There's hope for those who want a Sony PlayStation 2 this holiday season. To give customers a fair chance at getting the hottest game in the U.S., sears.com will be giving away 250 Sony PlayStation 2 units -- 50 each week for five weeks. The promotion begins on November 15 with the first drawing on November 20.
In the "Sony PlayStation 2 Sweepstakes" on sears.com, each sears.com order of $50 or more will qualify for an entry. There are no limits to the number of qualifying entries on sears.com, and entries remain valid through the duration of the sweepstakes. This means those qualifying to enter the first week will have a chance to win during any of the 250 drawings within the five weeks of the sweepstakes.
"This is an opportunity for sears.com to reward its holiday shoppers with the chance to win what's arguably the most desirable gift this holiday season," said Joe Charno, vice president of marketing for sears.com. "At this low price point, nearly every sears.com customer will have a chance to `get in the game."
Shoppers will find on sears.com: home electronics, home office equipment, computers, tools, lawn and garden equipment, product for baby, major and small appliances, cookware and fitness equipment. Sears is also offering this sweepstakes on wishbook.com, where customers will find over 2,100 toys, gifts and jewelry.
