When I was first approached by my bosses about the Scotiahockey NHL Debit Card campaign, I was most certainly a little dubious myself. More so than anything else, the big hang-up for me was how getting involved would affect my already jam-packed schedule.
I mean, when I’m not obsessively refreshing my Twitter timeline, I’m either responding to angry commenters who have taken issue with my blog posts or searching up Markus Naslund-related memorabilia on eBay. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it. Then there’s the whole ‘having to leave my mother’s basement’ ordeal, to boot.
But despite all of these extenuating circumstances I decided to give Scotiabank a shot, and signing up for my ScotiaHockey NHL Debit Card was remarkably easy. In a matter of minutes, I was dotting my i’s and crossing my t’s. Now when I order a pizza or pull the trigger on that signed Naslund headshot, I can reach into my wallet and pull out my trusty Vancouver Canucks-themed card.
There are other benefits, too.
You can go here and quickly read up on how you can take your fanhood to a whole now level while potentially reaping all sorts of other rewards. Every purchase gets you an entry into the Scotiabank Hockey Adventure of a Lifetime contest, where you could win a great hockey experience, or hockey things like NHL swag, tickets to regular season hockey games, and NHL GameCenter Live subscriptions. Can you believe that?
And hey, you never know — you could be the lucky guy who wins a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals, or next year’s NHL Face-off celebrations. You might even be the next winner Hockey Adventure of a Lifetime and meet some new friends like Trevor Letowski, Trent Klatt, and Murray Baron (*)
(*) Don’t hold me to this, though. For all I know it could Jeff Cowan, Harold Druken, Marc Chouinard, Drake Berehowsky, or any number of obscure Canucks from the past.
