Hello,
My company's about to roll out our "Go Paperless" option (we're a bank),
which is going to save lots 'o trees and a lot of money.
I'm currently working on the internal email marketing campaign, and to
encourage enrollment, we decided to have a contest. This is last-minute, of
course.

So now I've got 24 hours to come up with a green-themed prize for the
Relationship Manager who signs up the most clients.
There's very little budget; we're OK with spending up to/around $100 for a
first prize.
We could offer 2nd, 3rd prizes if they're inexpensive, or maybe do a "first
30 people to sign up get a free bowl of soup" approach.

Front runners:
Fabric grocery bags, but not necessarily for first prize.

Already shot down:
Coffee mugs, gift cards, dinner for 2, donations to plant-a-tree charity.
(I know. For a bank, we're an awful bunch of scrooges.)

Does anyone have any experience with this? Any ideas would be greatly
appreciated!

Thanks & regards,
Gloria

Hi Gloria,

The SunJar is a very interesting gadget and has been wildly advertised by
every other gadget publication around, at least in the UK.

Good luck and success,

Luis

Don't know if this is considered in the same territory as
'plant-a-tree' charities, but there's TerraPass:

Bling!
