Would $250,000 come in handy? If the answer is yes, and you have an L.L.Bean Visa card in your wallet you could get lucky. Cardholders are automatically entered into the Here There EVERYWHERE Giveaway when they use their credit card. The contest is running now through December 31.
L.L. Bean and Barclay US have partnered up on the Giveaway. People don’t have to do anything to enter, each and every time they swipe their card, whether it’s for a cup of coffee, a new pair of jeans, or a big ticket item like a TV, they automatically get an entry into the contest. There is no limit to how many entries you can get.
Individuals who are not cardholders can enter the contest by mail without making a purchase. The contest is open to anyone over the age of 18 living in the U.S.
Certain transactions and cards are not eligible including returns, foreign purchases, ATM, convenience-check, late payment fees, over-limit fees, cash advances, annual fees, Visa health and benefit cards, and balance transfers and balance transfer fees. Purchases that require entering a PIN are also not eligible.
The random drawing involving both electronic and mail in entries, will occur on January 14, 2015. It will be conducted by Marden-Kane, Inc., an outside judging organization.
