BTC ended their Christmas Campaign with a car giveaway on Wednesday, December 28 at its office on Pioneer’s Way.

 

Alice Culmer was named the winner of a 2016 Ford Figas. This daily spoke with Leteasha Lord, BTCs Marketing Director for Grand Bahama.

 

She noted that the giveaway was a part of the ‘Live in the Moment’ Campaign for Christmas 2016.

 

“We were giving away a $1 million in cash and prizes to customers around the country, not just Grand Bahama,” she said.

 

While Culmer was not in the store at the time of the announcement, Lord explained, “She paid her bill in full and from the receipt we can tell that she is a regular customer, because her bill is not extremely large,” she said. 

 

Lord added that BTCs Campaign consisted of a multitude of different gifts, including 12 - 2016 Ford Figas, laptops, minutes, phone bill paid for a year and vouchers that guaranteed a lifetime of Internet service.  

 

Customers became eligible for the prizes when they paid their phone bills in full, topped up their cellphones with $20 or more, or if they signed up for any of BTCs landlines. 

 

For the 12 days of Christmas each BTC store gave away one of the Ford cars and customers had a chance to submit their names to the raffle after fulfilling any of the previously mentioned requirements to win.  

 

Lord emphasized that this campaign was just one of the many initiatives that BTC has been conducting to give back to the community and show their appreciation for their customers.

 

“This is what BTC does for its valued customers, we ensure that we give back especially during the Christmas time,” Lord said. 

 

She informed this daily that BTC began its campaign in November.

 

“We do a ‘Meals on Wheels’ Thanksgiving Drive. we do charitable events and we gave checks to numerous charities around the island, to name a few – Columbus House, the Old Folks Home, Dudley Seide,” she said.  

 

Lord continued to say that these acts of charity flow straight into December where they also gave away items such as refrigerators, stoves, televisions, and washing machines during a hurricane restoration effort.  They also gave away 2,000 $10 phone cards as well as $29 cellphones, which usually sold for $149.

 

Lord finally noted that BTC is always giving back and is proud of this, which is why they call themselves the number one telecommunications company in The Bahamas.  

 

She told this daily that BTC is always here to provide relief and support and not only telecommunications.
