TXU offers residents chance to help their neighbors, win big

Texas electricity provider TXU Energy announced that its customers will have the chance to win some money just by helping out their neighbors.

The new TXU Energy Make Your Move $5,000 Sweepstakes started in early April and will run through June 16.

Customers will have the chance to win $5,000 just by posting reviews of their favorite local businesses on a new TXU site designed to help people just moving into a town. There will even be a $50 weekly sweepstakes for the same site, giving customers plenty of chances to win.

"Whether you’re new to Texas, moving to a new neighborhood or staying right where you live, our new social media initiative gives you two distinct benefits," Michael Grasso, chief marketing officer at TXU, said in a statement. "It offers you a way to pick up or share great local insights – and chances to win some extra cash just for connecting."

The Make Your Move Sweepstakes is only one of several TXU efforts to engage their customers and help save them money, including move-in bonuses and energy saving options like the Brighten iThermostat.
