Many of you have big, big plans for Black Friday, trying to find some great holiday season deals. You might even be heading out to visit stores that open at midnight on Friday! If you’re anywhere near a Macy’s in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, or Boston, make sure you stop there first, and look for the hospitality stations which are co-sponsored by Macy’s and Chevrolet!
“Chevrolet wants to acknowledge those who devote their time and energy to making the holiday season memorable for families and friends,” said Phil Caruso, national promotions manager for Chevrolet. “We’re excited to spend the holidays with an American icon like Macy’s.”
2013 Chevrolet Malibu sedans and 2013 Chevrolet Traverse crossovers will be used as hospitality stations and will be open from 10 p.m. November 22 (that’s Thanksgiving night) until Macy’s opening time at midnight on November 23.
While Black Friday consumers warm up inside the Malibu or Traverse, roving Chevrolet Brand Ambassadors will “hold” their spots in line until they return. Consumers in line also can enter the national sweepstakes using Brand Ambassadors’ portable tablet computers.
In addition, consumers can enter the Chevrolet/Macy’s Holiday Promotion sweepstakes at 10 mall store locations from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday through Sunday, from November 23 to mid-December. Nationwide, consumers may enter by visiting www.Chevrolet.com/Macys beginning Thursday.
One Grand Prize winner will receive a wish for their family – a choice of a Chevrolet Traverse or Malibu; a trip for them and a friend including a two-night stay in New York City plus a Macy’s shopping spree just for them; and a $1,000 Macy’s gift card.
Besides the Black Friday Hospitality Stations, other elements of the promotion run from November 23 to mid-December and include:
Chevrolet Concierge Services: To save time and reduce stress, Chevrolet will offer Macy’s shoppers in Los Angeles a concierge service. Designated Chevrolet Malibus with drivers will offer to transport customers to their cars and even load their packages – all free of charge.
Holiday Wish Machine With Macy’s: In 10 Macy’s mall locations – Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Seattle and Houston – shoppers can make three wishes at a special vehicle kiosk display: a new Chevrolet Malibu or Traverse for their family; a trip for them and a friend – which includes a two-night stay in New York City plus a Macy’s shopping spree; or a wish of a $1,000 Macy’s gift card. Those who make a wish for a friend can share the experience via a custom message on their personal Facebook page or by sending an email.
But wait, there’s more!
I have a $100 Macy’s gift card to give away! (That’ll help with some of the holiday shopping, won’t it?) I’m going to make this giveaway quick and easy, too. All you have to do to win is leave a comment telling me about the favorite holiday gift you’ve ever GIVEN, and why it’s your favorite. I can’t wait to read your stories! The deadline for leaving your comment/entry is 11:59 Central time this Friday night (November 23). Comments left after that time won’t count. The winner will be chosen randomly on Saturday and will need to respond to my “You’re a winner!” email by Sunday night with a mailing address so I can get the gift card to you ASAP!
But wait, there’s even more!
Bonus: if the winner happens to live within a fifty mile radius of Chicago city limits, he/she will also get a free week in a Chevrolet Malibu! (Dates for the Malibu loan will be determined jointly by the winner and Chevrolet, and the vehicle is subject to change at Chevrolet’s discretion.)
Happy commenting, and good luck!
