30th Anniversary Celebration

Join us in celebrating!

We’re making it through COVID, and FreedomCar turns 30!

As part of FreedomCar’s 30th anniversary, we want to support the treasured institutions and establishments none of us have been able to support for the past year.  We’re investing in as many as we can for the next six months, and offering you the chance to enjoy the benefits when everyone feels safe once again.  We’re inviting you to play to win gift certificates all around town. We hope you enjoy our take on giving out the keys to Charm City.

Family owned and operated since 1991, we take great pride in our continued growth, our high-quality standards, our high-trust reliability, our dedicated employees and our unwavering commitment to you. To know us, is to know we love our city. We created this giveaway contest to do something that would be fun for our customers — and good for Baltimore.


How It Works

On the 30th of every month during our celebration, we’ll give away tickets for featured Baltimore destinations and restaurants to winners who correctly answer trivia questions about Baltimore History, which will be emailed out to our newsletter mailing list.

Each month we’ll feature a new restaurant, venue, museum or attraction chosen from popular places all around the city and the greater Baltimore area. (There will be one trivia question for each destination.) Sign up for our email list now, if you’re not already receiving our emails.

How to Win

Contestants who submit a correct answer to the trivia question win a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to a local destination. Five people will be selected in a random drawing from all eligible entries that contain a correct answer to the Trivia Challenge. We’ll then notify you by phone or email within 24 hours to let you know you’ve won.

You have three (3) days to respond and claim your prize. If we cannot reach the winner, an alternate winner will be selected by random drawing from all remaining eligible entries.

You may only win once.

We’ll send out the monthly email at 3:00pm (ET) on the 30th day of the month, starting on March 30, 2021 and ending on August 30, 2021. So mark your calendars for a repeating event!

PLEASE NOTE: While our emails will go out at 3:00pm ET, we cannot be held responsible for, nor can we control, delivery delays at receiving servers.

join to Play

If you’re already receiving our emails, you’re already eligible to play. If you’re not on our mailing list, signing up is easy — just enter your email below.

Every once in awhile we’ll send out relevant and/or useful updates. We will never spam you. We you.


Eligibility

We’re keeping this simple, fair and fun.

  • The contest is open to anyone on our newsletter mailing list within a seventy-five (75) mile radius of Baltimore, MD, who are of legal age of majority in the jurisdiction in which they reside (and at least 18 years old) at the time of entry. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.
  • Our employees/family may not participate — we’ll celebrate with them separately.
  • If you or anyone in your household have won once, you can’t win again. (We call this the “No Hogging the Keys” rule.)

Okay, so these are the basics. For the lawyers amongst us who require it to be complex, fair and less fun, please see the bottom of this page for all the stuff we know we need to say.
