“Why I DirectBuy” Sweepstakes Winners

October 5, 2015

By: DirectBuy



DirectBuy announces today Jason and Karen Mongrain of Kelowna, Ontario are the lucky winners of our “Why I DirectBuy” sweepstakes.

The “Why I DirectBuy” sweepstakes gave DirectBuy members across the United States and Canada the opportunity to win a cash prize of $7,500 by sharing how DirectBuy has positively impacted their home and lifestyle.

The Mongrains, who have been members of DirectBuy since 2005, plan to utilize the prize package to improve their new home they built earlier this year. Incorporating more modern and aesthetically-appealing design elements to unfinished rooms will be the first priority as they continue working to bring a clear vision of their dream home to life. They also hope to start the construction of an outdoor kitchen in the spring with an outdoor sink, fridge, and built-in barbecue.

Jason and Karen won the “Why I DirectBuy” sweepstakes by submitting a video and written testimonial that shared how DirectBuy brought life-changing savings throughout the stages of their home build. Various rooms came to life just as they wished with their own design ideas due to our wide selection of high-quality products. With more than 1,000 entries, the Mongrains’ video was selected as the overall winner for its creativity, originality and faithfulness on the topic.

“I was shocked to learn we were selected as the winners of the “Why I Direct Buy” sweepstakes,” said Jason Mongrain. “DirectBuy’s member experience never fails to impress us, and we’re eager to put the final touches on different areas in our new home thanks to DirectBuy.”

“Congratulations, Jason and Karen! Your story accurately portrays how DirectBuy strives to enhance consumers’ lifestyles each and every day,” Mike Bornhorst, CEO of DirectBuy. “We remain committed to helping bring members’ inspirations to life through our unrivaled savings, service and selection.”
