The names Kyle DeSmith(John Deere Financial), Doyle Moore(I.T.S.),Paul Kaufmann(Wisconsin Aviation), and Jimmy Coburn(district superintendent field sales unfi) have something in common. They all put their business cards in a container to win 50,000 IHG rewards(originally called priority club) points at a Holiday Inn in McKinney,Tx. The winner will be announced after a drawing when 25 business cards have been accumulated.
For those who might interpret this as an invasion of privacy, think again. If you put your name on a card and then drop it into a transparent container, there can be no legal or implied expectation of privacy. These salesmen want their name in circulation to increase the likelihood of a profitable transaction and to improve their professional reputation.
In fact, I know an entire school district who is looking for a charter pilot that involves foreign exchange students.
