Schraders Ticket to Savings: A Year in Review

2018 has come and gone. We are now in a new year! A lot has happened over the last year that it’s sometimes hard to pinpoint your favorite part of the year.

Our favorite part of 2018, though? Our new Schraders Ticket to Savings program of course! We had a blast being able to give away prizes to all the lucky winners! And we’re keeping the new tradition alive for 2019. Look forward to another year with a chance to win cool and fun prizes.


Since we’ve gone through an entire year already, let’s take a look at the prizes people were able to win this past year!


We started out 2018 by giving away a VIP Colorado Eagles Experience. The winner of the drawing received 4 box seat tickets to an Eagles game, the ceremonial puck drop before the game, rooftop fireworks access and a player meet&greet!

Winner Kelly Smith was able to bring her family along for the experience and the kids were able to perform the puck drop. We were happy to see them have such a great time!

February – WWE

The second giveaway of the year was to a WWE Live Road to WrestleMania Show at the Denver Pepsi Center. The prize included 4 ringside seats, a superstar meet&greet and WWE gear that included WWE foldaway metal chairs.

The winner of the giveaway, Cindy Brink, and her husband are big fans of the WWE! Cindy, her husband and friends were able to meet WWE superstars Sin Cara and Mojo Rawley before the start of the show.

Cindy had the following to say about their experience.

“We really enjoyed the WWE Experience. We are big fans of the WWE. All of the swag we received was overwhelming but we will enjoy every piece from the Mountain Dew drinks to the WWE Ringside chairs. Thank you so much for bringing these kinds of giveaways to your customers! We are customers for life.”

We’re so glad you enjoyed your experience, Cindy! If you’re reading this, keep a look out for more WWE giveaways from Schraders.



For the month of March, Kasey Bouck won a VIP basketball party package. She was able to take home a 50” plasma hd tv, coca cola products, and a pop a shot so she can shoot hoops whenever she wants.

“I was not expecting to win. This is so cool I can’t believe I won. I feel awesome! I can’t wait to find somewhere to put this up at home. Thank you so much!”

We hope she’s still enjoying the pop a shot!



One of our favorite Schraders Ticket to Savings giveaways of 2018, we were able to give away a VIP Colorado Rockies Date Night. The winning couple received two VIP Rockies tickets, a night stay at the Oxford Hotel, dinner for 2 and a basket of swag!

Our winner of the giveaway was Nicholas Wright, who has more than happy that his name was pulled for the drawing. Nothing better than a baseball game on a warm spring afternoon, especially as a Mother’s Day gift.

A local favorite event, the Taste of Fort Collins brings together local breweries and restaurants at Washington Park in Fort Collins. James and Stephanie Eastman won tickets for the VIP Taste of Fort Collins Experience. The couple received 4 unlimited all access VIP passes, VIP tent access, band meet&greets and free drinks. Sounds like a pretty good weekend, right there!

We weren’t able to get a picture of our winner but they sure did seem excited!

“This is pretty exciting, we never win anything. We’re definitely looking forward to this weekend. Thank you so much for this experience. We really appreciate it!”



Another annual event in Northern Colorado, the Greeley Stampede always brings fun to the community. An event filled with music, food, and rodeo events, it’s impossible to not have a good time. We were able to send the winner of the June promotion to the Greeley Stampede.

The winner, Tamme Karash, received 2 VIP tickets for the Aaron Watson concert, 2 VIP Spur Club passes, 2 tickets to the PRCA Pro Rodeo and an all day parking pass! She was able to enjoy her time there with her son.

“Thank you! I’m very excited for this weekend. I’m bringing my son with me and we are both big country music fans and I love watching the rodeo shows. I made sure that I took work off just so that I could go and have fun. I really appreciate it, thank you so much!”



Another great music giveaway! For the month of July, we gave away a VIP Mishawaka Experience. The winner of the giveaway received season passes for the rest of the 2018 shows at the Mishawaka. They also received access to the VIP balconies, band meet&greets and Schrader Saver points!

The winner of the promotion, Wade Holdren, was excited for the Ziggy Marley show the most. We hope you were able to make it to as many shows as possible!

“I feel totally stoked that I can go to all shows for the rest of the year! I am very lucky to have won seeing how I only dropped a single slip into the box and I thank this opportunity to have a monthly chance of winning because I am all about music and concerts. Thank you so much!”




If you’re a big country music fan and shop at our stores then there’s a good chance you entered for this giveaway. The winner of the August giveaway received a Grizzly Rose VIP Experience for a Rodney Atkins show. The winner, Abby Weber, received 2 VIP passes to the show, Grizzly Rose/Sweetwood Jerky gear, a meet&greet and Schrader Saver points. We hope you had a good time!



Our second WWE giveaway of 2018! This time around, we were able to award two winners. We gave away two different prizes.

The first prize consisted of 4 ringside seats to WWE Live at the Budweiser Event Center, WWE Gear (chair included), and a superstar meet & greet with Dolph Ziggler and Bobby Lashley. The winner of the giveaway was TreVaughn Fore. His family are such big fans of WWE that they even drove to our office from Grand Junction to pick up their prizes.

“Thank you for this amazing gift… I won tickets to my favorite show, thank you Schrader company!”


The second winner, Kel Conroy, won 4 ringside seats to Smackdown Live, WWE gear and Schrader Saver points. They also received a foldable chair as part of the WWE gear.

“As a daily customer of Schraders, I felt this was a great way to show customer appreciation. We thank Schraders for the chance to sit ringside and for showing customers just how much we mean.”

For the month of October, we ran a promotion to send our winner down to Denver to catch a football game with friends. The winner of the promotion received 2 club level tickets, autographed merchandise, Gatorade gear and Schrader Saver points! You can never go wrong with a football game!

Unfortunately, we don’t have a picture to show of our winner with the prizes.



November – December

This was probably our longest running promotion so far! Similar to the first giveaway, it only seemed fitting to give another chance to win a VIP Colorado Eagles Experience a second time around! The winner received 4 VIP tickets to the Eagles and Condors hockey game, a ceremonial puck drop, rooftop fireworks access, Eagles gear and Schrader Saver points!

The winner, Erin, was very excited to hear that she had won!
