If you’ve ever watched Bullitt and thought you could totally be as cool as Steve McQueen, here’s your chance to win the car that could make that a reality. Costco Canada is giving one lucky Canadian Costco member a brand new 2015 Ford Mustang V6 Fastback with their latest giveaway. All you have to do is enter online, and you’re in with a chance. How could you pass that up?
The 2015 Mustang marks the sixth generation of the iconic car that has been loved since the 1964 1/2 model came out 50 years ago. This will be the first production year in the new generation of the Mustang, which means that years of thought have gone into reworking the design and styling. The new version is wider, has more interior passenger area, has a specially designed independent rear suspension, has three engine options including a new EcoBoost engine, plus the six speed manual will come with paddle shifters. In addition to those design changes, the newest Mustang will come with keyless entry and push button start, and you can also get the SYNC system for voice control of various functions as well as the BLIS blind-spot and reversing warning alerts. To me the look really is a nod to the classic Fastbacks from the 60s, like the one driven by McQueen in Bullitt, that was the epitome of cool.
So, if you want to be that cool, all you have to do is enter online by June 30, 2014. You can enter through the Costco Canada contest webpage or their Facebook page, then you will have 10 other ways that you can get additional entries; only 11 total entries per person though. As with most contests, entering is easy, it’s the winning that is the tricky part. Since there is just one single prize, the 2015 Ford Mustang V6 Fastback (approximate retail value of CAD$30,000), you will want to enter as many times as you can to up your chances. Entry really is very easy and you don’t even have to answer any tricky questions or anything like that. The most difficult piece of information, that you probably won’t know off the top of your head, will most likely be your Costco membership number, so have it handy when you fill in your entry.The form will take you about a minute to fill out, so there’s no excuse not to enter. Honestly, the worst part is the CAPTCHA image they use to verify that entrants are real people. You can get additional entries if you sign up to become a Costco Insider (Costco Canada emails), “Like” Costco Canada’s Facebook page, post/invite on your Facebook page , Tweet about the contest, or share with friends via a personal web link; only eleven total entries per person though.
For this giveaway, Costco Canada has added a cool new way to get five extra entries. This week you can pick up a PIN number from your local Costco warehouse and then use the PIN online to get your extra entries. Only catch is that they are only giving out the PINs this week! There’s no purchase necessary to get the PINs, but when the PINs are all given out, there won’t be any more offered. So, if you want to get one of those, you should probably get over to your closest Costco store sooner rather than later.
Of course, there are a few rules and regulations that you should be aware of before you enter. The big ones are that you need to be a current Costco member, a resident of Canada with a valid driver’s license and valid insurance. Plus, you need to have reached the age of majority in your province or territory. If you win, you’ll have to answer, unaided, a mathematical skill-testing question. You can find all of the contest rules and details at the contest website. The winner will be chosen at random on July 3, 2014 in Ottawa and the winner will be notified by email and phone within 10 days of the drawing.
So, seriously, what are you waiting for? The contest closes on June 30, 2014, so don’t lag about before you enter. Get over to the Costco Canada contest webpage and enter to win right now! And then, go to the Costco Canada Facebook page and enter again. And then, invite a few friends to enter so that you can get even more entries. Good luck!
UPDATE 2014.06.06: For those of you that are having problems figuring out where to enter your PIN that you received from the warehouse, hopefully this will help you out a bit. First, you MUST sign up for your initial entry at the Costco Canada contest webpage. Once you have done that you will be shown a screen that has links for all of the other ways that you can get entries, including the PINs. The option to enter the PIN is the bottom of the four additional entry types (you can see that in the picture). Clicking that will take you to a page where you can enter your 6-digit PIN that you received at the warehouse from May 26 – June 1, 2014. I think there was some confusion over the need to do the initial entry, but hopefully this has cleared it up. You MUST enter the contest initially, and only then will you be shown the additional ways that you can enter, including the PINs.
