Dynowatt Partners with Schlitterbahn Waterparks to Offer Facebook Fans a Chance to Win Prizes
- Sunday, November 1, 2009 Dynowatt, an independent provider of electricity and green power, is reaching out to customers new and old through Facebook, the popular social networking site. By becoming a Facebook Fan of Dynowatt (powered by Accent Energy), energy consumers can read conservation tips and receive information about the company's services. Even better, Dynowatt has partnered with Schlitterbahn Waterparks, a leader in family water entertainment, to offer great giveaways as an incentive to become a Fan of Dynowatt.
When you sign up as a Dynowatt Fan between November 2, 2009 and December 4, 2009, you're entered in a random drawing to win the grand prize: a $500 Visa gift card. In addition, four more lucky Facebook Fans of Dynowatt will win a Schlitterbahn Indoor Waterpark Package. This package provides a family of four with all-day passes to Schlitterbahn's indoor Galveston Island Waterpark, along with four meal tickets and $50 Splash Cash. (Cash value of $193.) During their free day of fun, the winners will enjoy the slides and pools of the 2008 Golden Ticket Award winner for best indoor waterpark in the world.
But that's not all. For every 1,000 Facebook Fans added during the prize period (up to 5,000), Dynowatt will give away an additional Schlitterbahn Indoor Waterpark prize. These fortunate Fans will receive a four-pack of all-day indoor water park passes. (Cash value of $111.)
If Dynowatt Fans really get the word out and bring in a total of 5,000 additional Facebook fans during the prize period, the company will give away another $500 Visa gift card. As more people sign up, more people will have the chance to win prizes. (See official rules below for more details. Giveaway restricted to Texas residents who are at least 18 years of age.)
The chance to win a prize isn't the only reason to become a Dynowatt Fan on Facebook. From time to time, the company will post energy conservation tips that will help you stretch your energy dollar even further. Additionally, being a fan lets you contact company representatives with just a few keystrokes. If you're not already a Dynowatt customer, you will find valuable information about Dynowatt to help you make the switch.
"At Dynowatt we take customer service very seriously. We want to give our customers the most value for their electricity dollar and provide them with meaningful ways to control their energy costs. Facebook, MYDynowatt and our other online tools provide customers with convenient ways to do that," said Lance Schneier, Chairman and CEO. "We want to be wherever our customers are. To that end, we listen to our customers' suggestions and design our customer touch points to meet their needs."
Just as Dynowatt is the leader among Texas energy companies, family-owned Schlitterbahn Waterparks has been operating in the Lone Star State since 1979. Schlitterbahn currently operates three parks in Texas and one in Kansas. Dynowatt demonstrates its commitment to providing customers with value by offering low electricity rates. In that same spirit, each of Schlitterbahn's parks offer free parking, free use of inner tubes and a policy that allows families to bring picnic baskets with them to keep the cost of the visit down. "Schlitterbahn was immediately interested when Dynowatt contacted us regarding their Social Marketing driven GiveAway campaign," said Jeffrey A. Siebert, Director of Corporate Communications & Sales. "Dynowatt wanted to provide their Facebook Fans with an opportunity to win a prize package that would be of interest to as many of their fans as possible and we feel our award winning Galveston Island Waterpark is a perfect match."
New Fans of Dynowatt will learn about the company's consumer-friendly offerings, including SecureRate Pricing and a 24-hour automated phone payment option. Fans of the company are already asking questions and receiving answers that help them make a more educated decision when choosing their energy supplier.
So get the word out to your friends and family; as Dynowatt earns more Facebook Fans, more Texas families will have the chance to win a free trip to Schlitterbahn's indoor Galveston Island Waterpark. Others will also have a chance at a $500 Visa gift card. Lower utility bills and free fun at the world's best year-round indoor water slides: what a great combination!
