Football fans have a chance to win a Superbowl package, courtesy of Bank of America and Visa. To enter the sweepstakes, all NFL fans have to do is use their Bank of America Visa credit or debit cards to make a purchase—there is no entry form or sign-up necessary.
Each purchase on the card through November 22 will count as an entry. When using a debit card, customers should be sure the transaction is processed as credit, not debit. Only credit transactions are eligible for entry in the contest. The more transactions made, the greater the chances of winning.
The sweepstakes is open to Bank of America Visa customers who are legal residents of the United States and over the age of 18 as of October 7, 2013, the start date of the sweepstakes. The winner will be chosen at random in mid-December. Terms and conditions can be found here.
New Jersey to host Superbowl
The forty-eighth edition of the big football game is scheduled to be played at MetLife Stadium in Rutherford, New Jersey, on February 2 next year. The package will include a stay in New York, two tickets to the big game, a $500 Visa gift card, and exclusive pregame field access. The total prize package is valued at $19,605.
The winner will get some help paying the taxes on their winnings. The Grand Prize includes a check for $5,515 meant to help pay those taxes—though ultimately, it will be up to the winner to decide how to spend it.
The tax-relief check is in addition to the rest of the prize: round trip first-class airfare for two from the winner’s closest airport to New York City on January 30, 2014, a four-night hotel stay, transportation from the airport to the hotel, the game, and all other activities, lunch or dinner with a yet-to-be-named NFL player, and a $500 Visa gift card that can be spent anywhere, anytime.
Before the game starts, the winner will get pregame field access in order to personally deliver the NFL coin used in the coin toss to game officials. And during the trip, the winner and guest will be welcomed at an exclusive NFL-sponsored party.
