Coborn’s 12 Days of Christmas 2016

Coborn's 12 Days of Chrimstas! cobornsblog.com

It is hard to believe the holiday season is once again upon us! The Coborn’s elves have been busy over the last year, putting all the finishing touches on this year’s 3rd annual “12 Days of Christmas” celebration.

During this special holiday event, our elves and vendors visit 12 of our stores. They search for a guest at each with a full cart – and when the guest least expects it – they come out of nowhere and present the ultimate surprise: a $200 gift card that’s used to pay for their groceries and if they are a MORE Rewards Member, they receive DOUBLE Fuel Rewards!

The winning guest also receives a nice gift from the vendor. Plus, plenty of attention: the whole presentation is caught on camera!

The holiday giving does not stop there. Our elves also hand out 10 gift cards (valued at $20 each) to guests around the store, allowing others to get in on the fun!

Be sure to watch the Coborn’s Facebook page, Coborn’s YouTube Channel, or Coborn’s Website throughout the 12 Days of Christmas to find out where the elves have been!

We would also like to thank several of “Santa’s helpers” – our great vendors – who play a big part in making this event happen!

Crazy Fresh Produce
Crystal Farms
Folger’s
General Mills
Gold’n Plump
Kemps
KraftHeinz

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year from all of us at Coborn’s!

12 Days of Christmas

www.cobornsblog.com - Fun with Family with Rebecca
Rebecca – Fun with Family

The Coborn’s 12 days of Christmas have officially begun! This promotion is new to us this year and has already been a huge hit!

We partnered with a dozen of our very favorite vendors to deliver some holiday joy to our customers: Purina, Pan-O-Gold, Crystal Farms, Kemps, Simek’s, Crunchmaster, Sugardale, Food Club, Farmland, Wrigley, Mars and Gold’n Plump.

Then we invited our customers to register to win a cart full of groceries at www.coborns.com.

On each of the 12 Days of Christmas, our Coborn’s elves meet up with the vendor of the day and show up at a store, find someone with a nice, full cart, and surprise them with the gift of free groceries. After having our fun in the store, we come back to Santa’s workshop, draw a random winner from the online registration, and then post the fun on social media.

The first day of our Christmas promotion was super fun! We surprised a customer in Big Lake by paying for her groceries, and in the true Christmas spirit, she paid it forward and bought the groceries of the next two people in line behind her. You can watch the festivities on our YouTube channel.

12 Days of Christmas

If you haven’t yet entered for your chance to win free groceries through the 12 Days of Christmas, there are 10 days left – sign up at www.Coborns.com

Share a Coke & WIN this Summer!

Share a Coke and WIN this Summer with Coborn's & Viking Coke! www.cobornsblog.comThere’s a fun campaign that’s happening this summer and I’m amazed at how many memories it has triggered from my youth! “Share a Coke” is all about reviving that tried-and-true fun of enjoying a Coke with friends.

Find your name!

There are two parts to this campaign that really grabbed my attention. First, Coke is swapping out the logos on its 20-oz. bottles for the 250 most popular first names among American teens and Millennials. What a surprise to see my name made the top 250! If your name isn’t on the list, you can go to shareacoke.com and create a virtual personal pop. Plus, there are a number of fun and neutral bottles to choose from, such as Family, Buddy, Wingman, and so on.

Share A Coke U.S.A.

The second part of the promotion to catch my eye is the social media interaction. By using the #ShareaCoke hashtag, Coke drinkers can share their stories and photos for the chance to be featured on interactive Coke billboards across the country.

Win with Coborn’s & Viking Coke!

To come back to what this means here locally, we invite Coborn’s customers can take a selfie holding a coke. Simply snap the picture, upload the photo onto Facebook or Instagram, and tag Viking Coca-Cola Bottling Company and Coborn’s. Every photo that’s uploaded will be entered into drawings for over $500 in prizes. There will also be a photo area at Lake George for the July 9, 16 and 23 Summertime by George! events with the same concept. Bonus: when you stop by the Summertime by George! booth, you also will receive a BOGO coupon.

In this modern day land of selfies, who can resist taking a picture of a personalized coke! Good luck and don’t forget to Share a Coke this summer!
