Football Contest a Success for Credit Union: Pass, Punt and Kick

Football Contest - Pass Punt Kick - Facebook

Are you looking to score big points with football fans? Do you sponsor a high school, college or pro football team? Make the most of your sponsorship dollars while giving customers and fans the chance to punt, kick, pass or email their way to incredible prizes with a little help from Odds On with a football contest!

For example, the Texas Tech Federal Credit Union recently gave 3 lucky football fans the chance to win their choice of a vehicles, each valued at $40,000, and paid for by Odds On Promotions, in a Progressive Pass, Punt and Kick football contest.

Football Contest - Pass Punt Kick To get a chance to win their choice of new rides, fans first needed to “like” and register on the Credit Unions’ Facebook page and on game day they randomly selected three contestants to participate in the on-field contest.

The three contestants began at the end zone and threw a pass towards the opposite end zone. The two contestants who passed the ball furthest then punted the football towards the goal posts. The fan that punted the furthest, then got a chance to kick a field goal and win a new set of wheels, paid for by Odds On.

Bank Promotion Ideas: How About a Lucky Envelopes Contest?

bank promotion ideasAre you looking for some great bank promotion ideas that will help you increase traffic at your location as well as offsite special events?  Here’s a fun promotion a Missouri bank ran at a local festival: a Pick ‘Til You Win-style Lucky Envelopes contest.

During the four-day-long festival, one lucky attendee each evening was selected to play Odds On’s Lucky Envelopes game. Each of the four participants got the chance to pick from 40 envelopes on display, each of which held one of three different prize symbols.  Whichever symbol the contestant got “five” of first, was the prize that they would win!

In this case, the prizes consisted of $2,000 cash, $2,500 cash… and an insured grand prize of $15,000 cash, compliments of the bank and paid for by Odds On!   Although no one ended picking the five grand prize inserts right off the bat, all four contestants left with a tidy sum in their pockets, thanks to their friendly local bank!

Pick ‘Til You Win is one of my favorite Lucky Envelope games, because every participant leaves a winner regardless of what envelopes they select.  And did you know that Odds On can also supply you with optional money bags to store your envelopes in, or even a stock or customized game board to increase the visibility and appeal of your promotion?  Or, if you’d rather, you can use your own props — whether they be cases, beer steins or otherwise!

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.
