LARGO, Fla. — Coupon distributor Valpak took to Facebook last month to ask consumers to show what they love for the chance to win cash in the first ever Facebook promotion featured on the front of the Valpak envelope.
Since the "Show Us What You Love" Sweepstakes started last month, Valpak has had an overwhelming response. Photographs of adorable babies, furry puppies and sunny beaches filled with families – have been sent in through the Valpak Facebook contest.
The promotion continues through March 8 and will award two grand prize winners $1,000 each to spend on what they love. In addition, 50 entrants will instantly win $50 during the sweepstakes period.
This is Valpak's first ever envelope promotion that drives consumers to Facebook to enter to win. Fans submit photos as part of their entry and they could be featured on the Valpak Facebook page and on Valpak.com as the fan photo of the week.
Winners of Valpak's "Show Us What You Love" say:
