iPad 2 Giveaway!

Update: A big congratulations to CH, who entered via the Facebook giveaway page! I will be contacting you shortly so that you can claim your prize!


Yesterday, I wrote about the new Time to Call™ app from Vonage. This free-to-download app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch allows you to make calls of up to 15 minutes to landlines and mobile phones in over 190 countries, while billing your existing iTunes account with no monthly charges or commitments.

In an effort to promote the app, Vonage is sponsoring an iPad 2 Giveaway with 75 websites in participation, EACH site giving away a separate iPad 2! Can we say fan-freakin-tastic?!! Be sure to check out http://www.callsfromsmartphone.com/ for the full list of participating sites, because you can enter all of them to increase your chances of winning (provided that you abide by each site’s respective rules, of course).

I was very surprised, humbled, and excited to have been asked to participate in this giveaway — not only because this kind of stuff is right up my alley, but because this is the biggest giveaway I have hosted on this blog, and I knew that you, my readers, would love it too. :-)

Now, on to the good stuff!

The winner of the Geek in Heels iPad 2 Giveaway will receive: one (1) iTunes gift card in the amount of $15 USD for use with his/her device; and one (1) Apple gift card in the amount of $700 USD for the purchase of an Apple iPad 2, 32GB WiFi. (If there is no access to Apple in the country from which the winner would like to purchase the iPad 2, a cash-equivalent prize will be distributed via PayPal.)

That’s $715 worth of Apple cash!!!  8-O

Now, this giveaway will run slightly differently from my previous giveaways, so please read carefully below…

Each reader is eligible for up to three entries via the following methods (each method will grant a separate entry):

  1. Leave a comment to this post about who and where you would like to call internationally with the Vonage Time to Call app.
  2. If you haven’t done so already, go to the Geek in Heels Facebook Page and “Like” the page. Then click on the iPad 2 Giveaway link (located right under the profile picture, or just use this link) to enter the sweepstakes.
  3. If you haven’t done so already, follow @geekinheels on Twitter and tweet exactly the following: I just entered for a chance to win an iPad2 via @vonage and @geekinheels at http://bit.ly/q42hcW and you can too! #timetocall

There is no need to leave extra comments here if you enter via Facebook or Twitter. ;-) (The extra comments will get deleted, anyway.)

You can increase your chances of winning by using all three methods of entry. There is only one entry allowed per person, per method (strictly enforced with a paddle!) and any additional entries will be void.

For all the rules, go to this link.

The giveaway begins as soon as this entry is published — August 13, 2011 @ 12:00am EDT — and will run until August 17, 2011 @ 11:59pm EDT. The winner will be announced here on August 18 and will also be notified by email (so please use a valid email when entering so that I can contact you if you win!) or via a Twititer DM.

Good luck, and don’t forget to check out http://www.callsfromsmartphone.com/ — with new content posted as the list of participating websites get updated — for more chances to win!
