American Freight Furniture and Mattress announced the launch of its third Facebook contest last week, which focuses on how their fans want to redecorate or refurnish their home in 2013. Called “Comfy New Year,” the contest is based on photo submissions and American Freight Facebook fans will vote for the winner.
In order to enter the contest, consumers must "like" discount furniture store American Freight’s Facebook page and submit a photo of a room or piece of furniture they want to upgrade in the New Year. Each image should include a caption detailing the story behind the photo. Fans can also enter on Twitter by posting their photo with the hashtag #AmericanFreightContests. All submissions must be received by January 6. Fans will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite photos from January 7 through January 25. The winner will be chosen based on which photo receives the highest number of votes, and he or she will receive a $500 Visa gift card.
“We’ve loved being able to interact with our American Freight Facebook fans through the last two contests we have hosted on our page,” said Kelly Warren, spokesperson for American Freight. “We wouldn’t be anywhere without our great customers, so it’s nice to be able to give back, especially in a tight economy and after the holidays when everyone has been buying gifts for others. Redecorating a room or replacing old furniture can truly make people happy, and we can’t wait to see the stories people share about their current furnishings.”
American Freight Facebook fans can submit their photos now through January 6. Voting will begin January 7 and run through January 25 at http://www.facebook.com/americanfreightfurniture.
