You may notice that during every Canucks game on Sportsnet, they announce potential prize winners of the Safeway Score and Win contest. I was always unsure about how to enter, why and when. Whether you have to purchase specific items on game day, by a certain time or pat yer head while rubbing your belly.
I’ve decided to look up the rules, regulations and stipulations to find out how I can better my chances at snagging that cordless phone, rolex, vaccum, or movie prize pack.
According to the official site, SafwayScoreAndWin.com: “Everytime you shop at Safeway & you swipe your Safeway Club Card, you are automatically entered.” Although the Official Rules & Regulations on the site are for the 2005-2006 season, I’m sure the same thing applies this time around. Basically AT ANY TIME between now and next summer, you swipe your Safeway card while making a purchase and you’re in. There are also BONUS products, if you purchase the “featured” product for the week, as announced during Sportsnet games, you get an extra entry.
But wait, there’s more ways to enter!
No purchase necessary – just mail in your vital info along with a participating product label (real or courtesy of your fab artistic skills) and you’re in the draw too.
Now, the “draw” is for prizes as listed above and on the site, golf clubs, snowboard, watch etc. For the $1,000,000 prize a) your will be the only name drawn and announced as the contestant in this category for a particular game b) a player on the Vancouver Canucks must score 5 goals, not including shoot out goals in that game. A tall order for sure but imagine watching the Canucks kick that much ass AND walking away a million bucks richer that night?
So next time you’re out grocery shopping, head to Safeway (although their prices are higher and their produce is lacking) and swipe your club card. Look for the tag (with the logo pictured just above) and get your bonus entry. The chances seem pretty slim, but it’s worth a shot – I mean, it’s not like we’re going to stop buying groceries any time soon. Admittedly though, it’s not as amusing as the Power Play Contest on TEAM1040, where they announce your entry is courtesy of your Filet O Fish purchase at McDonald’s last night.
