    DENVER, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- For one lucky Web shopper, tax day is
 anything but depressing this year.  eBags.com (www.ebags.com), the world's
 largest online retailer of bags and accessories for all lifestyles, is
 wrapping up its "Bag $100,000" contest, which had been running on the web site
 since January, by awarding $100,000 to Carl Mead of Lebanon, New Jersey.
     A prize team toting balloons and banners swarmed Mead's home first thing
 this morning to award the grand prize -- making this tax season a whole lot
 brighter for Mead and his family!  The family also gets to keep the Samsonite
 Classic 1000 hard-side suitcase that had been featured in the contest -- a
 bonus prize worth an additional $1,200.
     eBags.com, which earlier this year awarded one million frequent flier
 miles to one lucky winner in a separate contest, created "Bag $100,000" as a
 way to engage shoppers and give back to loyal customers.  The company plans to
 run additional contests and promotions throughout the year.
