TXU Energy Cash Rewards Sweepstakes Gets Cooking in Waco, Texas; Sweepstakes Winner Savors $10,000 in Extra Cash for Posting on Facebook

What does $10,000 taste like? One food-savvy Texas electricity customer

and her family will find out sooner rather than later, now that she has

won the TXU

Energy Cash Rewards Sweepstakes. Deborah Stewart shared on Facebook

that if she won this kind of extra cash, she would remodel her kitchen

to better fit her family life and her passion for cooking. Her comment

entered her in the sweepstakes, and she has been randomly selected as

the grand-prize winner.

Stewart is a 30-year TXU Energy customer who lives in Waco, Texas. She

joined TXU Energy today in her home to celebrate the new kitchen she and

her family will soon enjoy thanks to the $10,000 check the company

presented to her. The company is also providing Stewart with an energy

efficiency expert to help ensure that her new kitchen is as energy

efficient as possible since, according to the Department

of Energy, home electronics and appliances like dishwashers,

refrigerators and water heaters are responsible for roughly 20 percent

of your electricity bill.

“When I first found out I won, I didn’t believe it,” said Stewart.

“Before this, I don’t think I have ever won anything in my life! At

first I didn’t tell anybody, not even my husband, because I thought it

seemed too good to be true. After a few more calls and emails, I

realized it was for real, and I was on cloud nine. This is great news,

and it’s happening just as my husband and I celebrate our 35th

anniversary. We’ve been TXU Energy customers for nearly all of our

married life, and winning this is one more reason we’re glad we’ve

stayed with them over all these years.”

The sweepstakes celebrated the company’s five-year, $100 million

milestone in giving cash back to its customers through the Cash Back

Loyalty Reward program. It also marked the 2012 distribution of more

than $36 million to customers on TXU Energy electricity plans eligible

for cash back. Earlier this year, thousands received as much as 3

percent or more of their annual electricity purchases in cash back in

the form of Visa® prepaid cards.

“Like our Cash Back Loyalty Reward program does for hundreds of

thousands, this sweepstakes is moving cash back into the hands of a

valued customer and supporting the economy where she and her family

live, work and shop,” said Michael Grasso, chief marketing officer, TXU

Energy. “While our grand prize was assigned randomly, we think it’s

great that it’s going to a customer — and a family — who has stayed with

us for three decades. Loyalty like this is truly invaluable, and we’re

glad to have the opportunity to reward it in an exciting and meaningful


TXU Energy received thousands of entries in the sweepstakes, which ran

According to the ClickFox

2012 Brand Loyalty Survey, 54 percent of consumers say the best way
