Discover has awarded its grand prize, million dollar winner of the company’s inaugural 2010 “It Pays to Discover Everyday Giveaway” sweepstakes, which launched in January 2010. Lillian Pariseault, of New Port Richey, FL was awarded $1 million for a purchase made on her Discover Card at Haller’s Automotive in New Port Richey. She is 86, retired and lives with her youngest daughter. Harit Talwar, President of U.S. Cards for Discover, presented Lillian with a $1 million check. But if you missed out on your chance to win the sweepstakes in 2010, don’t worry because Discover announced it will be kicking off its 2011 Discover Everyday Giveaway contest, offering even more prizes, more chances to win, and the opportunity to give back to public schools. In addition to daily prizes, one monthly winner will be chosen randomly to receive $25,000, which Discover will match with a $25,000 donation to a public school of the winner’s choosing. In early 2012, one lucky winner will be chosen randomly for the $1 million grand prize in cash.
