Win a $500 Shopping Spree!

Events

The other day, Beth Marchand and I were talking about how we could add a little mores spice to our upcoming 20% off sale on all Thule roof racks and cargo boxes. While this is one of our most popular offers of the year on its own, Beth and I got to thinking about the people who already have all the gear storage they need and are just fine, thank you very much. What about them?

Well, the simple fact is no matter how many roof racks or cargo boxes you have, you’re always going to want (if not necessarily need) new gear to load them up with. That’s where the idea of the $500 Shopping Spree came into play. Beth and I specifically thought it would be cool if the contest enabled folks to tell the world what kind of gear they’d buy and pack away in their Thule cargo box if they won the $500 Shopping Spree. Fortunately for us, there’s Pinterest and that’s where we’ve decided to make this contest happen.

Entering is as easy as heading over to EMS.com and pinning the *ONE product YOU’D most like to take on your next adventure to one of your boards with the hashtag #EMSThuleSpree.

If you’re not on Pinterest, that’s OK. Just stop by any of our stores and ask for an entry form.

We’ll randomly draw one lucky name from ALL the pins and entries receive and that person will win a $500 EMS gift card to use on the product they pinned or anything else on our website or in our stores. * To give everyone a fair shot, please only pin ONE product with the hashtag #EMSThuleSpree.

Beth and I hope you enjoy this contest. It should be fun to see all the gear you guys are psyched about for the fall whether it’s a new jacket or a new Thule box. Whatever you choose, be sure to enter or pin your product by October 15. Good luck!

    Jim, sorry this response took so long. Tax extensions thru Oct 15, crazy. I edited and took off my wording after the #EMSThulespree. Hopefully it’s there now when you search, I looked on pinterest online and saw it. Some folks definitely tagged some cool gear, a few duplicates though :( Thanks for the contest!
