LUCKY Killarney couple Sean and Pearl Myers are gearing up for a fantastic 2014 after picking up a €20,000 Toyota Auris in Bowlers, Killarney, without having to pay a cent.
The couple who live in Oakhill, Ballydribbeen were the January winners of the Topaz Play or Park Loyalty Scheme and, as coincidence would have it, they are the town's second winners of a car in the Topaz giveaway. Their win follows hot on the heels of Michael Dinneen who was the winner of last September's competition.
Speaking this week Sean said he was shocked when he got the call from Topaz. "I drive a van with Myers Haulage so I'm up and down the country all the time. But I didn't expect to get the call I got I can tell you. I was totally gobsmacked, speechless when I heard I'd won the car," he said.
The couple have three children Adele (16), Keith (12) and Amy (10), and had been thinking of getting a new car: "We had been looking, but we hadn't found anything. We're not looking anymore, that's for sure. So the timing was great and it's a mighty boost to get at this time of the year," said Sean.
As part of the Play or Park competition Topaz customers download a special App and pick up points for every eligible purchase. As the points gather customers can choose to either play their points for a chance at the monthly prize or park them for next month's game.
