RYE BROOK, NY - August 24, 2010 - Marsha Tracy, online shopper from Glendale, Calif., has been named the biggest online cash spender by eBillme™, the safest way to shop online and pay with cash using online banking and walk-in locations. As the winner of the Hey Big Spender contest, proving that when given an option to pay securely with cash consumers will spend more, Marsha will receive the $5,000 grand prize towards her $10,150 online order of home appliances from eBillme retailer AJ Madison.
“We congratulate Marsha for not only being our contest winner but for her decision to shop debt-free,” says Samer Forzley, Vice President of Marketing for eBillme. “We wanted to give online shoppers an opportunity to win cash for spending with cash while helping merchants capture the high order values that eBillme delivers.
