“I had quit filling out sweepstakes forms,” said longtime Sprint customer Daniel, “because I would never win anything.”
Good thing Daniel changed his mind when he saw the “Just for You” notification pop up as he was paying his bill online in October. Because today he is driving a brand new 2018 Jeep® Cherokee Overland as the grand prize winner of the Sprint Just For You Sweepstakes.
Daniel, 44, a former life insurance and bank mortgage underwriter in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, also won a Samsung Galaxy Note8 and received a check to cover taxes and other fees for the new vehicle.
The father of two received notification by email that he’d won, but, of course, he was skeptical.
“I didn’t believe it,” he said, “but my sister said it looked real to her. I called Kelly (the Sprint contact for the contest) and put her on speakerphone so my sister could ask the questions I wouldn’t be able to think of. Then Kelly put me in touch with the store manager in Wauwatosa, who said, ‘Oh, yes, it’s real.’”
Daniel showed up in his new Jeep Cherokee this past Friday at the Sprint store in Wauwatosa (3860 N. 124th St.) to pick up his new phone and check.
Joining the fun were Keri Price, manager-Base Marketing; Jenny Holloway, IL/WI Retail and Indirect; Mike McCauley, director-Indirect Distribution IL/WI; and David Gidelski, director-Retail Distribution IL/WI.
Daniel, a Sprint customer since 2003, said he has never thought about changing carriers.
“I love the customer service, and any time I’ve ever had a problem, it was resolved quickly,” he said. “I’ve never even thought about leaving Sprint.”
The “Just For You” customer sweepstakes took place from Oct. 21 to Nov. 2. Sprint customers could enter online or via Twitter. In addition, to kick off the contest on Oct. 21 customers received 10 entries for adding a new line of service and/or upgrade in a Sprint company-owned store.
This is one contest where loyalty paid off as faithful customers received extra entries –one for every year their account has been with Sprint. Daniel was able to take advantage of this and received an extra 10 entries into the contest just for being a loyal, long-term customer.
