March 13, 2014 6:00 PM EDT

Homeowners looking to upgrade their homes can now enter to win new appliances thanks to a $15,000 sweepstakes offered by American Home Shield, the nation’s largest provider of home warranties. The sweepstakes is the second of its kind to be launched in just six months.

“We see that our customers and consumers commonly put off appliance upgrades,” said Philipp von Holtzendorff-Fehling, chief marketing officer for American Home Shield. “This sweepstakes was started as a fun way to engage homeowners and give them a chance to make some of these home improvements with trusted brands like American Home Shield and GE Appliances. The first sweepstakes was so successful that we decided to conduct another one and give homeowners another chance to win.”

As part of the company’s You Pick Two Giveaway, now through June 2, 2014, one lucky winner will be chosen each month to receive their choice of two GE appliances (up to $5,000 total manufacturer’s suggested retail price) plus $200 toward installation. Random drawings will take place on March 31, April 28 and June 2.
