By March 26, 2013 December 5th, 2017 No Comments

Last holiday season, Newegg held its Extreme Sports Sweepstakes, which awarded over $58,000 in prizes including a grand prize package that featured a Burton snowboard, K2 skis, Canon EOS T4i 18MP Digital SLR, $1,000 Newegg gift card and a 2012 Fiat Abarth!

The lucky winner of this awesome prize package is Troy B. from Evansville, Indiana. We reached out to Troy and asked him a few questions about his experience winning the sweepstakes.

Q. Tell us a little about yourself.
A. I was born and raised in Evansville. My wife Cindy and I have been happily married for 17 years and we celebrated our wedding anniversary this month. We have a daughter Zoe who is 14 and a freshman at Mater Dei high school and a son Ebby who is 5 and attends Resurrection pre-school. I work for a local bank here in Evansville.

Q. Are you new to Newegg or have you been a long time customer?
A. I am a long time customer.

Q. How did you hear about the Extreme Sports Sweepstakes?
A. I was shopping for Christmas and came across it. I usually enter the Newegg Sweepstakes while I am on the site.

Q. What was your first reaction after receiving your winner notification?
A. I thought it was a scam. I spent a day or two trying to ensure it wasn’t before contacting the sender.

Q. How do you like your new Fiat Abarth?
A. I love it. It gives you an adrenaline rush to drive. My favorite thing about the car is the Bose stereo system. The sound is awesome.

Congrats again, Troy, and enjoy the new ride!
