THRIFTY KICKS OFF SWEEPSTAKES IN FEVERISH STYLE MONDAY

 THRIFTY KICKS OFF SWEEPSTAKES IN FEVERISH STYLE MONDAY
 TULSA, Okla., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Football fever will become epidemic among travelers today (Sept. 14) as the Thrifty Car Rental Holiday Bowl Sweepstakes kicks off with a day-long "Football 'n' Fun" promotion at Thrifty locations across the country.
 Customer service personnel will be conducting foam football passing contests and blowing whistles on themselves for trumped up infractions as ways to give customers opportunities to earn free car class upgrades, discounts or other prizes. Some Thrifty rental centers also will be offering additional contests, entertainment and complimentary food and beverages.
 The grand prize winner of the sweepstakes will reap a new Chrysler Concorde and a five-day/four-night trip for two to San Diego. The prize package also includes airfare on Continental, Hilton accommodations, tickets to the Thrifty Car Rental Holiday Bowl, car rental, $500 in spending money and tickets to the San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park. The approximate retail value of the prize is $23,000.
 No purchase is necessary to enter the sweepstakes and official entry forms are available at Thrifty Car Rental locations and selected editions of USA TODAY. Entries must be received by Nov. 15 and a drawing will be conducted about five days later.
 Many Thrifty rental centers also will be conducting their own local drawings for a similar prize package which will include everything except the cash and the Chrysler Concorde.
 Thrifty has more than 800 car rental locations and will soon be in over 40 countries. It became the official title sponsor of the Holiday Bowl in 1991. This year's contest will be held on Dec. 30 and will match the champion of the Western Athletic conference with the third place finisher in the Big 10.
