The Unauthorized Slurpee Contest

Posted on: June 10th, 2014 by carolyn

My Prize

Last month I won a year’s supply of Slurpees from @SlurpeeCanada. They held an Instagram contest called #SoLongWinter. To enter, you had to submit a picture of yourself via Instagram shedding winter clothing.

CONTEST ENTRY TIP: The more restrictions a promotion has, the better the odds of winning.

The promotion had 5 restrictions: It was held at (1) only 10 locations (2) across Canada (3) between 11:00am-7:00pm (4) on May 14th 2014. Donating a piece of winter clothing to the Salvation Army (on site) would garner you a free medium Slurpee.  (5) All images were judged.  (Full Contest Online Rules.)

I was lucky enough to win with this image:

The Winning Picture

Part of the fun of winning is sharing.  My daughter decided I should share my prize with my readers, fans and followers by hosting a contest.  (She is only 12 and is already a savvy marketer.  The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.  Plus, I wouldn’t be the Contest Queen if I didn’t also host giveaways.)  Enter below for your chance to win 25 coupons for FREE medium Slurpees (valid at any 7-Eleven in Canada).

My challenge to Slurpee Canada is to: match my prize with an additional 25 Slurpee coupons and/or Slurpee swag.  Let’s see the Slurpee fun grow!

Win a sMOOth Prize Pack!

Posted on: June 1st, 2014 by carolyn

Udderly Smooth

The fun of being the Contest Queen is not only do I enter contests, but I get to play with contests from the other sideEasyPromos is allowing me to test their Premium Facebook Contest App so I can: 1) see how it compares to their competition and 2) learn what their app’s strengths are.  Of course, I can’t hold a contest without a prize. Udderly Smooth has donated a sMOOth prize pack (pictured above) for the app test.

SHORT RULES: Open to Canada and the United States.  One time per person per day.  Ends at 11:59:59pm June 15th 2014.

ENTRY LINK: http://premium.easypromosapp.com/p/25181 (not a referral link, but the mobile friendly link created by the app for me to use)

Here is where I shamelessly promote the sponsors because, like me, they believe it’s SOCIAL media, and enjoy creating online relationships that lead to real world results (sales, partnerships, co-branding, friendships, etc.).

Udderly Smooth

I am very bias.  I think everyone should check out Udderly Smooth’s product line (as we all have skin!).  It’s also how I began working with Redex Industries.  As a fan, I contacted them for a prize donation and the rest is history.  I am looking forward to seeing their Director of Marketing, Linda Kuzior, again at Bloggy Conference this September.  I am sure we will create some co-marketing activities together.

easypromos-logoIf you run contests, check out EasyPromos for your free trial.  So far, so good.  The program was simple to use and the support to answer any of my questions was superb.  Now here is where you come in as an entrant. What did you think of the contest app? Was it easy to enter? Was it easy to share? Did you have any problems?  Please give me your feedback below.  We (both EasyPromos and I) would love to hear from you.

blogtalkradio_logoAlso, their North American Director; Brian McNeil-Smith, will be my guest on With The Contest Queen: How Creating Promos Can Be Easy.  Tune in on Wednesday June 11th at 10:00am ET.  You can also call in with your questions at (845) 241‑9907.

GOOD LUCK!

P.S. Jeff looks nothing like his icon (above right), but just as cool (and just as fun)!! LOL! I have had the pleasure of knowing Jeff since I began writing the first edition of You Can’t Win If You Don’t Enter.  I have even interviewed him on my online radio show: Not All Clicks Are Created Equal, and for my blog: New Look for Sweepstakes.ca, just to name two.  (I wish the links I had to the Global TV interviews we did still worked.)
