Exchange Sweepstakes to Make Holiday Dreams Come True with $14,500 in Prizes

RELEASE DATE: December 15, 2011

DALLAS – Military shoppers will be dreaming of a green Christmas as the Exchange will award nearly $15,000 in total prizes as part of its latest sweepstakes.

The Exchange will award grand prizes of $2,600 in American Express gift cards to five lucky entrants of its “Coke Holiday Sweepstakes.” In addition to the five grand prizes, 25 first place winners will receive a Coca-Cola Plush Polar Bear.

“This sweepstakes is our way of giving back to shoppers who exercise their benefit by shopping the Exchange,” said the Exchange’s Chief of Staff Col. Tom Ockenfels. “Even those who don’t win the sweepstakes will come out on top at the Exchange with tax-free savings and prices averaging roughly 24 percent below the competition.”

Military shoppers can enter the “Coke Holiday Sweepstakes” at their local Exchange from Dec. 16-29.  No purchase is necessary to enter and the drawing will take place on or about Feb. 10, 2012.
