Heads up! Massive Sale on Garmin, Suunto, Polar, Trainers and more! There’s two huge sales going on – first is a major Garmin sale, including $100 off new Forerunner 945 and $150 off the Fenix 5 Plus. Along with the Varia Radar, Garmin Edge 130 & 1030, and plenty more.
Plus there’s the big semi-annual 20% off sale, with virtually all major trainers and power meters included. Wahoo KICKR’s, Tacx NEO’s, Elite Direto’s and Suito’s, Saris H3, Kinetic, R1 4iiii Fliiiight, Stages, and many more. Not to mention the GPS units from Garmin, Polar, COROS, Lezyne, Suunto, Apple and others.
I haven’t done a giveaway on the blog yet up until this point mostly because I’m sorta selective. I want giveaways to be big, meaningful and useful to ya’ll. Oh, and kick-ass. None of this half-eaten gel pack that I found in my car trunk from last season stuff. Go big or go home.
So, after finishing my In Depth Review of the Withings WiFi Scale last week I contacted the fine folks at Withings and asked exactly where I should send back the review unit to. After all, I’m pretty clear that I don’t keep any of the stuff I review, but instead send it back (except for some POM juice once…they didn’t want it back after I was done…go figure). Well, this past weekend they sent back an e-mail saying I could just go ahead and keep it.
I thought for a second…
And then another second…
And then I decided that instead of keeping it for myself – I’d give it away to you all! Here. For free. Yup, a $160 sports gadget…gratis.
So, here’s the deets:
I’m going about this like a random raffle drawing, except that you can get multiple ‘entries’. Here’s how:
One Entry: Simply place a comment below on this page, that’s it! No lyrics to create, or poems to make. No stories to tell, or anything complex. Only comments on this page count (nope, comments from 2 years ago don’t count).
Two Entries: Two different ways to double up here. In addition to the comment below, just put a link on your blog (if you have one) to this contest page. Or the second option is adding your Twitter account as a follower of @dcrainmakerblog and retweeting the contest announcement. By simply spreading the word, ya get an extra entry. (Note: If you’re already a follower, simply re-tweet and you get credit!)
Three Entries: Triple-time baby! This is easy – just do all three of the above! Twitter, Blog/Site, and Comment.
See, that’s pretty painless, right?
Please let me know in your comment below how many entries you’ve qualified for if more than one, as it’s super-difficult for me to lineup a Twitter account named “AwesomeRunner28” to a blog named “RunnerGuy” to a comment listed from “RunningCowTippers!”, and I certainly want you to get all your entries. I don’t need to know your account names, just how many entries.
I have no restrictions on where I’ll ship it to (I’ll be paying for shipping), but it just won’t go out FedEx First International Super-Priority Overnight if it’s to Tajikistan, Turkey or Timbuktu. But no matter where you live – the giveaway includes the whole kit and everything that came in the box. Of course, the Withings site is free, so it’s a free-free all around sorta deal. If you have any questions on the scale itself (technical, functional, etc…), post those to the review post instead.
The winner will be chosen from a container of all commenter’s printed out (dependent on how many entries you get, equals how many ‘tickets’ you get).
The contest will run for one whole week, until June 9th, 2010 at 11:59PM Eastern Time when I’ll close the comment period. I’ll announce the winner the following day.
You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget. If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section. Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos! I aim to leave no stone unturned.
I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”. So here is the most up to date list of products I like and fit the bill for me and my training needs best! DC Rainmaker 2018 swim, bike, run, and general gear list. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you? If that’s the case (but certainly not saying my choices aren’t good for women), and you just want to see a different gear junkies “picks”, check out The Girl’s 2018 Gear Guide too.
