(LARGO, FL - March 14, 2013)Valpak, a leader in local print and digital coupons, is teaming up with multi-Emmy® and Gracie award-winning television host, Sandra Lee for the “Great Grocery Giveaway”, offering consumers a chance to win $5,000 and the Sandra Lee Magazine.

Sandra Lee, editor-in-chief of Sandra Lee Magazine and a New York Times bestselling author of 25 books, including her upcoming title, Every Dish Delivers, will appear on more than 38,000,000 Valpak envelopes delivered through the United States to let consumers know they can go to Valpak.com to enter the contest.

An internationally-acclaimed home and food expert, Sandra will offer advice and tips on both Sandra Lee and Valpak social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter, and will have an exclusive Facebook chat on March 14 at 8 p.m. ET.

“Most savers are familiar with the monthly Blue Envelope® filled with offers but they may not know Valpak.com is another option to help save money at the grocery store as well,” said Lisa Sullivan, vice president of marketing at Valpak. Consumers can browse a special selection of recipes for Sandra Lee and print grocery offers from Valpak.com for select ingredients.

“Groceries are one of the most popular requests we have from consumers,” said Sullivan. “Families can easily save more money, along with the local coupons our consumers are used to finding on restaurants, automobile repair, home services and more in the envelope, online and mobile apps,” she said.

Sandra, who came from humble beginnings, grew up with a grandmother who showed her not only how to cook, but taught her the value of a dollar, showing her how to use coupons from an early age.

“My magazine is packed with tips that save money and make cooking easier and less expensive—just like Valpak is packed with offers that help do the same,” she said.

Valpak envelopes promoting the Great Grocery Giveaway arrive in homes now through March 25. The sweepstakes will run on Valpak.com through April 5, 2013.
