They Beat Their MEGA #OhmHour Goal, We Gave Them Each $1000 Amazon Gift Cards

Scoring $1000 for one hour of unplugging is probably the best paying gig around!

A handful of OhmConnect users got lucky this week when their energy-saving skills paid off, scoring them each a $1000 Amazon Gift Card in last week’s MEGA Summer prize draw.

Some had been OhmConnect users for a few years and others as little as a few weeks but they all did what it took to be eligible in the draw.

And we couldn’t be happier to send these prizes out the door.

“This prize couldn't have come at a better time!” said one winner, Hannah. “After moving back home from Germany and starting practically from scratch, this will go a long way towards helping us set up our new place!”

“I am raising my 2 grandchildren. I will use my gift card to buy items they need,” said another winner, Alena.

 "I am expecting a baby boy in October 2nd week, and I am planning to spend the money for buying  stuff for him" said winner, Sujatha. "OhmConnect not only helped us to save energy but also we enjoyed having quality family time by taking walks together during our #OhmHour."

“I'm going to spend the gift on getting something nice for my wife!” said winner, Shayan.

For one winner, the prize comes after a lifetime of being concerned about energy efficiency.

“I have been known as the "lights control freak" in my house because I am always turning lights off as I walk through empty rooms in the house where the lights have been left on by others,” said winner, Sky.  “This prize is kinda like the pay off for my suffering from years of people getting mad at me for turning the lights off.”

“My family's home in Kenwood, where my father lived, burned to the ground in the wildfires of October 2017. Maybe we will use the money to get my dad something he could use since he lost all his stuff in the fire. Fortunately my dad is safe and healthy and he will build a new house, but maybe we can get him something that will bring him joy.”

Want to be eligible to win a MEGA Summer prize this season?

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. If you’re not yet an OhmConnect user, get registered. Not only could you be eligible to win a big prize, but you’ll be entered into a program that actually pays you to save energy on a weekly basis. Awesome, right?
  2. Keep an eye out for #OhmHour notifications you receive each week
  3. If you spot a MEGA #OhmHour in your inbox, take a close look at the goal set for you. (They will something along the lines of "get 500 points when you use less than X.X kWh”. These goals are tailored to your own personal energy use, so everyone is given a reasonable stretch goal.)
  4. If you achieve your goal, you will automatically be entered into that week's draw and could be randomly selected as the reward recipient
  5. Tune in on Sunday at 5pm to OhmConnect’s Facebook page to watch the live broadcast of the winner, alongside other important MEGA Summer updates (Pro tip: to get a notification when we go live, ‘like’ the Facebook page ahead of time.)
  6. If you don’t win this week’s prize but you successfully meet your MEGA #OhmHour goals three times during the MEGA Summer promotion, you’ll be entered to win our end-of-summer grand prize of $100,000.
