TireVan Corp. is celebrating Christmas a little early this year. The mobile tire installation busines has launched a regional online contest that will award 12 winners an automotive prize from TireVan; one prize will be given away on each of the 12 days of Christmas, beginning on Christmas Day.
Called "TireVan's 12 Days of Christmas," the contest is open to residents in the Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia, Pa., metropolitan areas.
Residents can visit TireVan's Facebook page to enter the contest. A single entry provides a chance to win on any of the 12 days of the contest. To increase the likelihood of winning, participants can return on following days and enter again, once per day, as well as share the contest with Facebook friends. For each friend who enters the contest, participants will receive an additional contest entry.
The contest will mirror the Old English celebration of the 12 Days of Christmas, beginning on Christmas Day and lasting through the Twelfth Night, Jan. 5, 2012. On each of the 12 days, TireVan will randomly select a winner from all the entries to receive that day's gift.
Gifts increase in value each day. The grand prize, awarded on the final day, is a free set of tires plus mobile installation, road force balancing, three-year hazard insurance, Michelin windshield wiper blades and a tire rotation and balance gift certificate -- an estimated $1,000 value.
Other gifts include rotation certificates, windshield wiper blades and TireVan gift certificates averaging hundreds of dollars, as well as several sets of free tires, fully installed.
All prizes will be awarded as certificates and will be valid for two years.
"In our previous contests, we've seen an outpouring of need from residents of the Washington and Philadelphia metro regions, so we felt a strong desire to give back even more during this holiday season," says Phil Pifer, CEO and president.
"As our business grows, giving back to the communities that we serve is important to us at TireVan. And we don't think there's a better time to give than Christmas."
