Come over to our house this weekend: TD Canada Trust

Drop by the TD Canada Trust “Comfort Home” at various GTA locations this weekend for a chance to win prizes including five cash prizes of $1,000 and a grand prize of $15,000

Visitors can also meet TD Canada Trust’s Mobile Mortgage Specialists

May 6, 2009, Toronto, ON – By now you may have seen TD Canada Trust’s popular TV ad featuring two grumpy bench-sitters “complaining” about the convenience of TD Canada Trust’s Mobile Mortgage Specialists. “I am too important to leave the comfort of my own home.” “Bring my groceries. Bring me pizza.” “Bring me a mortgage.”

The bench-sitters probably wouldn’t like it (they’d think it was too “convenient”), but this weekend it’s not just the Mobile Mortgage Specialists who can come to you, TD Canada Trust is bringing GTA residents the whole house, green chair and all.

The TD Canada Trust Comfort Home, a mobile glass house featuring the famous TD Canada Trust comfortable green chair, will be travelling around the Greater Toronto Area between Thursday, May 7 and Sunday, May 10. So whether you’re running to catch a train, doing some weekend shopping, or brunching downtown for Mother’s Day – be sure to keep an eye out for the Comfort Home and take some time to drop in. Who knows? You just may walk away with a chance to be $15,000 richer!

“TD Canada Trust makes financing a home more comfortable for customers by "bringing the bank" to them through hundreds of Mobile Mortgage Specialists,” says Joan Dal Bianco, Vice President, Real Estate Secured Lending, TD Canada Trust. “We want people to know they have the option of talking about a mortgage where and when it’s convenient for them, so we decided to have a little fun this weekend by bringing our Comfort Home to convenient locations around the GTA so people can easily drop by. The added bonus is that anyone who pops in has a chance to win a great cash prize, which they can choose to put toward their monthly mortgage or rent payments.”

About the contest:

At the Comfort Home locations, people will have the chance to win up to $15,000 in the “Comfort’s Covered” contest. All they have to do is visit the Comfort Home, sit back in the comfy green chair and use the remote control to enter the code on the TV to determine eligibility. If eligible, the entrant’s name will be put in a draw to win the grand prize of $15,000 or a chance at one of five secondary prizes of $1,000 each.

The Comfort Home will be at:
  • Brookfield Place on Thursday, May 7th at 8:00am – 6:00pm
