They say hard work pays off… and that’s definitely true for Erica Jaffe of Benhar Office Interiors, who’s taking home an entirely free dream vacation thanks to her efforts as part of Gunlocke’s Ultimate Accelerate Bucket List Giveaway. As a winner, the New York-based dealer sales representative (DSR) can choose from several “bucket list” luxury vacation packages, complete with spending money and transportation.

The incentive, which ran exclusively for Gunlocke’s network of dealer sales representatives from July 2014 through December 2015, gave DSRs the opportunity to transform accepted purchase orders into entries towards a “bucket list” vacation. Participants could “claim” chances in a quarterly drawing whenever a sale was registered via the Gunlocke Accelerate dealer-incentive system, located within, the company’s dealer portal.

“When I have a project that requires wood casegoods, Gunlocke is always my go-to manufacturer,” says Jaffe. “The quality of their products is unmatched in the industry, and working with their team is always a pleasure. Their customer service is simply superb.”

Winners in Gunlocke’s Ultimate Accelerate Bucket List Giveaway contest received a trip for themselves and a travel companion to one of eight locations, each with a special experience built into the itinerary. They also received $1,000 in spending money and transportation, including a rental vehicle, if needed.

“I’m planning to book the trip to Costa Rica,” adds Jaffe. “I’m incredibly excited. It’s a trip that has been on my personal bucket list for quite some time, and I’m so thankful to Gunlocke for helping me make it happen.”

Jaffe isn’t the only one expressing her appreciation – Gunlocke is just as thankful to its DSRs.

“We couldn’t do what we do without our dealer sales representatives,” says Tim Costello, vice president of field sales, Gunlocke. “Their incredible work ethic and dedication is the backbone of our success, and we wanted to take the opportunity to recognize and celebrate the most exceptional efforts in our sales network. We’re glad we were able to show our gratitude and let some of our DSRs treat themselves – they deserve it.”
