Albertsons Market customer and El Paso, Texas resident Melissa Varela is the confirmed winner of the Grand Prize in the grocer’s Monopoly Collect & Win Game.
Varela won the only $1 million cash prize offered in this year’s game by shopping at Albertsons Market in El Paso and collecting the promotional game tickets. “Giving a great customer like Melissa the Grand Prize in our Monopoly game is just a fantastic way for us to close out the promotion this year,” said Albertsons El Paso store director Abel Olivas. “When someone like Melissa wins such a big prize, it’s like all of us in our store here won. We couldn’t be happier for her.”
Olivas and Albertsons division leadership were on hand to present her with her winning check earlier this afternoon.
Albertsons Market has offered the Monopoly Collect and Win Promotion since 2009, and awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in prizes with the contest’s four promotions. This year’s grand prize is the biggest one awarded to date. The last Albertsons Monopoly Collect & Win grand prize redeemed was in the first year of the contest, when a Los Lunas, NM couple won a $500,000 mortgage payoff.
Customers have until June 12, 2012 to check any remaining tickets and claim prizes in this year’s game.
Albertsons Market operates around 200 stores under the Albertson’s banner in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Texas.
