LOS ANGELES, Calif. (April 29, 2011) – What’s better than seeing a Dodgers baseball game? How about seeing it for free…and saving money on car and home insurance as well. That’s the pitch from Mercury Insurance, which has two special promotions for Dodger fans: the “Pick Your Prize” sweepstakes and “Get a Quote, Get a Pair of Dodger Tickets” deal, which start today.
The Pick Your Prize sweepstakes allows fans to register online at http://www.dodgers.com/mercury to win one of four premium prizes: 2012 season tickets, a luxury suite for 20 guests at a 2011 season home game, four Dodger Dugout Club seats and field passes for a 2011 season home game, and four baseline seats and field passes for a 2011 season home game. The Pick Your Prize sweepstakes runs through June 15.
After registering for the contest, Dodger fans can also score free tickets to a game by simply getting an online Mercury auto insurance quote. The Get a Quote, Get a Pair of Dodger Tickets promotion runs through June 30.
This is the fifth year Mercury, which specializes in personal auto and homeowners insurance, has partnered with the Dodgers. “From a business perspective, it’s highly beneficial to be associated with one of the most storied franchises in the history of baseball,” said Erik Thompson, Mercury advertising director. “They have an incredibly loyal fan base, draw more than 3 million fans a year and have been a major part of the Los Angeles community since 1958.”
Thompson said it’s fitting the two companies are partners because they share a history. “The Dodgers moved into Chavez Ravine in 1962, the same year Mercury opened its doors for business. In 2012, we’ll both celebrate 50 great years of serving the Los Angeles-area community.”
Besides partnering with the Dodgers, Mercury – the third largest private-passenger auto insurance company in California – is the title sponsor for the July 30-Aug. 7 Mercury Insurance Open, the Women’s Tennis Association tour stop in Carlsbad, CA, and is also a sponsor of the LA Kings.
