The folks at the Ram Truck brand have launched a new contest on Facebook where you and a friend could each win a 2012 Ram 1500 Express – a total prize package worth almost $50,000 for you and that lucky friend in the new Share The Glory Sweepstakes! In addition to the grand prize of a pair of 2012 Ram 1500 Express pickups, Ram is also giving away a weekly prize of $100 in Mopar accessories and a Ram prize pack (shirts, hats, etc) that is worth $100 – meaning that you and a friend could each win $200 just for throwing your hat in the ring to win an awesome new pickup.
The process of signing up for the Share The Glory Sweepstakes is
very simple; all that you really need is a Facebook account. Once you
have a Facebook account, you head to the
Sweepstakes page where you will see a “button” to sign up, at which time
you will be asked for your basic contact information. Once you have
completed that simple form, you will be asked to invite some Facebook
friends and that is one of the key components of the Sweepstakes. No
one person can win a 2012 Ram 1500 Express in the contest, hence the
Share The Glory title – so to receive an official entry you will need to
send invites to friends on Facebook and have them complete their entry
form as well. Once you have signed up and a friend that you invited has
signed up, you have one official entry. This means that the more
friends of yours who fill out their entry form increases your chances of
winning. This also means that you can conceivably have as many entries
to win a 2012 Ram 1500 Express as you have friends on Facebook!
next weekly drawing is set for this coming Thursday (August 18th, 2011)
and the paired winners will be notified that they have won a weekly
drawing within 10 days of that drawing. Those entries not picked for the
$100 Mopar gift card and $100 Ram Truck brand prize pack will be put
back into the bunch for future weekly drawings. Finally, on September
22nd, 2011, the winning pairing will be drawn from all of the entries
accepted during the Sweepstakes and the two winners will be notified by
phone, email or postal mail within 10 days of the drawing. That being
said, by heading to the Ram Truck brand Facebook page and signing up
along with a couple friends, you could be the proud owner of a FREE 2012
Ram 1500 Express before the end of the year.
The fine print
lists the prize trucks as being worth $24,965 each including destination
fee, which means that the winners will be getting rear wheel drive 2012
Ram 1500 Express models. Available only as a regular cab with a 6’4″
bed, the Express is powered by the 390 horsepower 5.7L Hemi V8, so it
packs a hell of a punch for the new low priced pickup trimline.
