Miss604's Go-Green with BCAA Contest

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 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. Matty says:

    Cool deal! I wants ;).

  3. Alex says:

    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 Jennings says:

    Wooo – I love giveaways.

    Thank you!

  5. Tyler says:

    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. Sam says:

    Attraction tickets? Awesome! Thanks!

  7. Paul Phelan says:

    Hey Becca;

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


  8. Jer says:

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

  10. Karen G says:

    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. gladys says:

    I’m in for a BCAA contest … thanks!

  12. Colleen says:

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

  13. Micha says:

    cool! Thanks!

  14. Raul says:

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

  15. chris says:

    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. 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. Victor says:

    I’m up for winning either!

  18. Angele says:

    im in for the contest

  19. luc says:

    I’m so green with envy!

  20. Beth says:

    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. Rob says:

    Good luck everyone!

  22. Jo says:

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

    “Good Luck to All”

  23. linda says:

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

  24. Chris says:

    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. Graeme says:


    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.

  26. Jenn says:

    Ding Ding! Hello travel insurance!

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

  30. thomas says:

    75$ would be great for year’s worth of travel insurance!!!

  31. John says:

    also just started following you on twitter – found you through jenn lowther’s twitter feed.

  32. Susanna Tapp says:

    Hope I win

  33. Carole says:

    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. Carole says:

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