Esurance is giving the cash away in a Twitter Sweeps to one lucky winner. The #EsuranceSave30 hashtag is still top trending on Twitter today.

The Esurance $1.5 Million Twitter Giveaway Ad Worked

How many Super Bowl 2014 ads can claim that they are still talked about today? Not that many. If an ad did not make it under the top 10 in any of the main Ad rankings it is likely a dud. Esurance ran the first ad after the Super Bowl game coverage and their strategy seems to work pretty good. 

Technically the Esurance ad is not a Super Bowl ad. They spin the story in a way that they saved $1.5m by not placing an ad in the Super Bowl. Now the company can give the savings back to you. Esurance likes to pass savings on to you. To emphasis this message they are giving away the cool $1.5m. To enter the sweeps you just have to tweet #EsuranceSave30 before 1 a.m. PT on Tuesday (2/4). The fine print on the big give away can be found here.

Actor John Krasinski (The Office) stars in the Esurance commercial. Watch the Esurance ad below.

Super Bowl 2014 is history and it ended with a historic win of the Seattle Seahawks. The big game will be played in the Metlife stadium in East Rutherford. It was the first outdoor, cold-weather Super Bowl but not the coldest in history. Watch all Super Bowl 2014 commercials in our Super Bowl 2014 Ad Gallery.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
