After a wild month of January to start the year, which included a trip to CES we are settling back in for the long stretch of 2012. First thing's first though...Giving away some of the swag we looted at CES. Plus some other almost as cool prizes.

CES Gift Bag Giveaway

Here she is boys, the Grand Daddy of all prizes. OK, so let's not get crazy but you would be a damn fool not to put some effort in to grab this swag bag from the show floor of CES. This bag comes from the hard work of TechSpy'ers Snoop-Dizzle, Shmammy and Syko who basically treated the show floor like a game of Diablo looking for Lootz.

First off the Backpack is an official Laptop Backpack embroidered with the 2012 International CES logo, which was only issued to Press at the conference. Then it is loaded down with everything from Stickers to Marley Ear Buds and much, much more...So if you would like to get in on the chance of winning this Swag Bag here is the Deets' on what needs to be done this month.

29/29/29 CONTEST:

Simple, Easy Contest.

- Have a News Score of at Least 2900 for the Month. This will include any Bonus score as well so It may only take as few as 10-15 stories for the month, less than one a day.

-Make 29 Comments, for a total score of 290

-Manage 29 Stories (Report/Approve) for a total score of 290 for the month.

Meet the criteria and you will be entered into the random drawing for the Swag Bag. I know the requirements are a bit higher than normal but this will also mean less competition for you dedicated TechSpy'ers so Good Luck to you guys. Hope the Swag Bag goes to one of the most dedicated members.

Runners up will also receive some prizes as well so even if you don't win a main prize your effort wont be in vain.


Another self explanatory contest. Submit the Biggest, Inflammatory piece of flamebait garbage you can find and....Um....I mean, submit the hottest story for the Month of love and you will win $100 Gift Card from Amazon. Let's pray it's not some poorly written flamebait title. Seriously let's pray lol.


Lead the way in comments this month and walk away with a cool $50. Usual No spam, no LOL or Cool! posts will count. If your comments contain a bulk of one word comments it will forward to the person below you. Thanks, The Management.

C_Menz  +   1147d ago
Limited wifi and no service at all other than that. Just have a phone haha. Roughing it!
C_Menz  +   1145d ago
I did find that at least it is still easy enough to comment/manage stuff on my phone in the room at night. So at least I can keep up with that.

nice 29/29/29 idea, its hard though.. well good luck to all ^_^
C_Menz  +   1143d ago
Not really. You can easily get it done in a day or two. Only hard part is if you only can submit a few stories at a time and they get stuck in limbo and are not approved.
