Ever wonder what it would be like to go shopping with music icon LL Cool J? Have your bedroom made-over by designer Ty Pennington? Hop on the back of an Orange County Chopper with one of the Teutuls, stars of the hit TV show, American Chopper? This holiday season, Sears' shoppers have the chance to win one of 40 once-in-a-lifetime 'golden wishes' and more than 22,000 prizes in "The Golden Wish Ticket Instant Win Game" now through Dec. 24. Hundreds of Sears' shoppers have already won prizes, both in-store and online at http://www.sears.com/.
"'The Golden Wish Ticket Instant Win Game' lets Sears spread the spirit of the holidays to our customers and give back to them with wishes that go beyond their dreams," said Don Hamblen, Sears' chief marketing officer. "It's especially important this year that Sears continues to be a place where families cannot only find the best prices and merchandise, but also celebrate the holidays with a chance to win a 'Golden Wish,' too."
More than 30 million Golden Wish tickets will be distributed in-stores and online while supplies last. Customers peel and reveal the ticket to determine if they've struck gold. Online at http://www.sears.com/ LL Cool J, Ty Pennington, and the Teutuls, take players on an entertaining search for the Golden Wish ticket. Players simply select their favorite celebrity character, which "jumps" into the wish bag to help find the winning ticket. Players can pick the ticket they find in the bag or send them back in for another try. Thousands of tickets reveal instant prizes and savings coupons on Sears' merchandise.
Sears shoppers have already won MP3 players, jewelry, gift cards and much more, including DeVonne Whiting from Indiana, who won the 'Man's Basement Paradise' Golden Wish Ticket prize. Whiting won a complete entertainment package, including a refrigerator, microwave, beverage center and pool table. "It's an amazing holiday gift," said Whiting.
