Virtual Piggy Announces "Win Your Wishlist" Sweepstakes
HERMOSA BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Virtual Piggy, Inc. (OTCBB: VPIG) announced their "Win Your Wishlist" Sweepstakes today where a select number of lucky children will win their Virtual Piggy Wishlists for the holidays (up to $500).
Virtual Piggy allows parents to set up a monthly allowance for their children and promotes financial management while empowering youth under 21 to make purchasing, saving and other money management decisions for themselves, within the boundaries set up by parents.
From now until December 7, once a parent registers a Virtual Piggy account and their child creates a Wishlist, they will be automatically entered to win. More information on this promotion can be found at www.virtualpiggy.com/wishlist.
To make it even easier, members can use the Piggy PinSM button to add items to their Wishlist. They simply install the Piggy Pin button in their browser, and then use it to add items from their favorite websites to their Wishlists.
"While most wishlists are merchant specific," said Virtual Piggy VP Marketing Joanne Wong, "the Virtual Piggy Wishlist enables kids to go to any of their favorite age-appropriate sites, choose items they really want, and let their family know their must have items for the holiday."
