iPhone X Give-Away (3 of them); Test me, No Lie, I Will Share Results Publicly
What is this about? – Updated 9/14/17
I’ve done a total of (7) $500 give-aways so far this year! But I want to try something different this time around:
The top 3 commenters on my blog will have the option of getting the brand new iPhone X.
$1000 in cash, instead of the phone. Your choice (cash will be paid out via PayPal – if you live overseas, you will get the $1000 instead of the phone, sorry, I don’t want to hassle with freight and overseas shipping).
Why are you changing it up?
I’ve realized that some of you who are my most consistent followers might feel underappreciated when you’re lumped into the same bucket as people who just randomly show up only for the cash give-aways.
So this is a way for me to give back to you and to show my sincere appreciation. If you haven’t engaged in any of the discussions thus far, don’t feel bad! This isn’t meant to guilt you in any way. You can start participating going forward!
How do I participate?
Anyone can participate!
The top 3 commenters on my blog will win the free iPhone X’s (or $1000 in cash if you prefer; or if you live outside the US, you’ll get $1000 instead of an iPhone).
I’m sure you’d agree that to be absolutely fair to everyone participating, we need to go with a metric that is measurable. So we’ll count strictly the comments on this blog. Not on my social media pages, because it’s impractical to count all of those manually. You can comment on old posts; because I count that as fostering discussion, so that’s fair game in my book.
Probably goes without saying, but to be very clear, I will not count spam and short superfluous one-word comments because that won’t be fair to those that are actually engaging and participating in the discussions. I understand this can be a bit subjective; so I retain the right to define what is and isn’t spam.
When is this happening? – Updated 9/14/17
Starts right now!
The actual give-away will conclude October 27th (which is the release date of the iPhone X). I will order 5 iPhone X’s on October 27th. One for myself, one for my wife, and three for the three winners (or minus whomever wants the $1000 in cash instead).
Please note that I don’t know how long it’ll take for the iPhone X’s to arrive. And then once I get them, I will need to ship them to your address, so that will take time too.
Thoughts on this give-away? Do you like this over the monthly $500 cash give-aways? Why or why not? Please know that I’m open to your ideas, and suggestions, for future give-aways; feel free to share what you think in the comments below!
