Win a $150 Energy-Saving Gift Card to buy products from your favorite local store!
We’re in the midst of celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the Iowa Association of Electric Cooperatives – plus it’s National Co-op Month – so we’re going to give away duplicate prizes this month – one for online entries and one for mail-in entries. As usual, most readers should enter the contest online. However, if you don’t have a computer or access to the Internet, you can enter by mail for this month’s contest only. At the end of the month, we’ll award one $150 Energy-Saving Gift Card to a lucky, randomly chosen co-op member from the group of online entries – plus a duplicate prize to a randomly chosen winner from the mail-in entries. Please note that the mail-in contest is only for folks who don’t have a computer or Internet access. If you own a computer and enter the mail-in contest – or enter both contests – you’ll be disqualified.
If you're one of our winners, you'll be able to purchase energy-smart products at your local hardware store, lumberyard, big-box retailer or other business to buy $150 worth of products of your choice. If you want to go big, buy a ceiling fan or a smart thermostat. Or choose a variety of less-expensive products that will have a big impact on reducing your power bills, such as caulking and weather-stripping for windows and doors, a motion-sensing security light and an insulating blanket for an older water heater. As a bonus, the energy-saving selections you make with your gift card should continue to pay off for many years to come!
Here's how to enter
If you own a computer, mobile phone or other device to connect to the Internet: Fill out the entry form below at the Living with Energy in Iowa website (www.livingwithenergyiniowa.com). The deadline is Oct. 31, 2017.
If you do not have access to the Internet, enter the contest by mail. Send a postcard or letter with your name, address, daytime phone number and electric cooperative’s name – postmarked by Oct. 31, 2017 – to:
To win, you must be a member-owner of one of Iowa’s electric cooperatives that’s a member of the Iowa Association of Electric Cooperatives. There’s no obligation associated with entering, we don’t share entrant information with anyone and multiple entries from the same account will be disqualified. (If you have multiple accounts, you may enter once per account.)
As with our other contests, to win you must be a member-owner in good standing at one of Iowa’s electric cooperatives that’s a member of the Iowa Association of Electric Cooperatives. To enter your name in this month’s contest, complete and submit this Entry Form by the last day of the month of the issue date (e.g., Oct. 31 for the October issue). The contest runs for the complete month of the magazine's issue month, so you may enter as early as the first of the month – even if you haven't yet received that month's issue of the magazine in the mail. All entries are purged at midnight on the last day of the month, when the next contest begins, so you must enter every month to be eligible to win. There’s no obligation associated with entering, and we don’t share entrant information with anyone.
Please enter the contest only once per electric cooperative account; if you enter multiple times, you’ll be disqualified – unless you have multiple accounts at the same or different electric cooperatives, in which case you may enter once per account. We’ll pick a winner at random and publish the winners's name in an upcoming issue.
