Call 811 — a nationwide safety service is observing "National Safe Digging Month" — will be kicking off a month-long web promotion on April 1, giving users the ability to "dig" for prizes every day with a virtual shovel. Visitors to Call 811's website can click 1 of 24 virtual "dirt piles" in hopes of finding a prize notification underneath. Users may return to http://safedigging.me each day for another chance to win until April 30.
Users will create an account before digging that includes their name, email address, and mailing address. The promotion allows visitors one dig per day. However, bonus questions are included as well, to not only give users the ability to learn more about Call 811 and the importance of safe digging, but also to earn an extra "dig" to double a user's chances of winning a prize everyday.
Be careful! Dig in the wrong area and you could hit a water, gas, power, phone or sewer line, resulting in no prize for that particular day.
Call 811 will be awarding lucky diggers the chance to win an iPad Mini, Kindle Fire HDX, Apple TV, Jawbone JAMBOX, Samsung Chromebook, Sony Cybershot X50 Camera, $250, $500, Call 811 Shirts, Call 811 Mugs and gift cards from VISA, iTunes, Amazon and Starbucks.
Call 8-1-1 before starting any digging project. You will avoid injury, expense, embarrassment and a very inconvenient day in the day.
*Prizes will be awarded at the end of each week throughout April. Good luck and we hope you win! All Call 811 T-Shirts and Call 811 Mugs will be mailed at the end of April.
