BOISE, Idaho, Nov. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The winners of the 2015 Best Road Trip, Ever! Sweepstakes have been announced. One winner from each of Albertsons Companies fourteen divisions has been verified to win a 2015 Ford Escape.
Between August 12 and September 8, more than 70,000 entries were received in our Best Road Trip, Ever! Sweepstakes. Entrants were invited to create a story by captioning four sponsor products that they consider to be "road trip essentials." Each time an entry was submitted on the contest web site, "miles" are added toward the value of the grand prize – a 2015 Ford vehicle. The higher the mile count, the higher the value of the vehicle. This year's contestants logged enough miles to earn the 14 winners a brand new Ford Escape.
"The Best Road Trip, Ever! Campaign has been by far one of our most successful customer engagement campaigns and this was our most successful year!" said Karl Meinhardt, Vice President of Digital & Social Marketing. "Our customers were ready to share the nostalgia and excitement of their road trip with us, and fourteen of them are now driving new cars."
