WINNERS: First off, we’d like to thank everyone who entered the contest and for helping to make the site grow. We wouldn’t be here, working day after day, if we didn’t have readers coming back! So let’s get on with the winners! Basically, we used Tweetdeck and went to our mentions tab, without looking scrolled up and down real fast and when we stopped, who ever the mouse was on, WON!
Here are the winners in order:
@thewyattgirl – Winner of the Samsung Focus Flash for AT&T
@tedsilvaiii – Winner of the Samsung Exhibit II 4G for T-Mobile
@TechVudu – Winner of the Samsung Focus S for AT&T
@RickyWilshaw – Winner of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 for T-Mobile
Again, thanks to everyone who entered, for the winners, we’ll be contacting you all via a private DM (Direct Message) via twitter, with instructions. If you don’t respond and claim your prize by Monday morning at 9 am, we’ll pick another winner. If you didn’t win, don’t worry, we’ll be doing more contests soon.
Update: We’ve made a small update to our contest, this won’t affect anyone who has already entered. We’ve been emailed several times by different people requesting that we NOT require a facebook “like,” as apparently some of you either can’t or don’t want, a Facebook account. So, we have in fact altered the rules, you can now either tweet the message (below), like us on facebook (with or without a message) or both. The option is yours. Hope this makes it easier for some.
