The next best thing to Fantasy Football with friends is hanging out with them, suggests Applebee's.
This fall the company is offering guests prizes, including Applebee's gift cards, while they cheer on their favorite teams.
By checking into Applebee's via a scan of a QR code and Facebook Places, guests have a chance to instantly win Applebee's digital gift cards (600 winners with $5, $10, and $20 denominations) and one lucky winner will win a trip to New York City and ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut, for a behind-the-scenes ESPN Experience package. There is no purchase necessary to enter and win.
The full ESPN Experience package includes a three-day/two-night trip for two to New York City and Bristol; tour of ESPN studios; $200 merchandise from the ESPN store; and $200 Applebee's gift card to enjoy dinner in New York City.
"Football season is that rare time of year when people actually look forward to Mondays," says Ed Erhardt, president, customer marketing and sales for ESPN. "ESPN and Applebee's are making Mondays even better with the Check-In and Win contest, and we look forward to hosting one lucky winner in Bristol for a very special behind-the-scenes tour of the ESPN studios."
Guests should check with their neighborhood Applebee's for other game day specials.
