Tax Day Promotion $25K Winner

Quincy, Ill. – Congratulations to Tax Day promotion winner Karen Tripp who won $25,000, courtesy of Kunes Country Auto of Quincy, and paid for by Odds On Promotions.

Watch Tripp being awarded with the $25K check!

This April, to promote their Spring Savings Tax Time Tent Event, Kunes Country Auto of Quincy, working in conjunction with PERQ, sent a bar-coded direct mail piece featuring the chance to win a new car valued at $25,000, or $10,000 towards the purchase of any vehicle on the lot, both to be paid for by Odds On Promotions, as well as other enticing prizes provided by the dealership.

Each mailer featured a pull-tab component that indicated what prizes the recipient could win if they brought the barcoded mailer to be scanned at the “Tax Time” sale. Ironically, on April 15th, Tripp, who was considering going to another dealership to take a test drive, decided to go to the Kunes sales event to see if she had won. Once at the dealership, she spoke to a sales team member who scanned her mailer and informed her that she had not only won a prize, but she had won the $25,000 grand prize, insured by Odds On.

Looking for an effective way to drive traffic and add excitement to your next event? Want to have a tax day promotion winner of your own? Odds On has a variety of promotional ideas that will help you maximize the return on your advertising investment.

Odds On Promotions Writes the Check for $25,000

Hot Springs, Ark. – Congratulations to direct mail winner Kenneth Quarles of Arkadelphia who scored a brand new 2016 Nissan Altima, valued at $25,000, paid for by Odds On Promotions, in a direct mail promotion developed by a marketing company in Georgia.

Quarles won the brand-new ride after he took his cousin’s advice and drove one hour to the dealership to see if he was the grand prize winner. While Quarles wanted to look at the car, winning number or not, when he got to the dealership, he was shocked to find out the number on his mailer matched a set of grand prize winning numbers posted at the dealership.

But Quarles wasn’t the only big winner of the “Splash Into Savings” Sales Event. The dealership was delighted with the turnout, reporting between 600-800 folks visited, which was well above their expected turnout of 500.

Door Hanger Promotions Driving Traffic in Southwest

Wonder if your mail pieces are breaking through the clutter? Looking for an innovative way to kick off a grand opening of a new location? Want to meet your customers right where they live?  Door hanger promotions are an effective tool for getting your business noticed and with a little help from Odds On’s they can be an effective tool for driving foot-traffic as well.

This summer, a direct mail and print house based in the Southwest has consistently helped auto dealer clients achieve upwards of 2% response rates with a door hanger promotion insured by Odds On.

The door hangers invited residents to the dealership for a chance to win a brand new car, $2,500 in cash, or a 60″ big screen television, paid for by Odds On, if the code on their door hanger matched a pre-selected 5-digit code that was programmed into one of Odds On’s handheld verification units.

While there was no winning match, the dealerships received a 2% response rate.

Interested in learning more about using insured prizes to make both your direct mail and door to door marketing more effective? Email or give us a call today at 888-827-2249.

Credit Union Promotions: Lucky Envelopes Games at Sponsor Locations!

credit union promotions - lucky envelopesAre you looking for exciting credit union promotions that will help increase traffic to your location and give customers the chance to win the big bucks?  Then you’re going to enjoy reading about these two promotions that we insured for a Georgia-based company.

A vehicle buying service, that partner with a number of credit unions, decided to insure a Lucky Envelopes promotion on two separate dates at two separate credit union locations.

At the first credit union location, one lucky customer was pre-selected to open 1 of 50 envelopes, one of which contained a grand prize winning insert.  If they chose correctly, they would have won $25,000… paid for by Odds On.

On the second promotion date, at the other credit union location, another pre-selected customer had the chance the select from 1 of 50 envelopes.  This time, if they managed to select the envelope which contained the grand prize winning insert, they would have won $20,000 paid for by Odds On Promotions!

Odds On’s Lucky Envelopes contests, which can be conducted in many different ways, make great credit union promotions because they can be used with a variety of themes – such as holidays and/or special events such as graduations. What’s more, Odds On can even supply you with a stock or customized game board to create a truly eye-catching display.  For a fast and easy quote, contact Odds On today at 888-827-2249 or email us.

Weather Rebate: Increase Sales And Give Customers A Chance To Win Big!

weather rebateHave you ever heard of a weather rebate promotion?  Imagine the response when you advertise that everyone making a purchase during your “Snow Day Saleabration” will get a 100% rebate, if there’s snow on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day or New Year’s Day!

Or, turn it around and offer a rebate if there’s not enough snow for customers to use that brand new 4-wheel drive, snow machine or snow blower by the end of January, February or March!

Did you know? Conditional rebates can also be sports-based.  Award a 100% rebate on all purchases made during a promotional period if your local team wins the big game, hits a grand slam, scores a defensive touchdown – you name it!
