$100,000! I’m happy to announce that Ana B., a college student from Ft. Lauderdale, won the grand prize in Sprint’s Rake in the Cash Sweepstakes. Ana is taking home a check for a whopping $100,000. Seriously, all it took was a text message.
Ana was in an Orlando Sprint store killing time while her boyfriend had his phone serviced. She saw information about the Sprint sweeps and texted the word CASH to the specified number to enter the sweepstakes. Then her good luck kicked into overdrive.
Annie Garcia, Sprint’s southeast regional president, presented Ana with a really, really BIG check in Orlando today. “We’re thrilled that someone in the Orlando area won the grand prize,” said Garcia. “We value all of our customers at Sprint and this sweepstakes was a great way to show our appreciation.” As it turns out, Ana and her family have been Sprint customers for a very long time and in this case, she got a very big thanks.
Ana is a sophomore at the University of Central Florida studying business administration. When I spoke with Ana and asked how she would spend her winnings, Ana said she’s “paying off school first” and will use the rest to invest in her future.
The Rake in the Cash Sweepstakes was held in the fall of 2018. In addition to Ana, there were an additional 150 winners who will each receive $1,000.
