EMERYVILLE, Calif., Dec. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- (Nasdaq: JMBA) -- As Jamba Juice's Fall "Feel Good Campaign" draws to a close, the company announced today it will be bringing a feel good lift to Chicago Ice Skaters this Saturday with a surprise event at the Millennium Park Ice Rink. Beginning at noon, Bananaman, Jamba's "Feel Good Ambassador" will offer free skate rentals to the first 200 guests along with a tasty lunch on Jamba Juice - admission to the rink, as always, is free. Visitors will also receive Jamba Feel Good Bucks - certificates worth anywhere from $1 towards a Jamba Juice product purchase to $10,000 in cash.
While skaters glide, spin and jump for free, Jamba Juice will serve its delicious and better-for-you Grab-n-Go items including wraps, salads, and sandwiches - all free of artificial preservatives, artificial flavors, and high fructose corn syrup. And to really satisfy that much deserved appetite, Jamba Juice will also be giving away tasty All Fruit(TM) Smoothies--made with 100% fruit and fruit juices providing vital nutrients, vitamins and energy to keep you feeling good during a fun-filled day of ice skating.
Launched in October, Jamba's Feel Good Campaign is a three month, multi-part promotion designed to recreate and share the great feeling customers get when enjoying Jamba Juice products. Supported by three complementary initiatives - the "Feel Good Bucks," Jamba's "Feel Good Moment" sweepstakes and a series of fun, unexpected "Feel Good Events" including today's event at Millennium Park, the campaign embraces the excitement customers have for Jamba Juice products and blends up another way to keep them feeling good.
"As a company dedicated to helping people feel good, we wanted to share the holiday feel good spirit with our fans in Chicago," said James D. White, President and CEO of Jamba Juice Company. "We know how much people enjoy ice skating during this season--it's a great way for families and friends to be active together, creating memories that will last a lifetime. We hope to be a part of those happy memories, by giving fans a complimentary ice skating experience and a tasty Jamba Juice lunch."
Jamba Juice plans to give away 30 million Jamba 'Feel Good Bucks' during the course of this promotion. The individual value of the Feel Good Buck will be revealed by a Jamba team member when entered at a Jamba register, bringing an element of surprise to lucky Jamba Juice customers. Bucks may be used at participating Jamba Juice locations to purchase any Jamba Juice product, including the new Grab-n-Go wraps, salads, sandwiches, California Flatbreads(TM) and Fruit Tea Infusions(TM). Some 'Feel Good Bucks' can be redeemed for Jamba gift cards valued between $5-$25; others for cash prizes ranging from $50 to the $10,000 grand prize.
Coinciding with the Feel Good Bucks, Jamba Juice will encourage customers to win their ultimate 'Feel Good Moment' by filling out a sweepstakes form--located on the back of their buck and in-store--and submitting it at their local Jamba Juice store. Whether it's a trip to an exotic destination, supporting their favorite cause or paying off a student loan--Jamba Juice will fulfill any wish up to $10,000 and within legal limits. Three lucky winners will be randomly selected and announced throughout the campaign.
Jamba's Feel Good Moments campaign will run in participating stores until January 4, 2010. Download a Feel Good Buck and learn more information about the campaign at www.jambajuice.com.
