KoboBooks: Win $2000 Towards Summer Getaway


So we usually don't post contests. And on the surface, this looks like one of those contests you wouldn't post because it requires people buy something for it: namely a KoboBook.

However, I thought I would present my case and let ye be the judges! My case:

This contest just started July 9, 2010 and ends August 8, 2010 and it is open to US and Canadian residents.

Moreover: there are two ways to enter:

  • 1. You buy a Kobobook and you are automatically entered for the contest. Max of 6 entries per person.
  • 2. You opt in to receive special promos from Kobo (no purchase necessary).

Option #2 is only mentioned in the fine print.. let me quote:

To enter the Contest, purchase any eBook from Kobo on www.kobobooks.com OR participate by visiting www.kobobooks.com/summercontestrules and submit your first name, last name, email address, and state/province of residence.  Each eBook purchase made during the Contest Period will automatically count as an additional entry into the Contest.  Limit of six (6) entries per person, regardless of method of entry.

So you can get a free entry to this contest, no purchase necessary. Or if you are already a Kobobook buyer, now might be the time to stock up on a few.

*Remember to check your email to confirm your email addy with Kobo to be entered into the contest without purchase.

    I love my Kobo!

      I would like to get a Kobo reader but I read a lot of manga and anime, which isn't available on it yet.

        The display might not be enough for that, anyway -- pictures don't tend to be that clear. While I'd be happy to be able to get comics, the e-library field is not too advanced yet...

What do you think?
