L.L.Bean Visa Card Rewards Lucky Cardmember with $250,000 in Here, There, EVERYWHERE Giveaway

$10 fast-food purchase results in once-in-a-lifetime win

Freeport, ME, Feb. 10, 2015 – L.L.Bean and Barclaycard US, the payments business of Barclays in the US, announced Andrew J. Hart, Jr., from Rutland, VT, as the winner of the L.L.Bean Visa Card Here, There, EVERYWHERE Giveaway. The recent promotion automatically entered L.L.Bean Visa Cardmembers into the giveaway every time they used their card. The purchase that won Mr. Hart the $250,000 cash prize was a $10 purchase at a fast-food restaurant.

"L.L.Bean Visa Cardmembers use their card on everyday purchases, from gas to groceries to automatic bill pay," said Tim Record, Director of the L.L.Bean Visa Card program. "Thanks to our Here, There, EVERYWHERE Giveaway, one lucky Cardmember turned an everyday food purchase into $250,000 - simply by choosing to use his L.L.Bean Visa Card."

The Here, There, EVERYWHERE Giveaway ran from June 27 to Dec. 31, 2014, and Cardmembers automatically received entries in the giveaway each time they used their L.L.Bean Visa Card issued by Barclaycard US for purchases. There was no limit to the number of entries and no minimum purchase was required. Entries accumulated, so the more Cardmembers used their card, the more chances they had to win.

"Our Cardmembers loved the added fun of a chance to win $250,000 with every purchase made - as well as this giveaway’s simplicity, with no entry forms to complete or codes to remember," said Susan Schmidt, head of retail partnerships at Barclaycard US. "The giveaway was an example of just one of the exciting and exclusive benefits our loyal Cardmembers enjoy."
