Maytag® Brand Celebrates a Decade of Dependability at Sears
Sweepstakes Winners Will Receive New Kitchen Appliances for Life

Maytag® brand and Sears will turn dreams into reality when five people each win a new Maytag kitchen suite every 10 years for life. The Maytag Decade of Dependability Sweepstakes pays homage to the Maytag brand heritage of being built strong to last long, while acknowledging the 10-year milestone of the first Maytag brand kitchen appliance sold at Sears.

Kitchen dreams may come in all shapes and sizes. But with Maytag brand appliances and Sears, dreams become an everyday reality. Each winner will receive a full suite of Maytag kitchen appliances including a dishwasher, an over-the-range microwave, a choice of either a freestanding range or a wall-oven/cooktop combination and a refrigerator.

"Our full line of kitchen appliances from dishwashers to refrigerators provide high-quality products for consumers who demand reliability and dependability," said Audrey Reed-Granger, director of public relations for Maytag brand.

Maytag brand appliances are built to stand the test of time and represent the essence of powerful engineering throughout the kitchen. The durable Maytag® Gemini® range offers high performance and flexibility with two separate ovens; the Maytag® Jetclean® dishwasher features the finest filtration (1) to eliminate the chore of pre-washing and re-washing dishes; and the Maytag® Ice2O™ French door bottom-freezer refrigerator is the first of its kind with external ice and water.

"Maytag brand continues to bring innovations in kitchen appliances to our consumers. We are delighted that the sweepstakes allows our consumer to experience Maytag brand innovations for a lifetime," continued Reed-Granger.

Winners will be determined in a random drawing to be held on or about July 15, 2008. The approximate retail value for a Maytag brand kitchen suite as of June 2008 is $5,200.
