Shaw’s Sizzlin’ Summer Giveaway Ends 8/23/12– Check your tickets!

If you are playing Shaw’s Sizzlin’ Summer Giveaway, please note that it is coming to an end on Thursday, 8/23/12 :( There are still a lot of great prizes to be claimed, including the $1 million! Feeling lucky lately?

You still have time to use the in-store coupons which expire 9/6/12.

Shaw’s is tripling all tickets for the last week. Last time they did this game, I heard through the grapevine that they were practically giving them away towards the end of the game. I went in on the last day in the later evening (8-9pm or so) and they were all out, so I’m sure it depends on your store and timing. I always have terrible timing.

Both mail-in and online entries need to be received by 11:59pm on 9/6/12 for the sweepstakes for $1,000. If no winner comes forward for the $1 million, their will be a second drawing for the $1 million, so get those entries in! (The online entry form is really easy BTW). Below is a list of all the rare tickets, so if you’ve got one, Congratulations!
