I have a couple of cards that give me offers akin
to entering a "lottery drawing" for using my card.
I'm a little amused by these and wonder if it
actually makes anyone use that card more??
I have little interest in these offers.
Here is one I received today from USAA
((Win Super Bowl LIV tickets courtesy of VISA))
I've won NFL tickets for using my credit card, it was something like this. I forgot I singed up, then got a text saying I won.
A lot of my Visa cards over the years have advertised the chance to win tickets to the Super Bowl just for using the card. I have not received this from USAA yet though....
I am skeptical that this would serve any marketing purpose for them (it would not be logical to change your spending patterns to enter what amounts to a lottery), but if it's easy to do and my normal use of the card would qualify me to win, I'd probably take a couple of minutes to sign up just in case.
Maybe they are approaching it as a cheap way to have a "hook" to send a promotion, with the main goal just being to remind you that you have their card.
Sort of. I did 90-something mail-in entries to IHG's Priceless Surprises a few years ago.
I think I got a few 2k and 1k point "prizes" and the rest were 500 (or whatever the guaranteed minimum was).
~$60 in postage and stationery, and a few hours, for ~$350 of points.
i like playing a contest sometimes for fun. i think usbank has a harley card and you can win a bike out of it, that would be a good one since it's not for a limited time and you can keep playing.
Incidently, there was a commercial during tonights Packers/Bears game and it clearly showed that USAA is a proud supporter of the NFL and they mentioned this promotion.
