DARTMOUTH, NS, Nov. 20, 2014 /CNW/ - All Brian MacKeigan did was pick up the phone and ask insurance broker Macdonald Chisholm Trask Insurance for a quote. Not only is he now saving $1,000 this year on his home and auto insurance, he is the proud owner of a 2015 Ford Escape compliments of Select Sweepstakes.
The Select Sweepstakes campaign is run in partnership between Economical Select, one of Canada's leading providers of group home and auto insurance, and 55 insurance brokers across Canada, offering eligible group members an opportunity to win great prizes (there is also an alternative method of entering the Select Sweepstakes campaign for people who are not members of eligible groups at the time of entry, but who otherwise meet the criteria to join an eligible group (for full rules visit: www.selectsweepstakes.com/rules)). As a member of the Nova Scotia Chamber of Commerce group through his employer, Praxair, Mr. MacKeigan was eligible for exclusive group pricing in addition to being entered into the sweepstakes.
At 3 p.m. today, Mr. MacKeigan will be presented the keys to his new vehicle at MacPhee Ford at 580 Portland St, Dartmouth.
"A neighbour referred me to James Mizzi at Macdonald Chisholm Trask after I expressed my frustration over insurance premium increases for less coverage," said MacKeigan. "In a brief and surprisingly painless conversation with James, he understood all my relevant insurance requirements and got back to me with combined savings of over $1000 a year for better home and auto insurance coverage than I previously had. I am so happy I have recommended him to several friends. He even sent me a Tim's card thanking me for my business and referrals. Imagine…saving $1000, an insurance professional on my side and a new car. I am extremely pleased!"
"Getting a quote is easy," said David Fitzpatrick, Economical's divisional vice-president of Economical Select. "We are offering this Select Sweepstakes contest to reward people for just calling in for a quote. There are three grand prizes: the 2015 Ford Escape, a 2015 Toyota Rav4, and a 2015 BMW 320i sedan. Other prizes include 12 16GB Wi-Fi tablets, four $2,500 travel certificates and more than 100 $250 gas cards."
"I am delighted that one of our Atlantic Canada clients has won a grand prize from this national sweepstakes," said MCT president and CEO Michael Brien. "The advertising materials supplied by Economical Select brought a fresh approach and instills confidence in clients that they are a strong contender in the group insurance marketplace with enhanced product offerings and competitive pricing."
