Online Lender Announces Their First Holiday Contest

December 17, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News, an online payday loan provider that has been in business since 1999, announces their first holiday contest. The online competition is designed to increase December sales, a percentage of which will be donated to the American Cancer Society, while having some fun in the process. The competition invites contestants to enter by submitting their email address in a form on the contest webpage. Contestants are also encouraged to share the contest with others, for which additional contest entries (i.e. bonus points) are awarded. Contest prizes include a 16GB Apple iPad, a 8GB Apple iPod Nano, and a $100 American Express gift card.

Earning bonus points can be achieved by spreading the word about the contest online. Upon entry, contestants are provided their own unique contest website link that they can then share online in a variety of ways. Online sharing methods include posting their link on social media websites like Facebook and Twitter, emailing their contest link to friends and family, and even creating a video about the contest and uploading it to YouTube.

"This year has been a difficult year for a lot of people," said Semisi Katoa, "Our holiday contest is a way for people to have some fun and it allows us to spread around some holiday cheer. By helping us spread the word about the contest, contestants can earn additional bonus points (or entries), which increases their chances of winning a prize. Plus, it's an opportunity to help us make a difference because the contest is also designed to help us increase our donation amount in the fight against cancer, which is going to be based on this months sales."

The deadline for entries is December 31, 2010. Contest winners will be announced via email and they will be posted on the contest website the week of January 3, 2011. Full contest details can be found at:
