Miss604's Go-Green with BCAA Contest

Comments 34 by Rebecca Bollwitt

I’ve given away t-shirts, tickets, and cool treats in recent contest and now I’m offering a $75 BCAA gift card, which once again is as easy as leaving a comment on this post.

With the gift card you can pick up something from any of their locations such as maps, books, travel packages, attraction tickets, bags and luggage, power converters and other travel accessories, along with things like safety devices for your home or automobile. You don’t have to be a member to redeem the gift card, should you win.

BCAA has donated this prize in conjunction with offering up your chance to win a Toyota Prius.

This initiative from BCAA is to help promote their new eco-conscious insurance plans — with the evenings and weekend plan they figure why pay full price for insurance rates when you’re leaving the car at home to walk, carpool or take transit to work.

They have also introduced the Green House program that offers rewards for those using ENERGY STAR® furnaces or major appliances in their homes (even including things like low-flow toilets).

You can leave a comment on this post to enter to win the $75 gift card and/or head over to the BCAA contest page to win the car. Good luck!

Disclosure: I was not paid to run this contest, the prize was donated for one lucky Miss604 reader

Update: I just picked the winner of the gift card (number drawn by Random.org) and it’s Chris (comment March 22nd) thank you and congratulations!

    I’ve heard you on the radio and just started following on twitter! Thanks for all the great info!

  2. MattyWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 11:23am PDT

    Cool deal! I wants ;).

  3. AlexWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 11:28am PDT

    The evenings and weekend plan is a great idea to encourage people to drive less and help the environment get a little greener. I love that new concept!

  4. Jon JenningsWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 11:32am PDT

    Wooo – I love giveaways.

    Thank you!

  5. TylerWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 11:33am PDT

    Free stuff is always good! Not sure what I would do with a BCCA gift card though…I guess if I win, you’ll find out what I do with it!

  6. SamWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 11:42am PDT

    Attraction tickets? Awesome! Thanks!

  7. Paul PhelanWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 11:43am PDT

    Hey Becca;

    This sounds great, I entered the contest, I really need the $75 gift card, hope I can get it! 😀


  8. JerWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 11:45am PDT

    If I was the lucky winner, I would use it to renew my membership. BCAA has been a great help when I have car trouble!

  9. Michelle EvansWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 11:45am PDT

    I think that’s super innovative – evenings & weekends insurance. So many city commuters take transit anyway. Good stuff!

  10. Karen GWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 11:51am PDT

    I hope I win! I am buying a Yaris this week and could use it towards a membership! I agree with Michelle, I still bus to work but will be nice to use my car only on eves and weekends.

  11. gladysWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 12:01pm PDT

    I’m in for a BCAA contest … thanks!

  12. ColleenWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 12:25pm PDT

    That reminds me, I have let my membership lapse. I know what the GC would go towards.

  13. MichaWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 12:48pm PDT

    cool! Thanks!

  14. RaulWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 12:49pm PDT

    I don’t drive (only use transit) but heck, if I can win a car, I am so there!

  15. chrisWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 1:07pm PDT

    I’m in the same boat as Raul, except I don’t use transit because the transit schedule in this town leaves much to be desired. The Green House program sounds nifty though.

  16. Sheryl McGrawWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 1:12pm PDT

    Great idea! I’m a transit rider too but would love to win so I can buy a BCAA membership for my weekend vehicle.

  17. VictorWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 4:05pm PDT

    I’m up for winning either!

  18. AngeleWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 5:50pm PDT

    im in for the contest

  19. lucWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 7:11pm PDT

    I’m so green with envy!

  20. BethWednesday, March 18th, 2009 — 9:11pm PDT

    Speaking of eco-friendly and of BCCA – I’m a member of the Cooperative Auto Network (or, as everyone calls it, the Car Co-op) and the all the Car Co-op cars are covered by BCAA, which is pretty cool. Anyway, that’s my comment – here’s hoping I win that GC!

  21. RobThursday, March 19th, 2009 — 12:58pm PDT

    Good luck everyone!

  22. JoThursday, March 19th, 2009 — 6:04pm PDT

    I heard you on CFun , thought I’d enter.

    “Good Luck to All”

  23. lindaThursday, March 19th, 2009 — 8:26pm PDT

    Thanks for the tweeter info the other day…..good site!

  24. ChrisSunday, March 22nd, 2009 — 6:49pm PDT

    It just occurred to me that I still have a BCAA membership, but haven’t used any of it’s benefits for quite a long time. Considering I also have the roadside assistance with Hyundai, I really should look at what else BCAA can provide to me. =)

  25. GraemeMonday, March 23rd, 2009 — 4:18pm PDT


    To be transparent I work for BCAA. I get a free membership but I don’t drive. My membership has reduced my premium on home & auto insurance to the point that it would make the renewal fee worthwhile if I had to pay for it.

    I have also received discounts when booking hotels in Whistler through BCAA.

    Your membership follows you so even if you’re not in your Hyundai you can get roadside assistance.

    Ding Ding! Hello travel insurance!

  27. Azim RaghavjiThursday, March 26th, 2009 — 4:01pm PDT

    Congratulations to another BCAA Green Initiative.
    Helping people get from A to B, safe and sound.
    Have a Fabulous Day

  31. JohnTuesday, March 31st, 2009 — 2:16am PDT

  32. Susanna TappTuesday, March 31st, 2009 — 8:37pm PDT

    Hope I win

  33. CaroleSaturday, April 25th, 2009 — 10:43am PDT

    If I won the gift certificate I would use it to get a BCAA membership for my grand-daughter who just turned 16 and is engaged in driver’s training right now.

  34. CaroleSaturday, April 25th, 2009 — 10:46am PDT

    The $75.00 prize money would go to purchasing a year’s BCAA membership for my grand-daughter who will be driving soon. Thanks.
