Hockey Love Hurts: Win 1 of 2 $75 gift cards from Visa &

Hockey Love HurtsHockey Love Hurts is not a phrase that Canucks fans are used to hearing, at least over the past season, but for Christiane B. from Richmond, BC and Alan D. from Vancouver (who now lives in Calgary), that phrase has paid off. They are the two grand prize winners of Visa’s Hockey Love Hurts sweepstakes; a program that celebrated the passion and loyalty of Canadian hockey fans through the ups and downs of their favourite hockey team. In the contest, Visa cardholders were invited to pledge allegiance to their favourite NHL team and received prizes and offers when their chosen team didn’t do so well in certain aspects of the season (when hockey love hurt the most!). The grand prize was any NHL fan’s ultimate dream – tickets to a Stanley Cup Final Game!

Now Christiane and Alan are set to go to Canucks home games in the next week and we will be hearing from Christiane on our blog in a special Q&A video about her love for our dear Canucks and how excited she is to attend the game this Saturday.

As part of this promotion earlier this year we gave away a Visa gift card when we asked you submit questions for the Vancouve Canucks Alex Burrows. Our friends at Visa know that not everyone can get to experience the Finals from the luxury of the arena, so they want to make sure that hockey love doesn’t hurt for the rest of us – in the next week, two of our readers in Canada have the chance to win a $75 Visa Prepaid card!

For a chance to win one, here is what you have to do for a chance to win:

1) Post or RT this on Twitter (1 entry):

Hockey Love doesn’t have to hurt thanks to #Visa & #Canucks. RT for a chance to win a $75 gift card!

2) Leave a comment on this post telling us what you would spend your $75.00 on (1 entry).

We’ll follow up with a video and photos of the winner’s experience at Saturday’s game and announce the winners of the gift cards.

Good luck and GO CANUCKS GO!

    I would use the $75 to take my wife out to show how much I appreciate her for putting up with a super fan (though she secretly enjoys the games).

  2. Susan Reno says

    I would struggle between spending it on Canucks gear for my daughter for her birthday or moving expenses

  3. Sheryl Harry says

    I’ve been wanting to pledge to the NHLPA Beard-a-Thon. Kesler, Raymond and Hamhuis are involved, so I would pledge to one of our guys, of course. I would just have to decide which one… Or maybe all three.

  4. Cornuck says

    If I win and IF the Canucks win the Cup – my $75 would go towards ‘Cup winner’ gear. Otherwise, it is time for another jersey.

  5. Simon says

    I would use the $75 and spend it on a Canucks jersey – and if they go all the way, I’ll have #11 and “Stanley” sewn on the back!

  6. Kiersten Eis says

    I would use the $75 to update my canucks wardrobe! As much as I love my current (yet slightly outdated) jersey, I would head out and get me some of those great new ladies cut t-shirts! Nothing says casual friday at work more than a great pair of jeans and a new Canucks shirt! Go Canucks Go! #bringithome

  7. Dawn says

    It would definitely have to go towards Canucks gear … something with the words Vancouver Canucks: 2011 Stanley Cup Champions has a nice ring to it 😉

  8. Danielle says

    I would use it to buy a couple rounds of beers for my friends as we watch the game at the pub! Go Canucks, Go!!!

  9. Erica says

    I would put the benjamins towards body paint for game day!!! Takes a lot of paint to cover your whole body… And I’d need to order the bikini top to go with it! Go Nucks Go!!!! Bring it home boys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Lexia Nash says

    I would buy each of my two sons (ages 3yrs & 5months) Canucks gear! They could use some new Canucks tee’s to get them in the spirit! Go CANUCKS Go!!!!!!

  11. Monica says

    I would buy as much Canucks gear as I can get with the money I win. In keeping my Canucks spirit.. GO CANUCKS GOOO<3

  12. Anabela B says

    Need to finish off the jerseys for the family. We have 4 out of 5… just need one more for our 5 year old.
