Used Car Giveaway is Back! Number 10 Promises More Prizes



VICTORVILLE:( With its 10th car giveaway in about a year one local Toyota dealership continues to give back to the community through its social media and invites local businesses to contribute prizes as well.

Since the contest’s inception in early 2014, Valley Hi Toyota is now on its 10th giveaway of a used car to one lucky Facebook winner — each winner is chosen in a random drawing scheduled around the 5th of the following month. To celebrate giveaway number 10, dubbed “NeXt marks the spot,” the Victorville dealership encouraged local High Desert businesses to offer giveaways as well.

To qualify, all contestants have to do is submit their email address on their contest Facebook tab. Participants are then given the option to share the giveaway on social media for additional entries. The local business prizes will be randomly awarded each day leading up to the grand prize- a used car from Valley Hi Toyota!

“This was a perfect opportunity to get fellow High Desert businesses involved. We have partnered up with businesses that were more than happy to give away food, coffee, souvenirs, car accessories, training, both human and dog, and more!,” says Brian Ortega who is the Media Marketing Manager for Valley Hi Toyota. “By having fellow businesses partake, the word will spread where another lucky person will win a car. Perhaps to use as a second vehicle, a car for their teenager, or, in other cases, their primary mode of transportation. Winners are always appreciative and state how much needed the vehicles are in their lives at that exact moment. We’re positive car number 10 will be a major blessing in someone’s life.”

Social media has taken advertising by storm. Valley Hi Toyota has an active core of followers always engaging in posts. Used Car X will be no different. The active hashtag on Twitter and Instagram will be #Iwant2BX, meaning “I want to be number 10.”

The giveaway started as an idea by General Manager Todd Stokes, who saw it as a unique way to connect on social media, but more as a way to give back to the loyal community that keeps them going. Contest vehicles are trade-ins that the dealership reconditions, just as they would be prepared for sale. They’re used cars, but their new to the winners.

“Our focus has been and will always be about community and customer satisfaction,” comments Stokes. “We took a break from the giveaway for a while and we are asked if we’re going to bring it back. How can I say no to the Victor Valley area? Everyone 18 and over with a valid CA driver’s license is eligible, but all of our winners have been local, and that makes me feel excited.”

In addition to the giveaway, the dealership also use its social media presence to offer fun prizes, giveaways, contests, and information to new and loyal customers. They utilize the used car giveaway entries as a way to build their mailing list so they announce more contests and events. Coming soon will be their Annual Halloween Event, where there is trick-or-treating on the lot, a costume contest, and dance competition with major prizes.

Valley Hi Toyota will be posting more information about the contest and the businesses who are also contributing prizes. Individuals are encouraged to stay connected with the company through social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube) for the latest updates on upcoming events, giveaways, and specials.
