Local shoppers at the Creston Hy-Vee location who swipe their Fuel Saver Plus Perks cards at the register between now and April 2 are eligible to win in Hy-Vee’s latest giveaway promotion.

In the fall, Hy-Vee stores across the state gave away a brand new Ford F-150 to local winners. Eula and Duane Dolecheck of Creston won the truck from the Creston store in November.

After seeing the success of that promotion, Hy-Vee quickly began putting the wheels in motion for a new giveaway.

This time, the grand prize is $10,000 in cash. In addition, each of the 12 weeks through the life of the promotion, Creston Hy-Vee will give away 10 $100 Hy-Vee gift cards to shoppers who swiped their Fuel Saver Plus Perks cards at the store.

“Just like last fall when we gave away the Ford F-150 truck, we’re offering a huge giveaway to one lucky winner who shops at Creston Hy-Vee,” said Jeremy Odem, store director. “It’ll be a total of $22,000 given away through the life of the promotion.”

Feedback received following the truck giveaway spurred the new promotion.

“We had just amazing feedback about the truck promotion, and one of the things when we were coming out of the promotion was some people didn’t want to drive a Ford,” Odem said. “But, everybody likes money. Who couldn’t use $10,000 right now?”

Creston Hy-Vee is one of 27 Hy-Vee stores participating in the promotion. A local shopper from each location will be electronically drawn as the winner at the conclusion of the promotion.

Once again, shoppers who swipe their Fuel Saver Plus Perks cards on Saturdays will earn two entries into the drawing.

“We want to continue to create some excitement in Creston and energize folks to want to come shop at Hy-Vee,” Odem said. “We want to get folks in and see what we can do for them at Creston Hy-Vee. We feel we’re the best grocer in town.”

The contest is also used as a way to sign people up for the Fuel Saver Plus Perks card.

Benefits of signing up for the card include saving money on gas at Casey’s General Store locations, saving money on select items at Hy-Vee each week and receiving special deals and coupons in the mail and via email.

Plus, using the Fuel Saver Plus Perks card is the only way to gain entry into the store’s promotions like the cash giveaway.

“It’s pretty cool to be a part of something where you give away such a prize that makes people so happy,” Odem said. “Eula and Duane Dolecheck won the truck and I see them every week still. They come in the store and it’s almost like they just won the truck again. Just the opportunity to participate in something like this is amazing because it creates so much excitement.”

The last day to gain entry into the contest is Sunday, April 2.
