This Monday, Debt-free Scholar’s computer giveaway started. Last night at 11:59 PM, five days and 1,475 entries later, the contest closed.
I am very grateful to everyone who participated, and I hope you all enjoyed completing the scavenger hunt as much as I enjoyed planning it. Throughout the week, I had the pleasure of communicating with many of you through Twitter, Facebook, and email as you completed the scavenger hunt. I hope to meet more of you as we continue learning about college together.
The Winner Is…
I really wish I could give this package to all of you, but unfortunately that is impossible. Therefore, I choose the winner this morning using Random.org. To review, the winner will receive an HP Pavilion Dv6 laptop, an HP Mini 110 netbook, a Timbuk2 backpack, and a copy of Syncables software. All combined, this package is worth more than $1,000!
The winner of this spectacular bundle is Anne J.! Congratulations, I hope you enjoy using your new computers! [Note: Ivy Worldwide, the company that organized this giveaway, discovered that the original winner had cheated and was therefore disqualified.]
If You Did Not Win…
Even if you did not win this contest, I do still have good news for you! In the near future, Debt-free Scholar has planned two new exciting events that will interest you: a money-saving computer post and a new giveaway!
Money-Saving Computer Post
Next Thursday, Debt-free Scholar will publish a post explaining how to save money when buying a computer. If you did not win your college computer here, you can still save money by applying the methods outlined in this article. The post will be published on Thursday, September 10th.
A New Giveaway
Just about a month from now, Debt-free Scholar has another, slightly smaller, giveaway. So far, the details are secret, but I can give you two hints:
Hint #1: It is an electronic device.
Hint #2: It has an “i” at the beginning of it’s name.
Don’t Miss Out!
One Final Note
Even though my HP Back To School giveaway is done, there are still a few giveaways left in this twenty-five-blog promotion. Enter in these for another chance to get a free computer package!
