Hankook Tire '2011 Great Hit' Promotion Winner Hits One Out-Of-The Park And Wins Big!
Washington State Native Wins Grand Prize 2012 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 Sedan
Wayne, NJ, February 13, 2012 - Surrounded by friends and family, Emilie Clayton has "hit" it big. Clayton, a Wapato Washington native, was randomly selected as the winner of Hankook Tire's 'Great Hit' giveaway. Soo Il Lee, president of Hankook Tire America Corp, presented Clayton with the key to a 2012 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 sedan on Thursday, February 9th at Warren Secord Tire Factory in Kent, Washington.
The giveaway event, held at Warren Secord Tire Factory in Kent, Washington, one of Hankook's valuable retailers, was certainly a family affair. To accept the prize, the mother of three brought along her husband, two of her children, parents and aunt and uncle. "We're excited about this prize; so grateful and thankful...our experience with Hankook has been amazing, and we definitely plan to buy Hankook tires in the future," Clayton said.
Clayton, who does not typically enter many sweepstakes, noted that given this win, she may now be entering more of them. She was chosen through a random drawing of more than 44,000 entries.
Hankook's ongoing rebate and giveaway programs have been well received by consumers and have contributed to the company's overall success in the U.S. market. "With the Hankook brand in the U.S. growing every day, our mail-in rebate promotions generate excitement for consumers, as well as our dealers," Lee said.
The 'Great Hit' Mail-in Rebate program was available to consumers who purchased four select tires of any size between September 1, 2011 and November 30, offering them up to $80 off their purchase. The tires included in the rebate program were the Ultra-High Performance Hankook Ventus V12 evo, the Luxury Performance Touring All-Season Hankook Optimo H426 and the Performance Touring All-Season Hankook Optimo H727. No purchase was necessary to enter the giveaway.
Hankook will continue its successful 'Mail-in Rebate' program this year with a spring consumer promotion starting April 1st, 2012 through June 30, 2012. The details of the program will be announced later next month.
