The UK’s largest digital marketplace for new and used cars, Auto Trader, is launching a nationwide snap-to-win competition for one lucky member of the public to win a brand-new car this Christmas.
A Fiat 500, which receives over 24,000 ad views a day on Auto Trader, has been gift-wrapped in a box, complete with an Auto Trader live price tracker affixed to it. The car will take to the road, touring London, Birmingham and Manchester between 17th – 19th December.
To be in with a chance of winning the Fiat 500, all members of the public need to do is snap a photo of the Christmas present with the live price tracker when they see it in town, and upload their picture, tagging Auto Trader UK #autotraderxmas on Twitter or Instagram by Friday 20th December. If the price tracker shows the correct pre-haggled price of the car, they’ll be entered into a prize draw to win it.
The festively wrapped car, complete with Christmas bow, will be touring the following locations in the run-up to Christmas:
Tuesday 17th December - London
Wednesday 18th December – Birmingham
Thursday 19th December – Manchester
The price tracker on display fluctuates between the RRP of the car and the actual pre-haggled price shown on Auto Trader.
