Only months after Julie Friesen won $25,000 in our January Go Auto contest, Edmonton’s Kayla Pilling is taking home $25,000 of her own thanks to our Upgrade Your Ride giveaway.
The contest, which ran from April 4th to May 13th, awarded Kayla with enough money to upgrade her vehicle–a 2017 Chevrolet Traverse–to a brand new 2018 (hence, “Upgrade Your Ride”). However, she’ll take her winnings in cash, and will be able to do anything she wants with it.
When she received the phone call notifying her of her big win, she was at work and could barely believe it. “I told my assistant manager that if this is actually a thing … if I actually did win this contest … I’m leaving right now.”
Pilling is originally from New Brunswick, and will be spending at least some of the cash on a trip home to visit family and friends.
“I said, you better be prepared to cover for me the rest of the week. So yeah, I was pretty excited!”
Kayla is going on maternity leave in about three months, so the money couldn’t have come at a better time.
Congrats on the baby (and the big win), Kayla!
The Next Go Auto Contest
Over the last few years, we’ve made a name for ourselves by giving away cars, trips, 10 grand in gas, and straight up bags of cash. There’s always something on the horizon. So make sure you stay in touch by keeping up with the blog (or our social accounts; see below).
We’ve got a big one in the works right now, but until the time comes, it’s staying a secret. You’re going to want to stick around for it, though. It’s going to be a big one.
