Million Dollar Media Delivers over $2.3 Million Payout to Art Van Furniture after Customers Cash in on one of Largest Weather-Contest Payouts in U.S. History
Thousands of customers received free furniture thanks to retailer’s “Let It Snow” promotion backed by Million Dollar Media
April 21, 2015 (Woodbridge, NJ) – Insured contest and promotions company Million Dollar Media, LLC, has announced over a $2.3 million payout to Art Van Furniture after a weather rebate promotion favored its customers throughout the Midwest with FREE furniture. Million Dollar Media backed Art Van’s “Let It Snow” offer, which promised its customers a full rebate on furniture purchases if more than 3 inches of snow accumulated in the Chicago, IL; Fort Wayne, IN; or Toledo, OH markets on Sunday, February 1 (the day of the Big Game).
More than 2,200 customers purchased furniture during the promotion, and were hoping Mother Nature would “Let It Snow”. And did it ever! After a record 16 inches of snow pummeled Chicago, 9 inches covered Fort Wayne and 10 inches blanketed Toledo, every Art Van Furniture customer in the Midwest celebrated more than touchdowns and were overjoyed with free merchandise.
“Our goal was to usher in winter with fanfare, fun and lots of free furniture,” Art Van Furniture stated. “They say good things come in threes, and 3 inches of snow, combined with millions of dollars in savings, is most definitely a good thing for our Chicago, Fort Wayne, and Toledo guests.”
Art Van Furniture customer Kendra Geiger was one of the winners. “I was pretty excited. I was thinking ‘All I need is three inches,’ and they were predicting six to ten. I think we got nine,” said Geiger. “I was looking out the window and watching it pound us with snow and I was, like, ‘Oh my gosh, is this really happening? What are the odds?’ I’m going to save more than two grand, which is just crazy.”
Geiger continued, “I still need to get some other stuff for my apartment, so I’ll probably get a nicer television now. I don’t really like snow, to be honest, but that was the best snow day ever.”
