12 Days of Christmas Competition!

Christmas is just around the corner and to celebrate we are bringing you an extra special competition!

Our “12 Days Of Christmas” competition will run from the 1st December to the 12th December inclusive and we will be giving away at least one prize every day. I know it’s not the ‘true’ 12 days of christmas but we wanted to try and get everyone’s prize to them in time for Christmas!

On each of the 12 days we will pose a question. The winner of each prize will be chosen at random. The question will be posted at random times over the 12 days so now would be a good time to sign up for our Windows Live Alerts! If we have more than one prize on a given day then we shall pose more than one question at different times.

We’ll endeavour to post the details of the winner on the following day.

Here are some of the prizes we’ll be offering and who they have been donated by:

3 Excellent software titles from Astraware. Astraware Sudoku, Big Box of Blox and My Little Tank

Each day we’ll tell you more about the prize you can win that day and about the company that donated it along with the question that you need to answer.

Keep your eyes peeled for clues being dropped between now and the start of the competition and check back regularly to see when we pose the question. Remember: the first with the correct answer will be the winner.

There are a couple of prizes that will only be open to UK residents due to regional restrictions ie. SIM Locks and Power requirements, but we’ll make that clear each day.

The above list isn’t final and we hope to offer MORE prizes along the way. In fact if anyone would like to add to our prize list please get in touch and we’ll ensure that we make it worth your while! Thank you very much to everyone that has already contributed!

Don’t forget, you are always welcome to contact us through our feedback form if there is anything you want to talk to us about or if you want to offer us products for review.

Finally, we hope you enjoy the competition and wish everyone a Merry Christmas or for those of you that don’t celebrate Christmas – Seasons Greetings! Thank you to everyone that has supported our site over the past few years. We hope to bring you more news and reviews in 2007!

    MicroSD Card Competition!

    We have decided to run a competition for our readers. Prizes are as follows:

  • 1st Prize: 1gb MicroSD card and adapter
  • Four runner up prizes of 512mb MicroSD cards
  • The competition is pretty easy, here is what you have to do:

    Within each post for the next week there will be a code number somewhere, it could be in text or in an image. All you have to do is collect 5 code numbers and email them to me with your name. 5 winners will be chosen by me at random. I will them email the winners as well as posting their names on the blog.

    The only ‘catch’ is that I will remove the code number from the post from a previous day when I post the next code number so you’ll have to check back each day to see what the code is, you can’t just find them all on day 7! I’ll post 7 codes in total but you only have to give me any 5 to qualify.

    Any questions then email me.

    The (not so) small print: Only one entry per person. We will not retain your email address and pester you with offers, we will not give or sell your email address to anyone else.

    Matt
