Check your till receipts!
With only two days to go before their first $250,000 draw, the organisers of the new rewards programme Kachingo! are reminding shoppers to check their Kachingo! tickets.
It's Kachingo!'s first big cash monthly draw this coming Sunday night (November 4), live at 7.30pm on TV2.
Since its roll out just over two weeks ago, Kachingo! draws have comprised $1,000 daily prizes and $10,000 weekly prizes.
"This is the first big one," says spokesperson Mary Vance. "Hang on to your Kachingo! tickets. If you've got all the numbers after Sunday night's draw - and they check out - you can bank a quarter of a million dollars."
This weekend - and for every monthly draw - there are also "hundreds" of second division prizes of $100 and "thousands" of third division prizes of $20, so even if you don't have all the numbers, you could still be a winner
You get Kachingo! Game Line tickets at BP service stations, KFCs north of the Bombay Hills, Woolworths, Big Fresh and Price Chopper supermarkets and Super Liquor stores. To qualify you either purchase Kachingo! promoted products, called Super Lucky Buys or spend the qualifying amount.
Customers can check their Kachingo! numbers on the Internet, in-store, on an 0900 phone number and in major papers on Monday morning and in other ways.
"We also want to remind customers that every game line on their ticket is actually an entry into three draws - a daily draw, a weekly one and the big cash monthly draw of $250,000," says Mary Vance.
"Hang on to your Kachingo! tickets - they're issued with your till receipts - your numbers could come up - you can win just for doing your shopping."
Shoppers can find out more on the Internet at www.kachingo.co.nz , check winning numbers in-store or pick up a brochure when they shop at one of the partners' stores.
