It was a sweet, unexpected surprise for Shirley Salter as she found out she was the winner of FATWIN’s $25,000 sweepstake sponsored by PERQ. Shirley, a resident of Monroeville, Alabama was presented the winnings on April 22nd, 2021 at Farmers Home Furniture. This comes after Shirley was randomly selected after she completed a “Scratch and Save” online entry on the Farmers Home Furniture website, who leverages PERQ software, in September of 2020.
While shopping on the stores website, a pop-up scratch and save promotion appeared. Not thinking much of it, Shirley filled out the form and forgot all about it shortly after it was complete.
“I got a few emails and calls saying I was the winner of $25,000,” Shirley recounts. “I immediately thought this was a scam as nothing like this ever happens to me. I asked for a timestamp of my submitted form, and when I received the confirmed information, I was in complete shock!”
Robbie Cook, Director of Marketing and Advertising for Farmers Home Furniture was delighted to know the winner came from their stores. “We are thrilled to be able to help bring this opportunity to one of our customers and help change their life forever,” says Cook.
“My advice for anyone hesitant about entering the FATWIN Sweepstakes when they see it, do it! You never know when you could be the big winner.”
Shirley says her first big purchase is going to be a new refrigerator. After that, she is looking to take a much needed vacation with her family. “2020 was a tough year for everyone and I am so thankful this opportunity presented itself, it will be a huge help to me and my loved ones.”

Andy sat down with Rachel Smith at Elevate Ventures and reflected on PERQ’s development and talked about how he has helped create an award winning company culture.
