Our iPad 2 Contest Is ON LIKE DONKEY KONG

Update: Thanks to all who entered our contest! Our winner is Bill Riley from Council Bluffs, IA, who won with this silly tweet. Keep your eyes peeled for another contest very soon, and check out all the other iPad 2 contests still going on!

A few days ago we mention that we would soon be part of an amazing iPad 2 giveaway alongside the likes of HackCollege, Her Campus, and many other awesome blogs. Well, that time has finally come. From now until midnight on August 23, you can enter to win an iPad 2 courtesy of Vonage. Interested? Read on to find out why we’re running this contest and, of course, how you can get your entry put into the hat.

So What’s This All About?

We were approached by Vonage (along with about 75 other blogs) to help promote this cool new iPhone app they’ve just released called Time to Call. This app lets you call international numbers from your iPhone for a lot cheaper than you would pay going through your carrier. Calls are billed directly to your iTunes account, and calling most countries costs less than $2 for 15 minutes. There are a number of countries that’ll run you more, but for the most part you get that relatively cheap $2 or less price. Check out this video for more detail:


I’ll be testing this app over the next few days, and I’ll let you know my findings. Judging from other bloggers who have tested it out already, the Time to Call app is looking to be a pretty good option for international calling if you’ve got an iPhone.

Cool Deal: We’ve been let in on a badly-kept secret… if you download the app sometime in the near future, you’ll get 15 minutes of free talk time. It’s a win-win. Or maybe a win-win-win.

Alright, So What About The Contest???

Good things come to those who wait, my friend… but enough waiting. Here’s the 411 on the 90210 for the 867-5309. Or maybe just the contest details.

At midnight on August 23, we’ll choose one lucky winner to win an Apple gift card for $700, as well as an iTunes giftcard for $15. Yep, the prize is actually $715 in gift cards, not an iPad 2 unit itself. This is enough to buy you a 32gb iPad 2, but since it’s a gift card, you could technically put it towards something else like one of those new fancy-shmancy Macbook Airs.

So, how do you enter? Well, we’ve changed things up a bit since our last contest. The way to get your first entry in is to Like us on Facebook – however, you can potentially get 7 more entries if you’re so inclined. For those of you who hate math, that’s 8 potential entries. The odds are like totally stacked in your favor bro. The other methods to enter are:

  • Follow us on Twitter
  • Leave the funniest sub-80 character comment you can think of
  • Tweet about the contest (you can do this once per day during the 5 days)

To enter, use the cool RaffleCopter app below. The only mandatory entry method is a Facebook Like, but you’ll have a much better chance of winning if you participate in the other *easy* activities!
