Kanetix spreads some holiday cheer to one lucky contest winner

TORONTO, December 21, 2011 - With the holiday season around the corner, Kanetix.ca is spreading some festive cheer by today announcing the winner of their Kanetix Facebook contest.

The thankful winner from Calgary, Alberta is amazed they won a Kanetix.ca contest after they tried to win the last Facebook contest and two prior Twitter contests launched earlier in the year.

"I have been a faithful fan of Kanetix for some time now and I love when Kanetix launches contests. When I heard they were giving away a gas card this holiday season, I immediately entered hoping I would win. I've been spending a lot so this is a big break for me," says Melanie Holmgren, contest winner.

The last Kanetix Facebook contest was so successful Kanetix decided to launch another one after fans kept asking for another opportunity to test their luck at winning. After receiving positive feedback from fans, Kanetix started planning their second Facebook contest give away. The second contest of its kind lasted for three weeks and garnered thousands of entries from across Canada. It was easy for participants to earn a chance at winning a $250 gas card. To participate, all that was required was for a consumer to like Kanetix's Facebook page and fill out a quick entry form to be entered.

While looking for the perfect gift for that special someone this season, many motorists are finding themselves strapped for cash given all of the excess spending and holiday parties that are typical this time of year. Kanetix recognizes the tight crunch many consumers experience around the holidays and wanted to help consumers cope by awarding a $250 gas card to one lucky winner.

As everyone gets into the holiday spirit, Kanetix reminds drivers the importance of road safety. It is important for drivers to be mindful of the roads, always have a designated driver, and refrain from bad driving habits.
