First Up: American Express Hosts #EveryDayMoments Mother's Day Contest; 50 Winners & their Guests Get an"Epic Everyday Getaway" to NYC with not-so-everyday experiences, performances and celeb appearances
Maroon 5 to Headline Amex #EveryDayMoments Concert Streamed Live from NYC
NEW YORK, April 2, 2014 --
American Express is now accepting applications for the new Amex EveryDaySM Credit Card, which was announced at last month's Oscars. To celebrate, the company is launching a year-long campaign to shine a spotlight on America's #EveryDayMoments – from quality time with the kids to a night out with friends.
The campaign kicks off with a Mother's Day "selfie & snapshots" photo contest with an epic prize – a getaway to NYC for 50 winners and their guests (100 total). American Express will continue to recognize and reward consumers for sharing their #EveryDayMoments throughout the year with a series of special, themed contests, sweeps and unique experiences, like a live concert with Maroon 5 streamed nationally on June 20, 2014, and a soon-to-be-announced Father's Day Sweeps.
"The Amex EveryDay Card is the card designed for every day spending – from trips to the grocery store to a spontaneous afternoon visit to an ice cream shop with the kids," said Elizabeth Rutledge, EVP, Card Products & Benefits, American Express. "We know all of these everyday moments add up to make life truly rewarding, and we wanted to create a platform for sharing and celebrating them in special ways."
Mother's Day Winners Take Manhattan for the "Epic EveryDay Getaway" with a three-day NYC experience, including VIP Maroon 5 Concert In celebration of Mother's Day and all things "mom," American Express is teaming up with Maroon 5, DryBar, InterContinental® New York Times Square, Rent the Runway, and SoulCycle to create the "Epic EveryDay Getaway." To enter, consumers visit AmexEveryDayMoments.com and share a "selfie" or other snapshot photo of their #EverydayMoments that celebrate the spirit of Mother's Day, along with a caption.
Submissions will be accepted for the next 20 days, and then 50 winners will be announced in time for Mother's Day. The Epic Everyday Getaway prize will take place June 18-21, 2014 in NYC. Each of the winners can bring one guest to join the all-star line-up of experiences that includes:
