
The $3 Sex & the City Scratch and Win ticket from BCLC gives players a chance to win the top prize of $50,000 and other prizes including a trip to New York PLUS $5,000 spending money and more.
Important things to know about the SATC Scratch and Win Ticket:
- You can purchase tickets at your local lottery retailer.
- Details are available online at www.bclc.com/sexandthecity.
- The Sex and the City Scratch & Win ticket is a B.C. only lottery game.
- Overall chances to win a prize on a $3 Sex and the City are 1 in 3.45.
- Players must be 19 years of age or older to purchase, play or redeem. Know your limit, play within it.
So, to celebrate, I'm giving away four sets of five $3 SATC Scratch and Win tickets AND the crazy stupid gift basket above. It is valued at approximately $400 and contains:
- 10 $3 Sex and the City Scratch & Win tickets
- A piece of Tiffany & Co. jewellery (these earrings)
- 4 Cineplex Odeon movie passes
- SJP perfume
- DVD of the first SATC movie
Note: since SATC Scratch and Win tickets are from the BCLC you must be 19 years or older to win. Plus, to claim any prize won via the scratch and win ticket(s) you must be a BC resident.
Here's how to enter: leave a comment telling me why you like SATC. I actually don't like SATC and I'm interested to hear why you do and why I should. Also, if you don't like SATC but want to enter to score the Tiffany earrings, tell me why you think SATC is a waste of time :).
Contest open til Thursday, May 27 at 5PM Pacific Time. I'll draw the winner of the basket and the four winners of a set of scratch and win tickets on Friday, May 28.
Disclaimer - I do these giveaways for fun. I'm not responsible if your computer goes berserk when you're submitting your entry or if Typepad deletes it or if you develop a gambling problem. You agree that when you enter it's all your responsibility and you're not going to sue me for anything. My choice of winners is final.
