KUA Celebrates Partnership with Customer Contest

KISSIMMEE , Fla., Dec. 8, 2006 – Customers who pay their Kissimmee Utility Authority bill at an area 7-Eleven convenience store this month will be entered to win a free month of utility service. It’s KUA’s version of a holiday bonus.

KUA has formed a strategic alliance with 7-Eleven to offer its customers hundreds of convenient bill payment locations throughout Florida, including 16 in Kissimmee. Each store contains a Vcom or “virtual commerce” kiosk where a bill can be paid using cash, checking account or ATM debit card.

To help customers get acquainted with the service, KUA is waiving the normal $1.50 transaction fee between Nov. 1, 2006 and Jan. 31, 2007.

Each month during the three-month promotion, KUA will randomly draw the name of one residential customer who uses the Vcom kiosk to pay their bill. The winning customer will receive a credit on their account equal to the amount of their last monthly bill.

Contest details can be found in a bill stuffer inserted in December utility bills or online at http://www.kua.com/contest.

Founded in 1901, KUA (www.kua.com) is Florida’s sixth largest community-owned utility providing electric and telecommunication services to 170,000 residents in five Central Florida counties.
