CLOSED: The 2012 Techvibes Holiday Giveaway: Day One

The holidays are about giving. And we are honouring this tradition in grand fashion.

Welcome to the 2012 Techvibes Holiday Giveaway, powered by Best Buy. Our third-annual holiday giveaway, which will see us give away a total of seven prizes, is our most flexible yet: instead of awarding specific products as prizes, winners will receive Best Buy gift cards to buy absolutely anything they want. And for the less creative among us, we’ll be inspiring potential winners with ideas through our Best Buy Holiday Gift Guide, which will suggest products within the price range of each gift card we hand out.


Behind door number one is a $400 gift card from Best Buy. Wow, that’s a lot of money! Don’t spend it all in one place. Wait, nevermind.


How about a Jabra PRO 9400 Bluetooth Headset? For $277, this pro series headset features a user-friendly touchscreen for easy call control.

Designed with busy office professionals in mind, the Jabra can save you a lot of hassle. Thanks to multi-use technology, all your phone calls come to the same headset – just tap the talk button and start talking. Plus, you’ll have money left over for stocking stuffers.


So, you want this gift card, eh? Well, guess what pal – so does everybody else.

For your shot at victory, you’ve got to enter our giveaway. Fortunately, we’ve made entering super simple this year. Just follow this one easy step:

1. Comment on this article, telling us who and what you’d spend your winnings on. An iPad Mini for yourself? An HD television for a friend? A home theatre system for your technology-loving dog, Berkley? (Okay, we know that one’s secretly for you too.)

Totally simple, right? Oh, and we’d love it if you also followed Techvibes and Best Buy on Twitter, but it’s not a requirement for the giveaway. (Though we know a few well-connected elves in the North Pole, so it may bump you up on Santa’s Nice list.)


No purchase required.  Contest closes December 9, 2012 at midnight Pacific Standard Time. There are a total of 7 prizes available to be won (one prize per giveaway article). Open to Canadian residents excluding residents of Quebec. Odds of winning depend on number of eligible entries received before contest closes. Limit one entry per giveaway per person (up to seven entries in total). Maximum of one prize awarded per person.

Come back tomorrow for another great prize to be won.


Day Two ($500)

Day Three ($800)
