This summer, Foster’s is giving consumers the chance to win a unique trip to Ayers Rock, Australia, as part of its latest on-pack promotion. Shoppers will be in with a chance to win a variety of prizes with any purchase of a Foster’s multipack, including chill disks, chiller seats and slings, as well as well as the ultimate trip to “the thirstiest place on earth” alongside a partnership with music and discovery app, Shazam until August 31st 2018.
Shoppers need only scan the Shazam icon on the can to enter the competition and will be notified instantly if they have won one of the thousands of prizes. The lucky winner of the trip to Australia will be selected via a prize draw at the end of the campaign.
Through activating its “For the thirsty” platform throughout the summer months, Foster’s hopes to drive penetration at a time when shoppers are looking for crisp, cool refreshment. Furthermore, promoting on can means that 95% of the SKU mix can be included within the promotion, attracting more entrants and guaranteeing additional purchases of Foster’s throughout the summer.
