Payment provider eBillme and leading online retailers partner for a consumer contest that will pay one lucky shopper's online order
RYE BROOK, N.Y.-June 15, 2010-Consumers spend more online and buy higher ticket items when given the option to pay securely with cash. This is what retailers have found after adding eBillme, which enables consumers to shop online with cash using online banking or walk-in locations. Now, eBillme and leading online retailers are on the hunt for the biggest cash spender. The shopper who places the largest order on a participating merchant site using the eBillme payment option will have their order paid for by eBillme.
The eBillme "Hey Big Spender" contest, which kicks off today, will pay the bill for the shopper who places the largest eBillme order, up to $5,000. So whether you are shopping for electronics, home furniture, sports equipment, or appliances, eBillme merchants offer a wide selection of products and discounts for your chance to shop, save, and win. Participating retailers include:
Any eBillme purchase made on these retail sites between June 15, 2010 and July 15, 2010 will qualify for the contest. After the contest closes on July 15, the shopper with the highest bill will have their purchase paid, up to $5,000.
"We're excited to give our customers an opportunity to participate in this online shopping contest," says Devoree Miller, General Manager of AJ Madison. "Entering could not be more simple-just choose eBillme as your payment option at our checkout page and you could end up the big winner. eBillme gives consumers who prefer to shop online without credit cards an easy and safe way to pay with cash."
To qualify for a chance to win, shoppers can simply select eBillme as their payment option at one of the participating retailer's online checkout. The order is confirmed with a bill sent to their e-mail address. Consumers simply pay the bill the same way they pay utilities, loans, insurance, and other bills, either through their online bank account or at one of over 75,000 walk-in locations. All participating retailers will also be offering additional savings, coupons, and discounts on eBillme orders during the contest.
