- The 10 Days of Giveaways social media contest will award cash prizes to participants who answer daily questions on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
- For every dollar given away, Shaw will donate an equivalent amount to a registered charity of the winner’s choice
CALGARY, Alberta, Dec. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Shaw Communications’ Freedom Mobile is taking its 100 GB Big Binge Bonus offer even further this holiday season with the launch of 10 Days of Giveaways — a contest that asks Canadians to share how they use their data for a chance to win prizes totaling $10,000.
Launching today through December 15, Canadians can enter the 10 Days of Giveaways contest by following Freedom Mobile’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts, and participating in the daily challenges posted to each social media platform. Freedom Mobile will also be giving each daily contest winner the opportunity to make a charitable donation matching the dollar amount they won to a registered charity of their choice.
The $10,000 being given out throughout the contest represents what Canadians could pay in overage fees if they used 100 gigabytes worth of extra data from other providers, who charge up to $1 per additional megabyte, or a staggering $100 per additional gigabyte. The 10 Days of Giveaways contest leverages Freedom Mobile’s unprecedented Big Binge Bonus offer — giving eligible customers 100 GB of bonus high-speed LTE data on select plans when they get a new handset on a two-year term. Freedom Mobile does not charge overage fees when customers exceed their data plan.
“Canadians deserve to connect with friends and family without worrying about expensive data overages,” said Paul McAleese, President, Wireless, Shaw Communications. “We want to shine a spotlight on the ways people use their devices differently when they have an abundance of data. Our contest helps underscore the true value Freedom Mobile provides Canadians while giving them the opportunity to win great cash prizes and donate to charity.”
