Fred let me know that RadioShack has a slick contest going on right now called the “RadioShack Free Phones for Life Sweepstakes.” They are basing their "Free Phones for Life" prize as $25,000 based on estimated costs of $500 per year for a new BlackBerry for 50 years. I guess they assume your phone will be embedded into your brain in 50 years. 🙂 The are giving away 4 of these packages so that is 4 possible winners!
They have an odd system going of how to enter that is a bit confusing. Anybody living in the US who is 18 or older can enter to win for free at www.radioshack.com/FreePhonesForLife which gives you 5 entries into the contest. You can enter this way 5 times per week for up to 25 entries. The odd part is that you also get ONE entry for purchasing something at a RadioShack store (unless you live in California), ONE for buying something at RadioShack.com, ONE for applying for a RadioShack credit card, and ONE more for your first purchase with said new RadioShack card. Odd that you would get more entries online than when you actually buy something.
RadioShack is also placing a hard limit of 100 total entries per person or email address no matter how you enter along with a few other restrictions like: One in-store purchase transaction per person/store per day, regardless of number of items purchased; one online purchase transaction per person per day, regardless of number of items purchased; one entry via new RadioShack Credit Card (The Shack Card) application per person. Twenty Five (25) entries via Entry Method #2 (Online form) per person per week.
So what are you waiting for? Enter to win free phones for life every week until July 30th at www.radioshack.com/FreePhonesForLife
