In Celebration of Labor Day, Banana Republic Invites Shoppers in for a Chance to Win Their Annual Salary
This Labor Day weekend, Banana Republic will be giving shoppers a chance to win their annual salary simply by walking into any Banana Republic store in the U.S. or Canada.*
For the second year running, Banana Republic will be holding the “Win Your Salary” sweepstakes where one grand prize winner will be awarded a one-time payment match of their annual salary (up to $100,000), with a minimum award of $50,000.
Beginning Friday, September 2 and ending Monday, September 5, shoppers can walk into any one of Banana Republic’s U.S. or Canada stores* to receive a game piece that will award them 30 percent, 50 percent, $30 or $50 off their purchases during Labor Day Weekend. One game piece will award one lucky shopper the grand prize of one year’s salary. No prior purchase necessary to receive a game piece.
“Banana Republic is dedicated to creating beautiful, modern work wear for our customers,” says Jack Calhoun, President, Banana Republic. “We want to reward our customers and commemorate Labor Day by offering one lucky winner their yearly salary to spend however they please.”
Banana Republic’s Facebook fan poll asked, “What would you do if you won your salary and had a year off?” Respondents indicated that they would: “take a dream vacation” (54% of respondents), “save for a rainy day,” (13% of respondents) or “SHOP!” (11% of respondents).
Sara Egert, last year’s “Win Your Salary” winner, used the opportunity to continue her Feng Shui training, enrolling at a special school in California. She also took time to travel with friends and support her favorite nonprofit organizations. “To truly have a financially worry-free year was a life changing experience, and one I will never forget,” Egert said.
