Williamsville, New York-based Tops celebrated its 60th anniversary with the return of its popular “Rip It and Bling” game, which has recently begun to award prizes.
Daniel L. of Manlius of New York won the top prize of $60,000, followed by two winners – Karen W. of North Boston, New York and Debra W. of Cheektowaga, New York – who won $5,000 in free gas and groceries.
New this year were the chances to win money-saving tickets off of groceries by collecting the four railroad tickets to save $10 off or two luxury properties (Boardwalk and Park Place) to save $25 off groceries. Customers are able to help Tops give back to local charities when they receive a Community Chest ticket. Inside certain tickets, there will be a $1 donation code – when customers redeemed the ticket at check out, Tops will donate $1 to a local food bank, children’s hospital or school on the customer’s behalf.
While the competition is wrapping up, prizes are still being awarded so the company told customers to keep an eye on any purchased ticket for a chance to win. Twenty winners are guaranteed to win the second chance sweepstakes of a $500 Visa Diamond gift card.
Customers were able to get Rip It and Bling tickets at any Tops Friendly Markets location through May 30 for a chance to win more than $17 million in prizes, including $100 in free gas and groceries, gift cards and entertainment.
