Microsoft give-away – Lumia 830 + Fitbit Flex
Rumors of the Nokia 940 have already stirred up interest in Microsoft today, but there are more new and interesting things to come. It seems that Microsoft is organizing a new contest that would have the Nokia Lumia 830 and the Fitbit Flex as prizes. The contest is only available for U.S. residents, but it is still a good opportunity to get your hands on two of the year’s most popular devices. The contest is called the #LumiaFit sweepstakes and Microsoft will choose 5 winners who will get their hands on the great grand prize.
Microsoft announced the competition last week and made it clear that only people over 16 years old and who are legal residents of the U.S. can participate in the #LumiaFit sweepstakes. You can enter the contest until November 24 at 11:59 pm. The premise of the contest is simple and maybe we would have expected a more challenging subject from Microsoft. All you need to do is go to the contest page and share the contest information on Facebook. Each of your friends who enters the contest based on your link will grant you an additional entry to the sweepstakes. Microsoft announced that they would be randomly pulling the winning names on November 30.
Each grand prize has a total value of $254 and will comprise of an unlocked Nokia Lumia 830 which you can go activate with the carrier of your choice. Once the raffle is done, the five lucky winners should be announced in just a few hours. Even though the contest is a bit frugal and we are disappointed that only U.S. citizens may participate, we do appreciate that Microsoft made entering the competition very easy. It’s a plus that you can gather entries when your Facebook friends use your shared link, but the structure of the competition does mean that there will probably be millions of entries, so competition will be tough. While I don’t like this type of contest, I do have to give Microsoft props for choosing great prizes that will surely incentivize people to take part in the #LumiaFit sweepstakes. Head on to the Microsoft contest page on Facebook and get your raffle on. You have two weeks left to participate.
