Win $500 from the Huerfano Journal!

    The Huerfano Journal just finished awarding Al Julch of La Veta “One Day’s Interest on a Million Dollars” in our  Blackout Bingo promotion. Many readers won gift certificates from participating merchants while the overall winner won the money.

    Beginning April 17th, readers can participate in another fun promotion that will net some lucky winner a $500 shopping spree with participating merchants.

    Called “A Shopping Spree for Me,” it is similar to Blackout Bingo in that you cut out the promotion ad from the Huerfano Journal each week, fill in the blanks and either bring it in to the Journal office or mail it to us.     You can enter as many times as you like each week, but you have to use an entry form clipped from the Journal- no photocopies.  Contestants must be 18 or older.

    Here is how you fill out your entry form:   Visit participating businesses to see what you would like to buy.   Each entry form has a place to write down how much “spree money” you would like to “spend” at each shop.  The amount of spree money you want to spend  has to be at least $25 with each merchant but no more than $275 with any one merchant.  The total amount of spree money you put in the form has to add up to $500.               

    We will draw a first round winner each Tuesday through August 28.  Those 20 qualifiers will then have their entry forms submitted for the $500 grand prize drawing which will be held in September.  The grand prize winner will receive $500 in gift certificates to the participating businesses.

    More information will be in next week’s first contest form and on the HJ website at  Sales manager Larry Patrick says the contest offers readers an opportunity to get some fabulous merchandise from the participating merchants while spending all of the money “locally” to benefit everyone concerned.

    Be looking for the new contest, “A Shopping Spree for Me” in next week’s edition of the Huerfano Journal. It’ll be fun, easy and rewarding.
