Portland, ORE. — BlueVolt® announces the winner of its “One Million $BlueBucks” promotion is Richard Kidder, 51, of Bellevue, Ohio.
The promotion, to celebrate the one millionth $BlueBucks awarded, began in early May 2009 and the winner was selected in a random drawing on June 16, 2009. The grand prize was a cruise to the Bahamas and the ten runner-up prizes were 100 $BlueBucks each. Everyone who completed a BlueVolt online training course during the promotion was entered into the drawing and eligible to win.
Kidder, the randomly selected winner, is an employee of the Fremont, Ohio branch of Famous Supply, a wholesaler distributor of HVAC, plumbing, industrial and building products. Kidder is registered in Affiliated Distributors Training Center and Eclipse University, both hosted by BlueVolt.
$BlueBucks are BlueVolt’s valuable rewards system which is tied to the successful completion of its online training courses. BlueVolt began its $BlueBucks reward system in 2003 and reached its one millionth $BlueBucks milestone at the beginning of June 2009.
“We held this promotion to celebrate this important milestone—awarding one million $BlueBucks and to highlight the success and effectiveness of our online training platform,” said Don Spear, president and CEO of BlueTech LLC. “We want to thank all of the manufacturers and distributors that are involved in our $BlueBucks program for helping their employees and customers to learn and earn on BlueVolt.com.”
Kidder couldn’t believe he was the winner when he was initially contacted by BlueVolt. “I didn’t believe I had won and when we were accidentally disconnected, I almost didn’t take the call when the BlueVolt representative called back. The $BlueBucks program was certainly motivating—I just had no idea how motivating it would be!” joked Kidder.
