WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Consumers are getting help with their spring-cleaning tasks, courtesy of food retailers. Several chains have launched contests and sweepstakes awarding free house cleaning services.
Hy-Vee here has partnered with Libman, a manufacturer of brooms, mops and other cleaning equipment, for a contest that awards weekly house cleaning services for one year. Shoppers can enter by filling out an online entry form on the Hy-Vee's website. The winner will be chosen at random. The promotion kicked off April 13 and runs through June 13.
At Lowes Food Stores, Winston-Salem, N.C., shoppers can fill out an online registration form to win $500 worth of home cleaning services.
"Lowes is making spring easy on your budget and healthy for your home," Lowes states in promotional materials.
The Lowes contest runs through May 3.
