Prize Insurance Winner Brian Johnston Scores $15K During Pandemic

prize insurance winner brian johnstonDenver, PA – Think that because there is a pandemic, you need to slow down your marketing efforts? Think again! This April, prize insurance winner Brian Johnston of Denver won $15,000 courtesy of NextEra Home and paid for by Odds On Promotions, in a Home Appliance Makeover sweepstakes promotion administered by Cohen-Friedburg Associates, Inc (CFA).

The Sweepstakes was promoted via social media, and designed to bring attention to NextEra Home’s appliance and home warranty programs. After registering and completing a brief survey, contestants were entered for a chance to be the one lucky finalist who would select one envelope out of 100 Lucky Envelopes in order to win the $15,000 grand prize, insured by Odds On, or a $1,000 consolation prize courtesy of NextEra Home.

On April 18th, Johnston was randomly selected, and due to the constraints of Covid-19, instead of getting to choose a Lucky Envelope at a central location, CFA got creative, sending the envelopes to the contestant’s home. While a CFA Representative watched via live feed on their cell phone, Johnston selected and opened envelope #33 (in honor of basketball great Larry Bird) winning the $15,000 grand prize.

Golf Putting Winner Scores $5K at NKU Basketball Game

Wishing you were watching Tiger Woods instead of Tiger King? Well, you’re in luck! Because we’ve got a can’t miss golf putting winner video for you!

See how golf putting winner Michael Meier of Edgewood, Ky nailed an impressive 94-foot putt and won $5,000, courtesy of Barleycorn’s, and paid for by Odds On Promotions.

Golf Putting Winner - Michael Meier

Meier won the prize at half-time during the Northern Kentucky University men’s homecoming basketball game after he was randomly selected via a registration form, to participate in the Barleycorn’s $5,000 putting contest. He nailed the shot, sending the entire arena into a frenzy and landing the substantial cash prize.

“I have been watching the contestants over the last couple of years and many have gotten so close. The hardwood is so much faster than an actual green so everything has to be in perfect alignment to sink it,” noted Joe Heil, Barleycorn’s owner and longtime NKU Norse basketball sponsor. “This putt had the speed and the accuracy. It was thrilling to watch!”

According to Brian Bartolo, Vice President of db&m Media, the media agency for Mountain Mike’s that helped craft the sponsorship activation program, “Even though the Kick-It with Mountain Mike’s finalist didn’t quite nail the 40-yard grand prize field goal kick, Mountain Mike’s didn’t let him go home empty handed. They awarded him with a $1,000 consolation prize on the field!”

“In our second year as the official pizza partner of the San Francisco 49ers, we wanted to get fans involved in something fun and potentially life-changing with one lucky individual scoring the chance to win $49,000,” says Jim Metevier, President and COO of Mountain Mike’s Pizza, LLC. “Guests have been coming to Mountain Mike’s for over 40 years with friends and family to cheer on their favorite sports teams, and we’re thrilled to provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that even the most diehard football fans can get excited about.”

In addition to the “Kick It with Mountain Mike’s” sweepstakes, the brand launched a deal at the start of the season where pizza fans score 49 percent off any large one-topping pizza whenever the 49ers score. This offer is going on all season long at participating Mountain Mike’s locations and applies to both home and away games.
