LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Oct. 15, 2012) - In anticipation of two giants of American football hitting London on 28th October, a prize draw will award five lucky Barclaycard Facebook fans with the chance to attend the fan rally, warm up at the tailgate party before the game and watch the St. Louis Rams take on the New England Patriots in a thrilling matchup.
Running from Friday 12th October until just before midnight on Thursday 18th October, the prize draw is open to anyone, although Barclaycard customers have the extra bonus of potentially winning a £250 Hilton hotel voucher. The straightforward entry process involves becoming a fan of Barclaycard's Facebook page, following the link to the draw included in its wall posts, correctly answering a NFL trivia question, and entering basic contact information.
Five winners will be chosen to receive a bundle of four tickets to all the VIP events as the NFL heads to London for the sixth consecutive year. Included in the bundle are tickets to the fan rally in Trafalgar Square on 27th October, entry to the music bash headlined by the band Train on 27th Oct, VIP access to the pre-game tailgate party and the much-anticipated NFL London game between the St. Louis Rams and the New England Patriots on 28th October in Wembley Stadium.
As the latest in a series of initiatives within Barclaycard's growing Facebook community, the prize draw follows the recent launch of the brand's two new reward credit cards. The new Cashback card is designed to give customers 2% cashback on their top five monthly purchases and 0.5% on everything else. They'll just need to use their card 15 times during the month for the 2% booster to kick in. The card also includes a 6% welcome bonus on a customer's top five monthly purchases - they'll be able to earn £120 on these during their first three months. And each year they'll receive a 4% thank you bonus on their top five purchases in the month following their card anniversary, no matter how much they've spent [24.6% APR Representative (Variable) Annual Fee applies]. For those who would rather collect points to spend at their favourite retailers, the Freedom Rewards card allows customers to earn Freedom points on all their spend. Additionally, the card offers a welcome bonus worth £30, double Freedom points for purchases made at UK supermarkets and petrol stations and triple Freedom points with selected Freedom partners such as BHS, Bella Italia, Café Rouge, Currys PC World, Goldsmiths and Strada [18.9% APR Representative (Variable)].
