Win Your Grocery Bill Paid for 6 Months in This Week’s Prize #OhmHour Giveaway!
Lobster bisque? Don't mind if we do. Say goodbye to stress when your grocery bills are on us!
When we asked OhmConnect users in a survey last year what kinds of prizes they’d like to see during MEGA Summer, a number of folks said that ‘help paying my bills’ would be their first choice.
With groceries coming in at around $125 per person per month in a household, the family grocery bill can really add up!
This week’s Prize #OhmHour Giveaway is your grocery bill paid for six months. Will you be the lucky chosen one?
If not, there are still ways to make your shopping more efficient. Here are some basic principles of minimizing grocery costs in every household, thanks to the folks at DebtReductionServices.org:
How to cut down your grocery bill
- Plan and prepare for each grocery trip. Be a little flexible in your meal planning options, since what is on sale may not match what you are craving for dinner that week
- Don’t pay full price unless absolutely necessary
- Take advantage of periodic sales on staples that have a long shelf-life
- Buy meat when it’s on sale and store in the freezer
- Use store coupons especially when items are on sale
- Check store ads and take advantage of store policies that match other stores’ low prices
- For additional ideas, see their blog on the 7 Keys to Saving Money on Groceries
- Leave the credit card and possibly even the debit card at home if you know that you are tempted to overspend using plastic.
If you’re this week’s winner … Happy day!
There are a few ways you can qualify for this week’s prize. You can either:
- Keep an eye out for #OhmHour notifications you receive over the next two weeks. If you spot a Prize #OhmHour in your inbox, take a close look at the goal set for you. (They will something along the lines of "use 1 kWh or less." These targets are tailored to your own personal energy use, so everyone has an equal chance of hitting the goal.) If you achieve your goal, you will be put in the pool of others who did the same and names will be randomly selected as the reward recipients, OR
- Refer a new user to OhmConnect using your unique referral code. If they get to Silver Status and save energy during the qualification period, you’re in! OR
- Have a smart device (like a Wifi thermostat or smart plug) connected to your OhmConnect account during the Prize #OhmHour for instant eligibility!
Tune in Sunday, March 8th at 5pm PT to OhmConnect’s Facebook page to watch the live broadcast of the winners, alongside other important OhmConnect updates (Pro tip: to get a notification when we go live, ‘like’ the Facebook page ahead of time.)
The best part: Even if you don’t win this week’s prize but you successfully meet your Prize #OhmHour goals five times during the Prize #OhmHour promotion, you’ll be entered to win our grand prize of $100,000, to be awarded to one lucky energy saver when we collectively reduce 1 Gigawatt. (Amazing, right?!)
Note: Prize will be paid out as a cash value of $5000, deposited as points into the OhmConnect user’s account.
