I have spent the last three mornings doing a Utility Warehouse Win A Mini Free Prize Draw event at a local Garden Centre.
As mentioned in a previous post it’s a fairly simple idea – the company gives a Mini as the star prize for an annual prize draw , people fill in their details and have the choice of answering some questions about their Utility usage .
On previous events we had some comments about Minis – ie. ” Bet it’s not a real one !” , ” It’s not a Mini it’s a BMW ! ” so you can imagine my confidence when I knew that this time the company had amended the rules and offered £10,000 as a cash alternative if an entrant did not want to take the Mini as the star prize .
But , as usual – there’s always one – speaking to someone yesterday and mention that the star prize is either a new BMW Mini One or £10,000 cash and I get the reply ” I ride a push bike – can I have a push bike instead ?”
