One Avon lady wanted a brand new “slug bug” so badly that she went on a selling spree to get a brand new 2013 VW Convertible Beetle.

Maria Yepez tells KSBW.com that she printed off a picture of the car she wanted and posted it all over her house as a reminder of her goal.

The Avon salesperson took the old school approach to sales by going door-to-door selling Avon’s Skin So Soft Bug Guard, that doubles as a sunblock. She worked her way from the town of Salinas, Calif. all the way north to San Francisco.

The aggressive sales approach paid off. Yepez sold more than $50,000 of the bug repellent in 3 months to win the brand new “slug bug.” She says the new car will become her Avon car.
