Cooper Tires, "My Everyday Road Trip" Contest

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cooper Tire for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's that time of year for many of us, tax returns are in and it's time to put off buying a set of tires!  For myself, I'm needing to get this done soon!  In fact, I'm surprised I made it through the winter, I probably should have replaced already.  You can bet I need to do it before the mountain roads become accessible, and I really start putting the miles on my truck!

I happen to be a BIG fan of Cooper Tire!  In fact, Cooper is about the only brand of tire that I have had on my vehicles, dating back to when I was 16.  I currently have ran with their ST, STT, and ATR model tires.  It's the ST I need to replace on my truck now, and I look forward to placing another great set of Coopers on my truck soon!

Cooper is kicking off spring in style this year with their Cooper Tire's My Every Day Road Trip Contest!  In addition to a new set of tires, how can you go wrong with a gift card to use for $5,000 in gas to fuel your road trips this summer?  Man oh man, that would really open doors for me on vacation possibilities with the high gas prices we are faced with!

Cooper wants to hear about your "Every Day Road Trips"!  Whether ordinary trips to the grocery store or extraordinary memories, like a newborn’s first car ride home, Cooper Tire is commemorating life’s every day road trips with an exciting opportunity to earn an entire year of free gas during the “My Every Day Road Trip” contest. Running March 1 through March 29, fans of Cooper Tire’s Facebook page can share their not-so- everyday road trip stories by submitting video, written stories or photos.

“Cooper tires are crafted for life’s every day road trips and we’ve long heard from dedicated fans about their daily journeys. We’re excited to create an open forum for people to share their stories,” said Hal Gardner, Cooper Tire’s Vice President of Marketing Communications and Market Intelligence.

So how do you enter the contest?  Simply enter a story, photo, or video between now and March 29th that highlights your "not so every day road trip".  Be sure to highlight how Cooper tires got you there, or added to the experience.  The photos, stories, and videos will be judged by this, and by your originality, creativity, and passion for Cooper tires.  Submit your content to the Cooper Tires Facebook page.

The top written story will win a $100 gift card to use toward gas for one week while the highest rated photo entry will receive a $500 gift card to use toward gas for one month.

The top five video finalists will each win a new set of four Cooper tires and advance to the final phase of the competition. In the final phase, Cooper Tire Facebook fans will be encouraged to vote for their favorite Every Day Road Trip video, to help determine the final winner. The video with the combined highest score and most votes will be awarded a gift card for $5,000 toward gas for one year to fuel their daily drive.

How about an opportunity to win based just on voting?  Cooper Tire is also offering its fans a chance to win a Road Trip Kit just for voting during the My Every Day Road Trip sweepstakes. Beginning April 15, fans can vote for their top video to help determine the overall Cooper Tire Facebook video winner. For each vote (one per day), fans will automatically receive an entry to win a Road Trip Kit. The prize pack includes several items to keep them on-the-go, including a $100 Cooper Tire auto service voucher, a $50 gas card, $50 iTunes gift card and Cooper gear.  So many ways to win, you really need to get in on this one!
