WATERLOO, ON, July 6, 2018 /CNW/ - As this year's Select Sweepstakes contest comes to a close, eight lucky Economical Select group members are the winners of more than $100,000 in prizes. Throughout the year, winners got a call from their group insurance broker, telling them they had won a spectacular prize.
"It was so surreal picking up a call from my broker office, McLean & Shaw Insurance Inc., telling me I was the proud owner of a brand new Lexus NX," said Rick Tiedemann, a group member of the Edmonton Executive Association. "I specifically chose to get my insurance through McLean & Shaw because of my belief in the way the owners run their business and because past experiences with Economical Select had me looking specifically for coverage through this provider. Obviously it was a fantastic decision on both accounts."
The other seven prize winners include Joan Hadgraft (St. Catharines, Ont.), Mark Bury (Markham, Ont.), and Emmerson Bader (Calgary, Alta.), who each won a $5,000 travel voucher, and Andrew Hardy (Miramichi, N.B.), Amanda Fisher (Calgary, Alta.), and Matloob Ahmed (Mississauga, Ont.) who each won a $10,000 travel voucher. All winners are group members from across Canada and simply called their brokers about their group car and home insurance to be entered into the 2018 Select Sweepstakes contest.
"This is by far the biggest prize I have ever won," said Andrew Hardy, a group member of CUPE. "$10,000 will help send my family and I on our dream vacation to Walt Disney World in Florida. We could have only dreamed about travelling there, but now thanks to Higgins General Insurance Ltd. and Economical Select, we can turn our dreams into a reality."
The fourth annual Select Sweepstakes contest is run nationally by Economical Select, one of Canada's leading providers of group car and home insurance. The contest was exclusively for members of an approved Economical Select group and were eligible if they called for a quote, provided a renewal date, or are an existing customer who asked to be included.
"It's so gratifying giving away prizes like this to deserving group members and to work closely with our broker partners during the contest," said David Fitzpatrick, Division Vice-President, Economical Select. "Not only is this a way to give back to our brokers and their valued customers, it's also a rewarding experience being part of the chance of a lifetime for our policyholders."
