H&R Block and Reggaeton Recording Artist “Wisin” Ring in Refund Season with “1,000 Win $1,000 Daily Sweepstakes”
Sweepstakes awards $1 million a day over one month
Kicking off tax Refund Season like never before, H&R Block (NYSE: HRB), the world’s largest consumer tax preparation company, today unveiled a new music video-style advertisement featuring Reggaeton artist, Wisin. The advertisement celebrates Refund Season and promotes an early season promotion where 1,000 people will win $1,000 a day between January 16 and February 15, the equivalent of $1 million a day for the first month of tax season.
To promote the sweepstakes, Wisin re-recorded his hit song “Piquete.” In this special version of the song, which is featured in the new H&R Block advertisement, Wisin replaced the term “Piquete” for “Billete” to encourage Latinos to file their taxes early and walk in for a chance at the daily drawing.
“This partnership represents my shared values with H&R Block – reliability, trust, and giving back to our communities,” said Wisin. “The ability to win extra cash by filing your taxes early shows that H&R Block’s top priority is getting its clients’ money back.”
Anyone who has their taxes prepared at an H&R Block office between now and February 15, 2016 can enter in the daily drawings for a chance at the $1,000 that will be awarded daily to 1,000 people.
“H&R Block gets our clients the most money back at tax time, guaranteed,” said Kathy Collins, H&R Block Chief Marketing Officer. “This year, there’s even more reason to celebrate with the chance to win a grand in your hand. No other tax company has ever awarded this much money in prizes before. We’re thrilled Wisin is helping us encourage people to file early for a chance to win.”
H&R Block encourages customers to file early to protect against tax refund fraud.
