The 92 KQRS $50,000 Eliminator

The 92 KQRS $50,000 Eliminator

92 prizes are up for grabs and one of them could be yours…. a trip around the world, thousands in cash, sports cars, a pet shark, and so much more…! It’s the 92 KQRS $50,000 Eliminator  – presented by North American Banking Company and MyPillow.

Congrats to our Eliminator grand prize winner, Paul G. of Shakopee!

Paul qualified for the grand prize drawing on 3/18 when he eliminated prize #78, Tour de Minnesota. (Good choice Paul) As our grand prize winner, Paul receives the last remaining grand prize which just happens to be prize #16 – Cold Hard Cash (actually it’ll probably be a check) – but either way it’s $40,900 before taxes. Congrats, Paul!

  3. The 9th caller each time has to eliminate one of the prizes remaining on the master list… (choose wisely!)
  4. If caller 9 is successful, they win $100 and also qualify to win the last grand prize standing at the end of the contest!

Once 91 of the 92 prizes on the list are eliminated, all 91 daily winners will be in the running to win that last remaining grand prize… BUT, you must be listening to win it!  On March 24th, be listening for your name to be read during the KQ Morning Show sometime between 7am – 9am.  If your name is read on-air, then you have 9 minutes to call us at 651-989-7625 or 651-989-7855 in order to be declared the Grand Prize Winner of the 92 KQRS $50,000 Eliminator contest!
