The Take L.L.Bean Visa Everywhere Giveaway ran from June 28-December 31, 2013 and cardmembers automatically received entries in the Giveaway each time they used their L.L.Bean Visa card issued by Barclaycard US for purchases. Cardmembers earned 10 entries for every travel, lodging or dining purchase, and one (1) entry for all other purchases using their L.L.Bean Visa card. Entries accumulated so the more cardmembers used their card, the more chances they had to win.
"This was a really exciting promotion for our L.L.Bean Visa Cardmembers as evidenced by the increase in their everywhere spend," said Susan Schmidt, head of Retail Partnerships at Barclaycard US. "We're thrilled we could provide an engaging offer during busy summer and holiday seasons when our L.L.Bean Cardmembers incur a lot of expense on restaurants, hotels and air travel."
