First and foremost, this is a good idea but honestly cannot top the LG driven “Canadian Texting Championships”.
From March 13 – 15th at select Toronto area Best Buy locations you’ll be able to “go head-head with fellow texters” in “The Great Rogers Text Off”. If you do compete you can have a shot at winning a 50 inch $1,400 Samsung LCD TV (plus other prizes).
Obviously this is to get you into the store and buy phones, specifically the new texting devices from Rogers such as the Propel and Gravity. Looks like you do decide to purchase they’ll give you a $50 gift card.
Seems like it would be a good time. Here are the dates:
Friday, March 13th:
4:00 – 8:00pm in Whitby, Oakville, Brampton, Newmarket
Saturday, March 14th:
10:00am – 1:30pm in Ajax, Sherway, Richmond Hill and Vaughn Mills
2:00pm – 6:00pm in Woodbridge, Markham, Scarborough and Square One
Sunday, March 15th:
11:00am – 2:00pm in Leaside
2:30pm – 6:00pm in Fairview
4:00pm – 8:00pm Heartland, Downsview, Warden & Elgin
Here is the fine print:
“No purchase necessary. Open to residents of Ontario only, aged 18 or older. There is one (1) grand prize to be won of a Samsung TV with a retail value of approximately $ 1400. Enter at any Best Buy store in the Greater Toronto Area between March 13 – 15, 2009. Odds of winning depend on the number of entrants. Mathematical skill testing question will apply. Full rules available in-store.”
