Get ‘Cash for Christmas’ with Arriva & Pete the Crimbo Lizard this December

Fancy getting your hands on some cash to wrap up your Christmas shopping this December? Then keep your eyes peeled for a very festive Lizard on your Arriva bus journey.

January pay day is a whole decade away and as Christmas draws near, we could all do with a nice little cash boost. Well you’re in luck! We’ve teamed up with Arriva Liverpool to give away ‘Cash For Christmas’ this December and the one and only Pete Price is the man, or should we say Lizard with the readies.

On Monday 9th and Monday 16th December, Pete the Festive Lizard will be out and about on an Arriva service in Liverpool and he’s got a cash prize to give away to one lucky winner. All you have to do, is be the first person to find Pete, snap a selfie with, share it on any social media platform (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) tagging in both @TheGuideLpool and @arrivanorthwest, show it to Pete – and you’re quids in!

The buses were buzzing and plenty of people located Pete last Monday (1st December 2019) but NONE of them tagged in the right social media accounts – therefore, we’ve got a ROLL OVER!

On Monday 9th December, Pete will have a whopping £500 cash to give away. And all you have to do is take a selfie with him! The following Monday Pete will be loaded with another £250 cash to give away. So if you’re not first in line this week, keep your eyes peeled the following week.

To help you get into the festive spirit and enjoy all the events and activities the city has to offer, Arriva is offering a number of brand new tickets types. Reduced Family tickets and Two Together tickets could save you a pretty penny, more info here. Head this way to check out Christmas and New Year bus services from Arriva. 

With an extra few quid in the bank, why not plan a fabulously festive day out in Liverpool? Go on, treat yourself, it’s Christmas! Arriva buses get you there this Christmas with lots of regular services, great value day tickets, free wifi and USB charging ports on board. Skip the car parks and jump on the bus this Christmas in Liverpool.
