Ten year old Alison Healy wins back to school rafflePOSTED: 08/30/11 12:39 PM
St. Maarten – During the month of August, Chippie’s youth program Chipster, held a back to school special for members doing their back to school shopping. Any Chipster member making a purchase of $75 or more at Office 1 Superstore, Van Dorp or Klass Electronics would instantly win great prizes provided by various Chipster Buddies – companies that take part in the program by offering special discounts and bonuses to participants when they shop as their establishments. Chipster Buddies Bubble Tea, KFC, Extravagance Braids, Domino’s Pizza, The Movie Stop all provided prizes as well as, of course, Chippie.
In addition to the instant prizes, Chipsters were also eligible to participate in a raffle to win a Coby Tablet courtesy of Klass Electronics. The winner of this grand prize was announced last Friday on Laser 101.1FM during The J-Zone by host Party Dude Jason. 10 year-old Allison Healy was the winner.
This Hillside Christian School Grade 5 student became eligible to win while purchasing her back to school supplies at Office 1 Superstore this summer. “I was buying all my school supplies when the lady at the counter explained the promotion and the Chipster program to me,” Allison said. “So I went to Pete’s Photo and signed up fast. I got my card right away and went back to Office 1 to buy my stuff. I’m so happy I did.”
Sign-up for the Chipster campaign can be done for free by visiting Pete’s Photo on the Bush Road. Participants need to be under 26 years of age and have a Chippie phone. Advantages of the program are that members call each other at a reduced rate per minute and members also get discounts and special offers at participating Chipster Buddies; they include Domino’s Pizza, KFC, Bubble Tea, Sun Nails and many more.
