Question Revisit: specific question about possessive vs. definite article

My workbook asked me to translate a paragraph about car sales advertising which contained the following sentence:

English: Take advantage of our end-of-the-year offer!

The answer the book gives for the translation is: ¡Aproveche la oferta de fin de año!

My question is about the use of "la". Why not "nuestra"? Would it be okay to write: ¡Aproveche nuestra oferta de fin de año!
