Circle K Puts Unique Spin on Heineken's National Holiday Promotion
TEMPE, Ariz. — Circle K Stores put a unique spin on Heineken's national holiday promotion.
The convenience store retailer ran a sweepstakes from Nov. 1 through Dec. 31 that awarded 150 grand-prize winners with $25 prepaid debit cards by purchasing a Heineken SKU and submitting their phone number when prompted at checkout.
To promote the sweepstakes, cooler clings showcased a "treat your circle to the star" message.
